    Do you miss Windows?

    I'm seriously contemplating buying a Mac of some sort (maybe a Mac Mini or iMac). For those of you who have moved from Windows to the Apple world, do you miss Windows and are you more productive using Apple operating systems?

    It all depends what you plan to use it for, what you're coming from and if you have any specific windows software.

    Everyone has different preferences, I use both daily but wouldn't miss much if I had to fully switch.

    Re: Do you miss Windows?

    I used Macs a lot at previous workplaces,and TBH I tend to prefer Windows more although OS X for a long time was shinier. Also,regarding productivity I would say it depends on the applications you use,and how organised your are.

    Re: Do you miss Windows?

    I'm a web developer, After a long time using Windows and then Linux - I prefer OS X. It gives the best of both worlds.

    What I don't like is the limited choice of expensive hardware. I have a latest generation Mac Mini as I didn't want the glossy screen of the iMac, but it's just too slow and get's noisy at the smallest task.

    I'm seriously considering building a hackintosh soon, rather than getting the new mac mini if/when it's launched shortly.
