OSNews, Generic OSes Over the years, we've occasionally run an "Ask OSNews" feature, wherein a reader asks us a question and we answer it publicly. Lately I've really been enjoying Slate's Dear Prudence advice column and the ever-interesting Straight Dope, and I thought we should see if we can get more OSNews readers to submit questions, and turn Ask OSNews into a more-regular thing. If your question falls outside of our domain expertise, we'll try to track down an expert to help out. And of course, our responses will always be supplemented by further advice from OSNews readers in the comments. Questions are welcome on any topic ranging from OSes and computing to science and geek culture. Contact us with your questions. (Please include "Ask OSNews" in the subject). Today's question is from a young student in Hungary who's seduced by the faraway siren song of Apple's marketing and wonders, "should I switch?"

If you can live with ubuntu for a month you can live with osx for the rest of your life.

sure osx will recuire some change. but most applications ported to linux are also ported to osx. osx gets some more ports than linux ms office photoshop etc... but not that mutch more. if you managed to live a month on ubuntu you will have no trouble with osx, if you dont manage to use ubuntu in a month i think you will have trouble on osx to.

so my advice is try ubuntu if you managed get a macbook if you dont well then windows is probly your game
