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?"

I agree,

My freind recently bought a mac and it is driven him nuts with the little things. I thought he was crazy untell I gave it a try, the more I used the more the it was aparent.

While there were things that were cool I found my self saying, hay thats in the gnome desktop also. He also bunrt me a few files and when i got home to check them out Ubuntu would not read them unless I was in root. (Not shure if that is a normal thing for linux type os's as im makeing the switch from windows) But hay they do look nice, but then so does a HP with Ubunut Studio 9.04.
