    Yep, solid programming right? Like in Windows. I agree.

    What do you guys think of the theory that a lot of people (of course not all) stick with the first OS they learned to use?

    I my Hackintosh. My INTP built it for me.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    90% of my use has been Windows for two reasons:
    1. Work
    2. Cost

    I have always preferred Macs and am using one right now

    My first computer was an Apple IIe, bought in 1984, when I was 10.
    I was programming in Basic by the time I was 11.
    I played Castle Wolfenstein, Epix Games (like the Olympics), and Questron.
    Then we bought an Apple IIc.

    Then my Dad bought a 386.
    I lost interest in computers at that point.
    Then I got into playing electric guitar, lifting weights, and girls.

    My first computer was a Pentium III with Windows 98.
    Then I bought a Pentium IV with Me.
    Then I got sick of it all and didn't buy a new system until an HP Pavillion a250, w/ a 2.4 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM, with Windows XP.

    After that I was using my PC for work, school, and now my biggest hobby, home music production.

    I have invested a shameful amount of money on digital audio interfaces, nearfield monitor speakers, and software (sequencers, DJ applications, and virtual instruments) to allow me to record my guitars, vocal tracks, bass, Access Virus KC synthesizer, etc. and still have the flexibility of using digital software based instruments in a multi-track environment.

    I am open to using a Mac, but will not have an opportunity to do so until I buy an iPad later this year.

    My SIL is a Jazz musician and head of performing arts at a private boys' school. He has just installed a couple of Mac labs with Garage Band and accessories as a starter plus all of the other fruit for the older boys.

    He showed me an amazing DVD - multimedia presentation put together by a 10yo on Chick Correa complete with sound, video and transitions.

    Can't wait to play with the iPad but I'm looking forward particularly to the iPhone 4s arrival downunder later this month.

    How lucky are you - Steve Jobs would have to be the hottest nerd on the planet! Great mind and vision. So what if he is picky! ...but I don't have to work with him.

    Best I could do was a Cert. Developer at the end of the 80's. LOL I work, teach and develop online learning resources in a totally Mac environment (10 labs of 24 plus lecturer machines and overheads and a machine on each lecturer's desk).

    How cool is it to have all of your creative SW provided and a tax deduction for your hardware - my work is also my play
