I'm posting this from my iMac.
It is a fantastic machine.

While I'm not a fan of Macs myself I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it. One of my favourite things in life is getting a new computer and using it for the first time (which is quite sad when you think about it).

I didn't know what to make of it at first. When I started it up, there was this little white light glowing, and then it just jumps into this symphony of music, welcoming me to my Apple computer.

I would switch to a mac but I would spend all my time in either firefox or a terminal windows, I may as well save a couple thousand and run Linux.

You could buy a mini for $500, or you could do what I did and buy refurb for much less than retail. So far, this iMac has repeatedly impressed me, primarily with it's response times. It is FAST.

XP on my machine is fast as well. Disabling unneeded services did it.

The Mac I have here is fast now, too. It's a G4 Mini. I upgraded the harddrive, put Ubuntu on a seperate partition, and disabled the spotlight search.

And 10.4 did the unprecedented: I could actually connect to a Windows share! I did it first on Ubuntu, though. 10.3 would never connect, it would always hang.
