It's all frill and looks, with difficulties to get to any functionality at all. But, I mainly have issues with Mac's.

i use an outdated version of Mint. Originally got it for the wobbly windows and desktop cube etc because with a generic windows desktop, that just looked sexy. but since I've gotten over all that I'm still finding it a nice OS. Anyone use gnome 3?

Havn't ever used a mac for more than 2 minutes so i can't really talk but maybe you're just not part of the mac demographic?

I would say programming is much easier on mac os x than any other operating system. And as well as gaming.

Hahahahaha. Have you ever tried programming on _any_ Linux distro? They have a ton of the mainstream languages installed, and you can compile from the command line. Also, I don't see how gaming on a Mac is so easy when you can only play a handful of games.

I Have tried programming on a Linux distro, I didn't like it so much. And you can play almost all steam games on mac.
