I use Windows, since it's all that i have and is great for gaming. but i like the MacOS too, i like the style of it and have a really cool OS X style theme on my windows install. I haven't tryed Linux at all, but my freind is getting a bunch of free linux CDs from somewhere and i'm getting some of them so i'll have to wait and see.

yod@i prefer windows for gaming , just started using linux so need time to get adjusted

:withstupid: I only have Knoppix on a LiveCD, but thats good enough. I just need to push myself to learn how to "unleash the power :p" (learn some of the code). If I get a 2nd HD i might format it with Linux.

BTW, a bit of topic but still relevant to OS's. What the hell is the meaning of th busy sign on Mac OS X? A rainbow colored spining thing, how does this signify its busy processing?

Tiger is pretty good. But it still feels like I'm using a slightly reorganized version of Windows 3.1, with all those windows open and all...

They need a new GUI. It hasn't changed for 10 friggin' years!

Eh!??? :deal: :rolleyes:

Windows Has not changed much either, BTW. There is still a Start Button, and it can't be moved to the opposite side of the screen.

As far as I can tell, Mac OS X has changed FAR MORE than Windows XP changed from Windows 2000.

That is comparing MacOS X to MacOS 9. I do think that The changes in MacOS X, and WinXP were for the worst...

Mac: Where is my Control Strip!??? The Menu Bar is completely ruined... :bawl:

WinXP: The first thing I do when I use WinXP, is to switch it back to the Classic theme, and folder views, and Start Menu layout.

I don't think I like the dock so much, either...

Hey, I've got Linux. I can put my File Menu in the Title bar, so it is just like MacOS 9. I liked that about Macs. It was always in the same place.

Then I can get full use out of a Taskbar that only takes up half the bottom of the screen (like the dock), and is hidden.

While I like the "feel" of Gnome, you just can't beat the customizability of KDE. :D
