I'm not a fan for either Mac or Win7, although I have been using Windows 7 for a long time. I get tired of Antivirus Program on Windows, so I usually use Mac for work, and use Windows for entertainment (game, video..) because Windows is goos at these

Not a dual booter (well I have WinXP and Parallels on my MacBook.

I use OS X for most everything. My desktop, used every few days, is Win7 -- a huge improvement over WinXP IMHO; desktop is used for archiving and for ripping-burning CDs and DVDs due to its high speed dual burners.


Netbook: Mini 10v, BIOS A05, OS X 10.6.4, 2 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, BT

Snow Leopard more, probably because that is the default of my dual-boot with Windows 7, and I put it to sleep more often than shutting down.

Kinda off topic but, I dual boot with XP & Win 7 and recently I cut the XP partition down to 50gb, (started with 200gb) and gave the 150gb to Win 7, I guess eventually I will wipe out the XP partition and maybe try some form of linux...still undecided but I kept XP until I felt really safe with Win 7 and so far so good so maybe its time to say good bye to XP...just my 0.02..
