    are most people in here Macintosh users or windows users? i am curious if apple managed to reach people with their iPAD device outside of the mac community. iOS does not count as a mac user. i am just trying to see how many windows users are in this forum and how well this device is adopted by people who are not familiar with macs.

    You forgot one... Linux!

    I only use Windows because my work has some proprietary software, but for the most part I use OpenSUSE Linux (dual boot with Vista) and Ubuntu on another PC and yet another PC with SCO Open Desktop UNIX somewhere in the house that has not been used in ages. Old computers are good for something!

    The other reason I use Windows? To run iTunes since there is no Linux/UNIX equivalent to sync the iPod and iPad.

    A both option would have been cool. I alternate for supreme domination over the earth.

    I tend to fall in line with what 1991-C4 posted. I am not married to any one operating system and I choose different ones for different systems. My desktop runs Windows 7, mainly to take full advantage of the hardware and to get my gaming fix in. I also have computers running Windows Home Server, Ubuntu, Vista 64, XP and an old laptop with Mandrake (not even around anymore I think). The only system I have never had a need for is OSX. I don't have a thing against it, but it doesn't fit any need that I have (doesn't keep me from wanting one to play with though). So, by majority of systems I went Windows ... lol.

    I have been a windows user and still have to use it at work. This is my first Mac. I must say I am liking the Mac over windows. Runs faster in my opinion.

    Both here and occasionally slackware.
    Find myself leaning more to the mac over time.
