I agree the MacTel machine would mean equivalent performance to the best
x86 machine available with the professionalism and ease-of-use of Mac

To be blunt and honest I'm tired of spending hours configuring my Linux
distributions (Suse and Ubuntu) to work as a second-rate desktop
machine. I honestly couldn't care if my tools are free or not, I want it
to work.

If the leading Linux distributions cannot the professionalism of Mac OS
X by the 2006-2007 time period I'll probably say game over and run a
dual boot Mac OS X and Windows XP machine.
