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 ;)

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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.
