Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Thanks to Apple's Boot Camp beta, long-time Mac users are trying out Windows XP, and Windows users are starting to pick up Macs. Trying out the "other side" can be confusing at first. ExtremeTech has a simple little guide that makes this trasition an easy one. Some things discussed are what programs are great for each OS, as well as how to get around your new environment.

"The addition of bootcamp is only going to see more people switching to OS X (conjecture). Windows users going to the Apple store to get the Powerbook they've always wanted to try. Once you spend a little time with OS X, you'll never want to go back to MS"

I've spent time with OS X and though I admit it's nice, I'm not going to go rush to the Apple store and get a Powerbook for that reason only.

Don't misunderstand-I don't necessarily like Windows per say, but I have no use for OS X, which is my point: If/when I get an Apple/OS X (or whatever it may be in the future), it will be because I have a use for it. I don't buy computers for "gee whiz" factors. As for security, I don't rely on my Windows computer to keep me safe (admittedly these days, not a wise thing to do), I use a Linux box in combination with other software, utilities, etc. - again, because I have a use for them.

That's just *my* opinion too ;-)
