Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

I really don't get this argument.

Really Windows 7 will remain for a long time, so why would you need to switch ?

(not that I care, I'm a Linux user myself)

Oh my Windows PC will remain. I might leave it there and just replace one of my dual monitor setup with an iMac initially. So I'll have my PC where it was but single monitor and the iMac where my current 2nd is.

But I won't be chasing hardware/performance upgrades in the Windows system anymore because in a 'few' years I won't be able to get software upgrades.

And possibly sooner than that, we'll start to see games that are Windows 8 only.

The fact that my Windows environment is now in the EOL countdown means I should start looking elsewhere so I'm prepared.

I don't have to worry about Windows so much, because I only use it part of the time at work.

But I would say, Windows 8 is like Vista, a rushed job, Microsoft still needs to figure out how to do it proper.
