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.

Your mad Google skills impress me. Though I share your taste in "Sennhiser [sic]," what you didn't appear to get in my post was that I was mocking your association with brand rather than model, not seriously suggesting you think McDonald's food is a premium product. No one is that retarded. But again, there you are making a weak argument from some random page to suggest that 'enthusiast' is disparate from 'premium.' Why don't you just orient yourself with the communities that buy the products?

Hey, do know who fabricates the nVidia GPUs used in all of those video devices? And all of the memory used on the cards? I guess those cards are all the same. Shame.
