Nope, no chance. The Mac is so superior...

Except for video games and my corporate remote access (which will only work with windows and IE) through vpn, I do everything else on my Mac.

Even with my company network and remote access, I can now use my Mac running windows under parallels.

I really do think once you go Mac, you never go back. I voted that I like both, because I do see XP as a not-so-bad OS that I still have to use 8 hours, 5 days a week. The problem with Windows is that even if the code is 100% solid, it's only as stable as the hardware on which it's running.

No, of course not. Though in my line of work I have to use Windows for many things, and use Linux for a good majority of things for which I'd have to use Windows. So my Windows exposure is actually limited, since I use a Linux workstation with Crossover Office to do most things I'd use a Windows machine for.

The only time I use Windows is when I'm diagnosing something that absolutely must be native Windows, and even then I'll hop onto one of our Windows servers for that.

For my own personal computer use, it's Mac all the way from here on out. Therefore I voted with the No Way! button.

OK I went for Both - but thats because I need to use Windows - I love my Mac - and through the week the PC is not turned on in the evenings - during the day I spend my time on Windows desktops and servers - I don't have a choice in that.

I really do like OS X - but I do still require the use of Windows for some things (yes I know I could run Windows on the MacBook but I don't really see the point as long as I have a Windows desktop here as well) there are some apps that I can't find for OS X that I have on my PC and I don't see the point in paying for virtualisation software - again if I have the app on the desktop..

Perhaps, in a perfect world - I wouldn't use Windows at all - but for now - it serves a purpose.

I have no need for Windows.. Not even to stream media to my Xbox 360..My Mac can do that too. I haven't touched my Windows system in months.

I use both - I think that my iMac 20" is fabulous and beats the pants off my Sony Vaio except that I live in Portugal and finding tangible support is very difficult should anything go wrong. With my PC the guy "next door" can always fix it!!

I use both on a daily basis as I work in the engineering field and am required to use a CAD program, something there really isn't much to choose from on the Apple side of things.

I don't hate Windows/PC, but my preference for home use is with Apple/Macs.
