    MAC is using an UNIX base...the special thing is just cosmatic. Many other OS are coming close to it already. Soon we will not see any diff between MAC / Unix / Microsoft OS.

    Nope... Mac OS X cannot be installed on a Windows or DIY machine... it's blocked. But you can install Windows XP on a Mac machine using Boot Camp.

    Well, it's not that straightforward installing a PC laptop with Mac OS X. He will have to hack the Mac OS X in order to install it and after that, there might be driver problems.

    Well, the thing about using an Apple for me is a total experience... hehe... it's how the hardware and software are designed to work together, like for eg. the iMac, beautiful design and great OS, why bother to buy a PC and hack so that you can use Mac OS X??

    Newayz, if there really is such a thing, then Mac is not special after all.
