Thank You Apple!

I looked into getting one of those Mac Minis for my mum and asked how much it would cost to upgrade the ram from 512mb to 1gb. For what they wanted for a lousy extra 512mb I could get 2gb for a PC. Macs are not good value for the money, IMO. I'm a bang for buck buyer and Macs are far from that.

Can you tell me why Vista is crap? I got it for free so it was not like I was forced to use it, but I prefer it vastly over XP.

I have a Powerbook and a Macbook Pro. However, I have setup a OS X on an Intel-based pc.

Yeah I agree that their prices are kinda steep. I always buy my ram from a second source since Apple charges a premium to install it. It's unfortunate that installing ram is so hard on a mac mini.

Surprised to see that among headfiers there are more Mac OS X users than Linux + Vista users combined.

Vista Ultimate x64 FTW. I also have Sabayon Linux installed, but use Vista 80% of the time.

I am pretty surprised how many people run multiple OS's

I can tell you why I any many others don't like it, but I'm afraid it would be falling on deaf ears.

Then why the hell do you even bother giving your opinions here if discussion isn't your priority?

P.s Vista is fine.

Gentoo linux + MythTV got me hooked, great possibilities for tweaking.

How was it? Just the same as running a genuine Mac?

What's different about the wanderman edition? Nlite?

That's a cop out. Give us some concrete reasons why you think it sucks. We won't bite.

"Then why the hell do you even bother giving your opinions here if discussion isn't your priority?"

Because I was more or less answering the OP's question/poll, that's all.

Discussion? Or do you really mean "endless internet pissing contest"? Hey, you can use whatever OS you like, but I'm not going to try to preach to the converted. If Vista works for you, that's good. It doesn't for me, at least not at this point. If/when there is a legit reason for me to spend yet another hunk of cash on yet another "New & Improved!" M$ OS, then I'll do so.
