Windows all the way although I prefer Xp Home rather than Vista. When I upgraded I found it annoying how it tried to help me with every single little thing, Personal my a**. Besides, Vista didn't run my graphic/sound cards and my gaming experience went down the drain so I stand firm with XP. :P

can't mac and pc just get together and create a beautiful bundle of joy? OH WAIT they did. dual booting. victory.

personally I like both depending on what I'm doing. macs are great for video/audio editing, web design, other things of that nature. PCs are great for those of us gamers out there, and programming (although linux ftw there).

Well. it's a ............pc for me. Vista is the OS. A tweaked Gateway. It ain't stock any more!!!!

Tangy, how much RAM do you have and what type of hardware? Vista won't run well on old hardware and is much better with 2g or more of RAM.

I play computer games, so I definitely have a PC. I program in Linux. I used to dual boot, but now I just boot with Knoppix if I need Linux. I run XP 64 bit edition. You can really optimize it to run more bare bones than Vista (obviously) but also standard XP or a Mac. Only Linux beats it in terms of minimizing system resource usage.

Macs aggravate me. They definitely have their uses, especially when it comes to working with graphics and audio, but as a college student, I can definitely say that a lot of younger people own Macs simply as a status symbol or because they have more indie chic or something. I hate the iMacs because of their utter lack of modularity, and I dislike how regular Mac desktops start at the low end with not much to look at in terms of the RAM, video card and hard drive, but have a processor that could run all of NASA at once. What's the point in that? Plus, Macs are extremely overpriced.

Not to mention my audio recordings are intentionally Albini-esque (i.e. clean and dry with very little post-recording production if any) so I don't really need the audio processing power of the Mac anyway.
