Opinions?

Opinions? (1) you're opening a can of worms ;-) (2) any opinions based on
the present Mac OS are definitely going to be rendered worthless when the
new Mac OSX is released in the very near future (scheduled release is
February). The universal appraisal of OSX appears to be that it is a vast
and genuine improvement over the old OS, and it is *so* close to arriving
that I suspect anyone hovering on the edge of choosing Mac vs PC really
ought to wait to see.
