I'm a recent addition to the mac fan club. Can't wait for Macworld on the 15th.
I'm running Leopard here on my Macbook Pro. Don't think twice, this is the best operating system in the world. I'm willing to pay the Apple markup just for the fact that I'm running essentially the most advanced system available.
That is awesome to hear Sahir!! It really amazes me how fast people will shut down the thought of using a Mac. So many people have so many bad things to say about Mac. But I think people still have this impression that Mac's capabilities are still running in the Apple 1 era.
Somebody at the company I work for told me they don't like the fact they can't get into Mac like they can in Windows (i.e. registry). This partially has to do with why Mac is so stable and secure. Granted, Mac is starting to face more issues with virsus's, trojans, and security holes. But we are still talking a significantly less amount compared to Windows.
I have mentioned this fact in another post on the forums regarding security at DefCon11. It's no wonder why 70% of the users were running Mac in the Capture the Flag hacking competition. They know they can connect to the Fedora Core server, which was the core server of the game, and not have to worry about security, respectively. As opposed to the security issues when connecting an insecure Windows laptop.
The implementation of the Terminal in Mac alone makes it stand out! I am learning how to really take advantage of the Terminal and put it to full use!
Zippy, you talk about MAC being more secure. Could this be because no programmers would write a virus that would only affect the 3 MAC users in the world? I know if I wanted to take out as many computers as I could that I would write it for Windows.
