    Mac here.

    I do use Parallels for XP, though I cringe every time I use it.

    Got my first Apple at age 8, when my folks got an Apple IIe to use for their business. My brother and I wanted to play with it soooo bad. They made us learn how to type before we could use it. So we both picked up typing REAL fast... He's now a die-hard Linux user, and I'm still a Mac-Crackhead.

    Mac, pure Mac, and I was PC before Windows (an old DOS gal). PC at work, though, and I hate using it, so I take my Mac with me.

    I'm wondering how I can sync my Mac with my Droid (sorry, but I hate the Droid calendar).

    Clinging to XP at work (this is where my Droid syncs), running OSX Leopard at home. Droid connects to my Mac via USB with no trouble.

    All in all from my job i experienced one thing: MACs r expensive and just for grafixx or eyecandy. Setting up a real productive Server/Client Network with active directory domain is just impossible with mac,,,,and that is what makes it count.

    Linux is just good for office working, though it relly improved over past years to a good adequate for windows pc


    my 2 cents
