Off-topic: I heard some things and have also seen the new Mac Pro on Apple's website. This thing looks pretty much like your typical trash bin on the streets. Also, This.

I think it looks like that to, but its specs are better than any of the existing desktop computers you can buy. HDs are really pci-express connected flash storage, two GPUs, estimated 128GB of ram, crazy awesome xeon processors, a single fan that pulls all the air out the top, the parts inside arranged in a triangle form, etc. It is essentially high end server specs in under a foot tall. It's going to look more like an all black NOS canister instead of a trash bin.

Go to the apple site and look at the previews for it.

As I was under ubuntu several years back I had a very eye-candy desktop but nowadays I don't want to waste time with that anymore as I never see my desktop anyway :)
But some of you guys have a for sure nifty desktops :)

I remember these icons... Is that... Windows 95? 98?

Either that, or a nostalgic mod of some sort. I like it.
...PC vs Mac is like AK47 vs M4A1...

Gotta be custom icons because he's into nostalgia.

His shortcut to soldat.exe is the MsDos logo.... ;) I remember how that logo was for .pif's and old .exe's back in older versions of Windows. He's especially into nostalgia for using the windows classic non-aero theme.

Interjection: RAID card

I don't know why you brought up RAID, but I can tell you that mobo raid usually is "fakeraid". By this I mean every drive in the RAID has a bit of software metadata on it (placed by the motherboard/shit raid cards) and it is up to the OS to handle configuring the RAID and making all of the drives show up as a unified block device. Problem with this is if the OS is misconfigured or if the cards die there will be issues in the boot process, performance is generally terrible, you can't move the drives between machines, and it's just a waste in general.

At work when we use hardware raid instead of Linux soft-raid (mdadm, google it), we use premium cards by LSI and Adaptec an 3Ware, where the resulting logical RAID volume (generally RAID 1, 5, 6, and 10) is transparently exposed as a single block device and the OS generally is unaware of the underlying implementation.

TLDR mobo raid sucks.... and I still don't know why you brought it up.

As for why I use Mac, it's because it is pretty, has native unix terminals, and I can pretend it's a linux workstation by installing software from source and via macports. Having tools like cc/make/git/svn/ssh/python/etc installed by default is pretty nice too. I don't use Mac because I'm a designer or a fag or a starbucks enthusiast or any of that other stereotypical bullshit.

Mac OS is a very damn powerful tool, if it is used properly, of course.

Haven't posted a linux screenshot in a while. My desktop is a mac and one of my laptops is windows and the netbook is debian.

The vertical res fucking sucks, but the eee makes up for it in terms of portability so whatever.
