Re: [Avid-L2] Re: New Mac Pro

Windows and Mac OS becoming more alike? I want what you're smoking!
Managing a PC and getting one optimized to do anything productive is a lot
more work and a ton more trouble than it is worth. Mac OS and Mac OS Server
are so much more elegant and less kludgey than anything Windows has ever
made. If forced to leave Mac OS, I'd go to Linux before Windows.
