Default I've finally done it....

I've gone Mac. I just bought a Mac Mini from a guy at work. Love it already. 1.66ghz, 1gb ram, 100gb HD, internal wireless b&g, Superdrive, and upgraded mouse and keyboard.

I just couldn't pass up the deal. it was only $300. Unfortunately, that was my mod money for a while, so no more modding for a bit.

And I am still learning the differences in operation, but it is growing on me a lot....

How many others use mac?

Good man!!

I've used Macs for years. I'm a graphic designer I like PCs too, but my next computer, either desktop or laptop, will be a Mac.

So how do you like OSX?

I second the upgrade. I'm running 10.4.8.

i'm on 10.4.8. just updated it last night. I'm liking it more and more. Now to just find the photo editing software and video editing stuff everyone is talking about (Read: I need some adobe products)

Got this mainly to set up and start learning Ruby on Rails, as one of my friends has some contract work I can do for him once I learn it. But I think this will be my main PC soon.

Check out iMovie. I've only used it briefly, but it'* pretty easy to use for videos.

iBook G4 user checking in. :P

I don't like it a whole lot. and I can use a PC easier. But I suppose it isn't bad. I dunno. Its not my favorite. But it has its perks!!! To each their own, but i can see why you mac guys DO like it.
