Why do you own a Mac and why did you install Linux?
As a current PC user of Vista and Ubuntu (see specs and sig below), I'm interested to know why you guys have decided to:
1. Buy Apple products
2. install Linux on your computers, either for dual boot, virtualization or to replace OS X.
I am contemplating buying an iMac someday (when I have some money) because the OS is more solid than Windows, the software and hardware are optimized for each other and you don't have to tweak the system to get it to work like in Linux. I don't mind the tweaking myself (command line, etc) but my wife and children don't deserve that hassle. I plan to install Ubuntu and Vista and triple boot with rEFIT.
Anyway, back to you... why did you make the move? Why Apple? Why Linux?
