    And the last time I installed Ubuntu on my desktop I couldn't get the 'sexy' graphics to work with my graphics card, yet Windows 7 does all the 'sexy' stuff no problem.

    Reminds me of the Robin Williams impersonation of Bill Gates...

    Monopoly? That's just a game son! I'm after world domination!

    So? If certain things work for one company, it's only a matter of time before there mimicked. Couldn't care less that windows 7 copied elements of mac's os, all the better for me the consumer.

    Most people use Windows. Windows is better. Although i am not entirely sure this is true but i have read that Linux has a lower share of users than Macs. In which case, surely it is either the system with the most (Windows) or least (Linux, excluding really small OS's) user share that is best. Nobody should pick the awful middle man Mac. Bin them all.

    That is the ugly truth!

    I'm pretty sure the high usage of Windows is mainly part to the monopoly that many people have said they have had or still have.

    Wow, how to start a flame war - and I'm foolish enought to walk right into it

    True.

    Windows is better.
    Opinion not fact, and the sentance that could easily ignite a flame war! Personnally I believe OS X is better - but that's my opinion. Even though I'm currently running Windows 7. Mac hardware is too expensive!

    but i have read that Linux has a lower share of users than Macs.
    I'd question this and ask the source? Linux is free and millions of people have dowloaded it. I recon the installed user base of Linux is a lot higher than meny people would guess at - including Microsoft. The number using it as their primary OS may be less than OS X installs. But I think their are more Linux users in total (second OS) than OS X. But I'm guessing.

    Bin them all.
    Works for me... BeOS or AmigaOS?

    Everyone knows Macs are rubbish. The ranting every Mac owner does about everything from Apple simply proves this. My opinion, but proved correct by the masses using Windows. Simples.

    I do love Linux too though. Loving Windows 7 at the moment.

    So by that logic the best artist at the moment is JLS cause they're at the top of the charts?

    It is?

    Simply saying something doesn't make it true.

    @ Couldn't get sexy graphics - with linux or most things come to think about it, if you don't put the time in then you dont get anything back or out of it - plenty of guides about and read me etc ref compiz and requires less processing power to do the sexy graphics then an i7 chipset , dedicated GPU etc in comparison to windows 7 and also an older PPC mac can do all those type of graphics things - admitedly not as brilliantly as compiz hence why I tri boot but OS X is still getting better by the update ( and new releases so looking forward to there next 64 bit release )

    Just because something is used by 90% of users or x amount of users has no reflection on how good it is

    Anyway not going to post back as not wanting to get into a flame war - had enough of them and just gonna simply agree with tmcd35 and call it a day

    Would probably say JLS sales are quite low compared to the Beatles or say even Michael Jackson. JLS have probably sold a pitiful amount of records this week which is why they are top of this weeks charts. Not really a good comparison really but Windows is like the Beatles who have sold massively for a long time. Apple are rubbish. My GF had an Ipod for ages then could not believe how much better a creative Zen player was. Apple are all about the polish and sparkle but there are only a few who fall for that. The rest of us buy what is best

    God save us from the Apple Fanbois haha!

    The worst thing that happened in domestic IT - Commodore and Atari went bust.

    The best thing that happened in domestic IT - The iMac was released and Linux got cult status.

    Why?

    Because my OS is better than your OS flame wars always have been and always will be fun

    And M$ fanboys tend to be the biggest culprits! Says something - maybe they are a tad insecure in their OS choice
