Not to be a jerk, but Tiger is actually the 5th version of OS X:
10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4

stupid mac whores...yea...switch to mac and you wont get any viruses or spyware...and you also wont get 90% of the programs that are compatible only with PC. im not about to give up all the compatibility of a PC for a virus free comp...i would rather pay 40 bucks a year for the latest anti-virus. and im gonna hear soon about 'oh but the mac supports office, photoshop, dreamweaver...yea...ok....does it support all the latest games and will it run at the speed as a PC? NO....a 3000 dollar dual proc mac with 9800pro/xt will still run slower than a 1000 dollar pc with an athlon 64 and 9800 pro...mac whores really need to stop preaching...them and their holier than thou attitude....mac is like bose...overpriced peice of crap...

Anonymous is just another unemployed PC loser who cant afford to switch so he has to defend the whole compatibility crap. Sure pc's "crash" on more apps than the mac. Is that what they are so proud of? Hmmmm

Yeah, the windows people get alot of value with their awesome machines, cmon, give them their due....they get far more viruses, they have so many more security leaks, they have an operating system thats as old as dirt, and runs like it, they are all computer experts because they spend so much time fixing them rather than using them, they are all mcse certified bacuse if they figure they can make some money because they spend their lives fixing them, oh yeah, dont forget, the price.....all that for around $500 or better. What value, I think Ill run out and buy 2.....After all I need some bookends.

Actually, you won't get 100% of the programs that are compatible only with PC.....and I'm OK with that!

I think it's a nice idea to have a website devoted to switching to Macs. I have three Macs and use them exclusively.

I don't think it's appropriate to say that OS X's protected memory is an advantage over Windows. Windows XP, 2000, NT have protected memory as well.

Some true advantages of OS X are that it is time tested (Unix core), that it manages multiple tasks better, and that now most major OS X apps are very well threaded. That's an advantage for dual processor and dual-core machines. That's NOT really true from what I understand with Windows apps right now. And again, OS X appears to be more efficient managing tasks.

Another advantage is that Apple actually cares about interface design. OS X doesn't have the insane interface of XP. For example, I counted TWICE as many "screens" or tabs (however you want to think of it) in XP Control Panels compared to OS X's System Preferences--for the same functionality.

The software available for OS X is generally excellent, especially the Apple stuff. Mac buyers also get lots of high-quality software included with new Macs that you don't get with new Windows machines.

I could go on and on but. . . you know. Some people (gamers) may not be satisfied without the Windows game library. Still, I play games on my Mac, and I have more than enough top-rated to keep me busy.
