    Windows Server 2003 Vs. Mac OS X

    I am hoping to get a new pc to replace this one. Its a new Sony 3.0 GHz pc and i'm trying to decide if I should keep my current OS (Windows Server 2003) or if I should switch to Mac OS X on the new PC. Any and all comments welcome.

    I don't think you'll have much luck installing OS X on your Sony PC. It kinda requires a Mac.

    I once compared Operating Systems to Politics:

    Windows - Republican Party
    Unix - Democratic Party
    Mac - Green Party

    Don't throw your vote away... Though it really depends on what exactly you'll be using your computer for... Can you enlighten us, perhaps?

    Fascism would be more appropriate. Communism in an OS is like mandatory Napster, only more public file deletions.

    They are fundementally different. At its core. Windows is a pc and uses a different set of machine instructions than a mac does. It uses more than likely x86 architecture - that's intel's CPU.
    Mac uses AMD or motorolla - if i'm correct. each IC. does their calculations a bit different. That is perhaps its most basic. unless of course your considering cherry OS . I suppose that is an alternative.
    Many pc vendors design their computers to "work best with windows", though I've never verified if this was true or not.

    Well, I'm gonna use the OS for Graphic Design, Watching Anime, Programming/Game Design, 3D Modelling, and any other multimedia I forgot.

    Mac people say that Mac's graphic quality surpasses PC's. But then PC people say that with the same price to get a Mac, they could get a PC with same graphics quality.
    I'd say I have no clue. But I still have the impression that Mac is better for graphic designing and the like. So do your own research.

    Again. You can't install OS X on a PC, or Windows on a Mac. You'd have to buy one or the other.
