    The best thing that Apple has ever made, in my opinion, is OS X.

    Really? On Mac you have to go over to internet and download dmg then copy it in to app folder where in Ubuntu:

    just type terminal : sudo apt-get install "app-you-need" and it does it for you

    And to remove app from mac you have to go to app folder search for it and delete it manually ( and if you want to remove all setting you have to go and search for it in five more folders...)
    Where in Ubuntu you just go to Ubuntu SW center and click remove..
    or
    terminal : sudo apt-get remove "app-you-dont-need" and it will remove all app settings too!

    So while you have downloaded your dmg Ubuntu terminal will be finished installing an app!


    I have a MacBook Pro with OS X Lion which is dual booted with Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu boots much faster that OS X..

    One Reason: I prefer to use it in production over Ubuntu. I cannot do the work that I do, in Ubuntu. It isn't possible. That's why.

    Opinions are like a55holes. Everybody has one. You will justify your opinion and build your case. As an IT person since 1981 I have seen many OSs come and go. Can anyone say OS2? I started using Linux about 10 years ago and have had many heartaches with Linux making it work with hardware. What is different is that you need your skills and wits to make it smooth. I happen to like that but sometimes it is frustrating and sometimes you can't get there with Linux.

    Ubuntu was the first Distro that made things work easier than other Distros. I have tried most of them but 12.04 has been a two edge sword. OSX is winning with most people because it is easy for one that just want a computer but views it as an entertainment box. Making it work with ipad and iphone makes it an easy choice. Apple has kept their eye on the prize. Yes you pay a lot for the convenience, but Ubuntu is not free. Your time spent getting it to work is your sweat equity. Right from the start you have to download it, make and ISO then install it. Setting it up and getting it to work like you want it is a lot of time spent that Mac users don't have to spend.

    My Ubuntu is faster, smoother, (Compiz is still not right) and more flexible. The cube is fantastic and all the little shortcuts make it time well spent. Giving back and helping others in my family is fun because Ubuntu just works and Windoz just sucks with all the viruses and trojans that attack it. I call it pennies from heaven because as long as there is Windoz and Mac we will make money fixing it. Not many IT people have to work on Linux. They just set it up and it runs.

    If Ubuntu team concentrates on integration with the cloud and makes things work with Android and other tablets like Apple does it would be a game changer instead of fighting over Cinnamon, Gnome, or KDE. Those are just opinions. Everybody has one.

    No matter how much you know, there's more to learn and solving those Linux-related issues is either trivial or makes you learn. So you get you "investments" back with a tidy "profit".

    In my own opinion, Mac is just a pretty version of Linux. it does almost exactly the same except for one really annoying fact that it can run silverlight for netflix and adobe suit and even more annoyingly microsoft excel that unfortunately nothing native to Linux can compete with.

    Netflix is going to drop silverlight and adobe suit is no more, moving to the cloud and subscription only http://www.tested.com/tech/tablets/4...reative-cloud/
    In any case unless you are a pro and dish out $700+ in addition to the over priced Mac GIMP is good enough for most things (and hey, please support FOSS, these guys make this amazing software and give it to you for free) now that PS is only for subscribers there will be no more "freebies" so there will probably be less people using PS, once they are off it they would realize that they don't really need it for all these years

    Nothing can compete with excel?? It depends on what you use it for. As a simple spreadsheet LO is quite adequate, for other things (stats or scientific computing) gnumeric is actually better, not to mention something magnitudes more powerful like R, for database, well why the hell do you even use excel??

    If anything goes wrong, you get to buy the latest system.

    You can brag to your friends that since you don't mind paying a lot for a Mac with mediocre specs so you must be rich.
