Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y PCMag compared Ubuntu, Windows, and Mac OS X to one another. "Now that the major OSs all run on Intel chips, the playing field is pretty leveled out. We compared the heavy hitters in an eight-point test to find who wins the OS battle."

I think none of the people here are average users so invariably everyone here already knows why they chose the OS they are using. But like the article said, for me, if someone asks me what computer they should get and price isn't the number one concern I would tell them to go OSX.

Its also strange to walk into regular electronics shops and hypermarkets and find apple macs for sale - and I'm talking about the arabian gulf countries!

I think its nice to see that os X is no longer treated as a niche system for artists and mac zealots.
