It has been a while since I checked the Ubuntu forums on a daily base. How come? I've finally bought that Mac I was chatting about in some older posts. It isn't exactly the model I wanted (the Apple iMac Intel 20 Inch) but after some good thinking I realized an Apple Mac Mini G4 with 80GB + SuperDrive + WIFI/BT would suffice.

I didn't had to learn about Mac OS X and the Mac I bought since I know that all from experience and work. So it was immediately using it for some duty. I bought the Mac to:

- Surf on the internet
- Email
- Write letters / brochures
- Manage my iPod and my whole Music Library
- Organize and (minimaly) edit my photographs

I must say the Mac and Mac OS X just works as I expected. I'm very happy I bought it. On a daily base I save a lot of time with the build in applications and possibilities for batch editing. Now that I have a Mac Mini with Mac OS X and a notebook with Ubuntu Linux I can finally say: "No more dual booting and no more Microsoft Windows XP". Not that Microsoft Windows is a bad OS, but Mac OS X and Linux are just more handy, transparant and easy to adjust.

Woohoo! I'll be honest...the only reason I use linux is because I can't afford OSX & I'm tired of Windows.

I just don't want to have to buy Mac hardware, even though it looks nice.

In my eyes Apple isn't that much better than MS, they just have some style and finess. They to try to lock in their customers, they make a closed source OS and they support drm with all their heart.:mad:

They might have some good hardware and OS X is probably a lot better than XP but I would not buy a mac.

Yes, that's true. I also think that Apple are just as bad as Microsoft, if not worse at locking people in as they require their own hardware.
