i soooooo hate windows. the viruses drive me crazy and the incessant notifications and "5 software patches downloaded" craziness every other day made me give up on windows.
so...i would like to use linux/x-windows/etc.. but, having been forced to use them for school for so long when they weren't mature...i hate them too.
so the compromise is i guess evil apple. apple is a "steal your money" company, but its stuff works; few viruses and you get the functionality of windows. i also really like the mail handler (i so HATE windows live!!) and installing software and routine stuff like just ejecting a flashdrive is soooo much simpler.
