    Switched to Linux (Ubuntu) about a year ago and I will never go back.

    Is Linux an "operating system" that is used on Apple products? I keep hearing that the Apple is simpler, more reliable and intuitive system. Anybody got experience with both Microsoft and Apple? I know you gotta dig deeper into your pockets to afford Apple.

    Well I guess it technically could be used but why pay more to do something you can do on a PC?
    I have a 4 year old Toshiba laptop (Celeron 1.35, 1 gig of memory, 80 gig hard drive) and a guy at work jaw dropped when he saw it working. (He just spent a boatload of cash on a new Apple laptop).
    If:
    1) money is no problem (Apple)
    2) you are a gamer (PC)
    3) you only use the computer for basic stuff like email, web surfing and maybe basic drawing/photoshop (Linux)

    It's not really i think i use
    all this SO and linux it's not the most simple to use,maybe it' the most complicated because you need know unix for a lot of operations and installs.

    Sorry but I am not sure I understand your phrasing.

    The last part I get, I think.
    Maybe it was true of Linux many years ago but not anymore.
    I've been using Ubuntu for a year and I have absolutely no idea about unix.
    Just download and burn to CD Ubuntu and you can boot up from it and see what it is like.

    Very true ...

    I might append #1 by adding that the Mac is great if you have absolutely no idea how it works and don't care.

    #2 if you're a gamer and enjoy wiping your drive clean & re-installing Windoze every 6 months.

    #3 Run Linux if you despise Microsoft products and want complete control of your system.

    Linux really shines as a server OS. Once it is configured, it'll run for months hosting web, e-mail, VPN, firewall and Windows file sharing. I've had Red Hat servers run without interruption for over a year.
