Even the topics here are some time ago ..... I have changed in the past from Windows (2000 and XP) to Mac OS X. And I can make the same things on it then with Windows or Linux (ok, can´t build a new kernel).
I don´t like to say that a Mac or the operating system on it is better then Windows or Linux ..... but I prefer Mac OS X moren then Windows or Linux.
If someone has troubles using a Mac ..... try to ask (also in german) maybe I can help.
