Dave -

Well said! And I must agree for the most part. Every time I hear a story like this, I feel compelled to hug my Mac. It is (arguably) not as stable as NT, but I'd rather reboot every few days rather than be forced to do a single system reinstall of NT.

The only OS that feels as easy or easier to install is the BeOS. Even LinuxPPC feels a bit more polished than NT (then again, saying 'Linux' could mean anything, depending on distribution).

There are responses to this message:
