"Why" you might ask? Because we're not 12 anymore. The requirements for getting the most out of this site will take at least the maturity level of an open-minded 15 year old. We're not here to fool around with something as trivial as "leet speak." I already know that I am elite, why waste my time to prove it to a bunch of newbies?
As mentioned before, leet speak (or 1337 5p34k for those who can't read) is encouraged while choosing a handle, just be sure to make it friendly. A general rule of thumb is to limit yourself to one number to three letters. People need to not know who you are, but they must be able to identify you. Once you've chosen an appropriate name with a mix of elite characters, it's time to move onto choosing the right operating system.
Windows was invented by Bill Gates and Microsoft in 1985. People were impressed because it was the first operating system ever, and it was somewhat stable. Windows has become the #1 choice for everybody (including hackers) over the last couple decades. Major benefits of using Microsoft as your hacking station are listed here:
* The first operating system ever.
* It is the oldest, and most stable.
* Most people use it.
* Provides good user interface.
* You can download it for free (if you know what you're doing).
While Macintosh OS isn't nearly as stable as Windows (I don't even know what it's based off, but it isn't Windows, so it CAN'T be that stable), but it does provide a fair amount of stability along with it's best feature: eye candy.
As mentioned above, how people percieve you can determine your level, and while you might have elite hacking skills, they're not nearly as impressive unless you do it in style. This is what makes MacOS the perfect choice for people who don't have enough skill, and make up for it with a good looking operating system. Both of which are extremely important.
Now that you have learned to be mature, have established a second identity, and have chosen to use the stability of Windows XP as your hacking OS, it's time to move on to the next step in becoming one of the elite: customizing your hacker desktop.

PLEASE READ THE FAQ BEFORE E-MAILING ME! I hate it when I'm asked the same questions over and over again. There have been too many times where I have lost it and hacked people who don't bother reading the answer beforehand. Don't put yourself in this situation. You've been warned.
