I've been a Mac guy for about four years and will never go back to PC unless I can no longer afford a macbook.

I'm a Mac but I don't fit those specs. Good thing they didn't interview me. I'd skew the results ;)

Basically the exact same situation as me.

Wife converted me to Mac, and I have slowly morphed over a few years. Now I am down to 85% Mac and 15% PC. I still find it essential to have both in the house though.

I've been a Mac user for about 10 years now (I'm 24.) The first time I saw an ipod, I was hooked. I have been using a Mac mini hooked up to my TV but just recently got a new MacBook Air. Totally sweet!!

I'm a PC man and proud of it! Have been forever 10 years now.I love being able to upgrade my CPU,GPU anytime I want by myself. I use my PC mostly for gaming so it suits me just fine.

If my wife didn't use Lightroom, I'd still be rocking Ubuntu.

So this post arises and I end up dropping my MacBook and mess up the graphics card. Now I have this feeling that if i post on a knife I'm going to drop it too and break the tip.

I hate mac vs. pc threads. they serve no purpose and just get some people in a twist.

Damn, that's a lot of Mac users!

I started with Windows in 94 and it's been my primary OS ever since. I used to have a few Macs around, as well as a few Linux distros, when I worked in IT and wanted the reference.

Started with IBM DOS and MS DOS, went to OS/2, NT4 and XP. Maintain the server and PCs at work. Built and maintain/ upgrade PCs at home. Not a fan of 'hands off' computers; like to know how it goes together and be able to troubleshoot/ swap parts/ upgrade as needed.

You know what? I have 3 different Zunes! And love all of them. Long live Zune!

Same here, though Vista nearly pushed me into the other camp. Windows 7 was a nice step forward.

What? No Com. 64 users! Hell gonna upgrade to a 128! Double the memory! (Bet that dated me! here's one better, first computer I ever used was an old Commodore 4032) now PC windows XP, I might catch up some day, but as soon as I do, there will still be something new!

I was wondering the same thing when I saw that...

Mac guy since 1986, there really wasn't that much of a PC option for graphic designers back in the early days.

I wanted a commodore 64, but my parents bought me a TI-99.

I've been a Mac user for about 25 years now. I sold a Mac when I was about 5. The guy was dumbfounded a child could teach him how to use the machine. He bought the whole package. Certainly they've changed over the years, but I still think they're just about as easy to use. I really enjoy not worrying about viruses too.

I'm operating system agnostic but I can't stand apple hardware. I just hate trackpads.

I'm a PC guy haha. Not that I dislike apple, just love being able to upgrade my hardware as and when I want to.

I am too tech savvy to be a Mac user. Running 95% windows and 5% ubunto. No virtualization.

Do own an iPad, but will immediately switch if theres a capable Windows tablet out there. iPad sucks to be a productive device

As a software engineer I work on both, Macs and PCs. I despise Apple for their policies, massive BS amounts they constantly spew and super snobish attitude...
Granted that Mac/ios development tools today are roughly what MS dev tools were 10 years ago, I really hate doing develpment for Macs.

PC. Began before Windows and the PC games ran on DOS. That's where I started and never switched.

Although my wife and daughter have Apple notebooks and my mom an Ipad.
