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.

While I might agree about the Mac hardware (I use the word MIGHT), there are tons of Linux OSes out that are better and more stable and possibly more feature rich. Different versions of Linux Mint have been hyper stable and reliable.

Quite often the OS doesn't really matter, it's the applications available that do, and well, this is exactly where Linux tends to fall short.

Maybe he just don't want to use Linux?
Just because you and I use it and like it doesn't mean it would work for him.
