Now I never meant to say that Mac OSX was bad, or even useless. I plan on using the Mac OSX x86 version on my laptop when it comes out. However, my posts did not mean that Macintosh couldn't do what the PC could. What was meant was that Macintosh didnt have as many options as the PC. The PC has more software than the Macintosh, which gives the user more choices. The Macintosh does have good software, but not nearly as much options as the PC does. Same for personalization, and functionality, in todays market you have way more options for the PC than you do Macintosh. And as per operating systems, the PC can run pretty much all of them, including OSX. Macintosh may be able to as well, but not likely as smooth as the PC can, especially in x86 based operating systems during emulation.


But the Macintosh is becoming a PC. The new x86 Macintosh computers are being designed as dual-boot systems. That is, they will boot into either Windows or Mac OS X. Of course, they will be able to boot into other operating systems that are compiled for x86 architecture as well, such as Linux.

Anyway, this is my final post in these forums. No offense intended, but DOS games are not exactly my forte...

Regards,

Wally is Right.

Now there, you see, was the point of the argument. Wally was defending macintoshes, while we were saying PCs were superior, hence why the Mac OSX was changing to PC.

Nice argument, too bad you can't stick around,

Sorry Wally, I honestly didn't think it was you, but I don't think it's one of those smilie-guests either: he is way too intelligent for those guys who can't even run 5 words together.
