    I use XP and OsX on a daily basis, to be honest there's no practical difference, both work and both have minor annoyances and minor great stuff.

    I'm braced for incoming . . . . .

    Good Stevie.... I know what you mean, but there are people here who thinks otherwise... personally a puter is like a hammer or a spanner. On the internet it's a communication tool, in the office it's a tool... if it's broken, then a paper weight.

    I'll give the devil his due: XP is a major improvement over 95/98 and (shudder) ME. It's quite usable, provided you take appropriate security precautions (as you really should with any OS.)

    But I stilll don't think it's as refined as OS X. It's the little things sometimes....

It seems neither of you want to hear anything other than MAC IS GREAT XP SUCKS. It's this type of delusional fanboyism from the minority that gives the majority of mac owners a bad name.
    Don't get it... This a Mac forum, hence "mac-forums.com" or am i reading that wrong too? I assume it's for Mac-users who adore their machines... so, why do we have a troll, patrol? Do we have something he/she/they or it wants???

    There's a "switcher's" forum for those people who have recently made the switch on their own accord!! Simply because they have gotten sick of the Windows Platform, or for the personal reasons.

    Don't get me wrong... I never said "XP sucks!!"...

    I just said

    "Microsoft Corp. SUCK!"

    And they do!

    I can sign up wherever I want. I'm not a graphics designer, but I belong to a forum, "ApeX DesignS". I'm a Mac user. I love my Mac. I just hate that my Mac doesn't work.

    I am not a switcher. Unless you count going from OS 9 to OS X switching... I've always used Macs.Do people really have to get all emo over a computer? No.

    Microsoft isn't bad. I use a lot of their products regulary, such as Xbox, the Office 2004 suit, Windows Media Player, Virtual PC, and MSN Messenger.
    If it wasn't for Microsoft, Mac OS X probably wouldn't be Mac OS X. It would be Mac OS 10, without UNIX, without aqua, kind of like Rhapsody.

    I'm a recent switcher, so excuse me, but in what way or shape did Microsoft have ANYTHING to do(besides copying it[ie.longhorn]) with aqua? or Unix?

    Are you saying this because you have Windows 2000 on your PC??? Plus, Windows XP has a file protecting procedure so nothing but Microsoft updates can change system files. Windows XP is worth it alone for the ridding of the ugly sickish cold interface pervious versions had.

    Obviously the file protection procedure isn't all that great since viruses are continually being created to find the wonderful "holes" in XP. You ever wonder why there are so many "Security Updates" when you have XP?
