Mac hardware is best for Macs, x86 hardware is best for Windows and, of course, Linux rocks on both. Penguin wins!!!!!!!

linux for wired networking-related & occasional desktop + general exploring of 20th century, os x for anything (if on laptop and apple doesnŽt suck with their attitude at that moment), windows for building a house. but for building the whole Rome, iŽd take VIC-20 any day.
