There are many pros and cons to both Operating Systems. From what I understand, there are many more pros to Mac OSX than there are to Linux, though. With the current testing of Mac OSX on intel chips, it gives me reason to hold off on full move to linux until there is some news on OSX. From what I’ve heard, you can run programs built for Windows XP within OSX easily. It’s a little harder in Linux. I’ve figured out how to get things to run on Linux, it’s just a little harder, because something different is slowing me down every time I try something new. I’m just really looking forward to the day that I am not tied down to Microsoft. I’m still working on the Linux installation, I’m just a little tired.
