    Default Mac, PC, Linux ... what are you using?

    prompted by the firefox and x.4 threads, i thought this was a worthwhile question. there seem to be a lot of us mac users about these parts, which interests me.

    this is categorically not about advocacy or point-scoring or any of that: i'd like to think nobody here would stoop to petty sniping. it's simply about which machine you use as your preferred platform. i really don't want to know why, just what.

    hopefully there'll be a poll attached!

    o, i agree - in normal circs it's a numbingly tedious argument, and that's why i specifically said i don't want to know why people use what they use. save us from that.

    but in this instance - on this forum - i think it's valid. for instance, a thread simply titled "when's 10.4 coming out", without containing signifiers such as, er, "mac": outwith the context of a dedicated macintosh forum, that should be meaningless or confusing, but here people have understood it immediately. which just got me wondering, that's all ...

    i guess it's just a way of feeding my own vague sociological interest in the correlation between computer and personality. but that makes me ever so slightly tragic, i admit

    I use a mac at home because historically that has been the platform I have been able to blag the best software for, so it is the OS me and my partner now understand best...

    It's a shitty Imac running OS9.2 with a 6gig hard drive however. Not that I'm complaining, but it's why I don't really do mp3s or big mixes very often...

    o don't mind me, grimly!

    a certain amount of narky, obnoxious, snidiness is a characteristic of many PC users - it usually stems from OS envy

    mind you it's always the maccies that start up these threads !

    This poll needs another option:

    "would use linux if it supported my goddamn wireless card, so stuck using windows"

    oh well. i give a reluctant vote for PC

    i prefer mac because of its stability and ease of use. but also because that's the only thing i can use.
