I know that not everyone here is a Mac user yet, so...

Are you a right clicka or an iBook flippa?

I still use a PC, unfortunately. Hope to change that soon.

What is this "PC" you speak of?
Why is there always money for war, but none for education?

Windows computers. I believe people here call them a "blight", though.

I recently switched to windows full time actually. I noticed I just happen to get things done faster with it and have way more options software/hardware without having to think about it. Windows runs all the old software so you don't have to update as often. Im not the type to believe "out with the old in with the new". If a program works I keep using it.

Maybe I'll go back to mac in the future, the OS is more friendly and supposedly more efficient/better-design, I just don't see how it effects me productivity anymore.

It makes more sense to get a mac since it runs both OS's and if it will run the win programs you want through bootcamp.

Or you can run Windows without needing to reboot through Parallels, right?

That's how I was for a while. Got an iMac though and the PC kinda just faded away.
