Linux Like Britney Spears, Jeff Johnson did it again and decided to fork rpm once more. Following a week long outage of the main website, he announced on the Mandriva development mailing list the launch of rpm6.org, without giving much explanation. Without more information, some people speculate this was caused by an intrusive merge by a Mandriva coder without discussing beforehand, while some others speak of the heavy criticism due to the migration, which still causing issues after several months.

When I read things like that, I get really sad... There is no way Linux will get mainstream (in the desktop) when things like that still happen. I guess it's still time for mobile, servers and other areas. Right now, I do not recomend linux for the avarage joe Desktop user. This is not easy for me to admit it, but MacOSX does the job much better right now...

So where can I download this MacOSX thing? Or buy it for my computer? Is it more expensive than Windows 7?
