My boss is a mac addict, I mean if they made iunderpants he would buy them and put them on over his trousers.
I myself love the mac interface, love how well they are made and ergonomic they are but hate (I mean really HATE) the stupid price!
I setup a laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 compiz and a few other tricks that I have picked up over the years and passed it over to him and although he loves his mac he did have to admit that Ubuntu 10.10 / compiz was pretty bloody amazing and apart from the backup thing apple has (is it time machine?) the linux laptop would do all that the apple would at less than half the price, (I can do full backups pretty easy but none with the fancy GUI) and was a better spec overall with a proper nVidia GPU and a core i5 CPU 4GB RAM and a 400GB SATA HDD. Wine plays games fine and virtuabox and XP make things that you can't do on Linux (not much!) possible.
The config was really easy but I do setup Linux boxes quite often via the command line (although they are normally RH boxes so the command line is differnt)
I just don't get why people pay so much for apple
