Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y If you're a Vista-wary Windows user who would rather switch than fight, should you move to a Linux distro or Apple's OS X? InformwationWeek asked a Mac fan and a Linux advocate to lead a guided tour of each OS.

I say Mac because I quite frankly think the average user does not have the patience or the knowledge to do the configuring mentioned earlier.

I do, however, think that if a user buys himself a Mac, he has the best of all possibilities. He can still install an easy to use Linux like Fedora or Mint, install Windows, and run Mac OS X as well, and all on one machine.

Frankly, I love OS X, and it's powerful UNIX underpinnings make it more than capable of almost anything any other OS is, but as always, each person just has to experiment and find what works best for them.
