    Why do you hate doing that? Wouldn't it be funny if they actually fell for it and you got to see their reaction?

    I have used Mac OS X, and it sucked. So don't give me "oh you mean mac os 9 yeah thats old shiznit" bull**** because OS X is hardly better. I'd say Vista is a little better than that, so...
    given XP=1000, and higher numbers are better than lower, then
    XP > Vista + 500 > Mac OS X > any other Mac OS.
    People say Vista is pretty. I think XP silver is prettier.
    I can't think of a signature right now.
    Go drink some beer instead.

    Mac OS 9 was great, and was the most stable version of Mac I've ever used.
    Mac (on x86 Intel) isn't so bad. They can LEGALLY and natively run XP or ****ty Vista. Leopard is just as bad as Vista, and anyone who says differently must be a big fan of one or the other.

    I can't believe neither Apple nor Microsoft went with better reverse compatibility. They could've ****ed up the competition all-together.

    Overall, as Mad said: "Linux > Everything else thats Unix based."

    Actually, Leopard has been very stable for me. I use my Macbook everyday for a couple hours at the least, and I haven't had any crashes/problems.
    But I hate Vista. XP ftw
    The only thing I don't like about Linux is recording on it, so I'm forced to used Windows. Plus FLStudio is Windows only, and that's the main program I use to record.

    I like Linux (specifically Ubuntu) but Windows is just more widely supported.

    You guys ever tries using WINE to run some of the Windows exclusive programs?

    You know, I've always meant to, but never used my Linux installations long enough. I would usually install, use it until I wanted to record, then just boot back to my Windows partition and just never really go back. I've done this countless times...
    I guess I should be lazy and see if I can use FLStudio in WINE. Just a question, if I was using FLStudio in WINE, would it be able to take full advantage of my ASIO sound card?

    Yes.

    It's slow and not very well supported.

    Maybe if you have the audio drivers which FL uses with you sound card installed in your WINE bottle. I've tried a few drivers in WINE, and they don't work too well, but you should give it a try.

    FYI XP freeks, XP has problems too

    I have the resources to run it fine, and enjoy the prettiness.

    Yeah, lets see what you say when resource requirements go up in half a year.

    XP, when configured to a minimum, is far less issuable than Vista; which at the minimum requirements is still a nagging bitch.

    We moved out of the Stone Age quite some time ago. If you still don't have a computer that can support Vista, get out of your cave.

    Looks more like we've moved out of the antiquity. If you still don't have a computer that can support Vista, you will be forced/persuaded to get one anyway.
