Apple I recently bought one of the new dual core PowerMacs. Having used the machine for a couple of weeks, I thought I would share some of my observations and feelings about it. First, let me get my biases out in the open. I have, for about four years, very happily used Linux on my desktop. Doing so has made me very comfortable with the UNIX environment in general, and with GNOME specifically. During that time, I have used OS X machines on a regular basis, so I am quite comfortable in that environment as well. Since I switched to Linux, I have not used Windows for anything more than the occasional bit of software testing or lab work, and generally feel quite uncomfortable with it. Thus, this article is very much written from the perspective of someone who finds OS X and Linux pleasing on principle. I implore the reader to make his own value judgments based on my comments.

It just occurred to me that you didn't understand the function of the brackets in the made up quote I wrote. Brackets in a quote represent additions or substitutions to a quote to clarify meaning, which in my post I was using to point out that you were intentionally ignoring his comment about the pre-built Dells in order to dismiss his comments about noise on the grounds that he made the X2 himself. Since you didn't say it yourself, I took the liberty of pointing it out with the brackets.
