No; it's fluxbox. I don't care about WMs like lxde/xfce.

First question why do you need Mac? Just to have Apple name on it?

I understand Linux(looots of customization) but Mac....
I had Mac PC in work when I was doing typography and posters and I have no Idea why you want to jump from Windows/Linux to Mac.
Just to saying: "I have Mac"?

I would rather spend free money for new parts for PC or put it in my car....

I don't want a Mac. All I want is Mac OS X. That's why I also mentioned Hackintosh.

I can understand if all you use a computer for is porn and Facebook, but as a unix software developer/sysadmin my options are mac or Linux. I used Linux on the desktop/laptop for easily 6 years and then found mac. Macs are more reliable than Linux in terms of the desktop (no xorg breaking and fucking with kernels/nvidia drivers) and they offer more functionality and can run paid-for programs natively (like ms office/outlook/adobe/etc) while still providing unix shells and ability to compile linux software from source and so on.

That, and there's no debate on whether apple makes good laptops. My new macbook air as well as my macbook pro from work both beat the hell out of my aging Dell Latitude e3600 from 2009 which was a very very good computer in its day. They're solid metal, flash storage, and have gorgeous displays.


"Mac" comprises two entities: the Unix derived operating system and the hardware custom made for it. Foxxy is saying that he wants to use the OS and build a PC that works with it, known as a hackintosh. I would have done the same years ago but from what I understand, building a hackintosh is risky as upgrades can brick it.

Sorry, I just get heated over topics like this. Sometimes I just have uncontrollable outbursts of verbal rage. Same goes for people advocating Windows over Linux without giving reasons and so on. It's mostly all in good fun though. I redacted some of the edginess from my post.

I have iPad that is awesome

You should explain why you thought people buy macs just to get the apple logo on them, as if they have no other redeeming qualities.

iPad and mac are different, iPad is for browsing internet(dont use to much apps on it), and Mac is... normal hardware PC with different system that compared to Windows is a bit... limited. When I used it in work I had only few graphic programs but when I tried to "play a bit with it" it was just like ride in golfcard compared to Land Rover(for me).
 
I have too much program that I use and I like to modify my system so I don't see the point of leaving all my apps and habits just to have new OS. And that why I dont understand some people that leave all their stuff and habits just to have new system if old one work.

Just that. nothing more.

Work computer. Running Linux Mint 16 with two rotated 1920x1200 monitors. Finding wallpapers with a 5/4 ratio is a real bitch though.

Nah it's that I was about to attach it then realized it was 5MB so I took a sec to convert to jpeg.



I haven't used Windows or Linux on the desktop in months at this point. Having macs everywhere is great. No need to bounce between completely different uses of alt+command+control all the time.
