    Bill Gates bans apple from his house - aka nerdfest 2009!

    Microsoft boss Bill Gates bans his children from using Apple products... but his wife admits she'd like an iPhone | Mail Online

    That is just funny. Your kids cannot have an ipod because you hate apple. Ipod is the only good product the company makes, so they are not really a threat.

    That's pushing it. I'd rather run OS X than Windows any day of the week.

    I'd rather run OS X or Linux than Windows. I can get more done faster than in Windows. Use Linux all day at work, and OS X at home.

    Each one has their benefit.

    Linux - Programming
    Windows - General computer use

    Windows is for weenies. If you have to run it, run it in a VM on linux. If you can't rebuild a kernel you shouldn't be using a computer anyway. Its like driving without a license.

    Apple! For people who don't know how to use a computer! But seriously, I'll stick with XP over OS X and Vista.

    I never would have thought this would turn into a Mac vs PC thread.

    I'd take windows 3.1 over Vista. I'm going to cry when my Windows 7 Beta runs out in August.

    I was thinking the same thing... I think we need some kind of tag on the thread as a "nerd alert"
