As it stands now alfa users are 3 times more likely to be mac users than windows users. (12/4 on forum vs 9/1 in reality)

Re: What Computer Operating system do you use?

The reason I asked is that Craig at Mango's (dunno why we got on the subject, bit sad I know) had a theory that Alfa owners tended to be more creative and lots of his customers had macs. I was just curious as I have a mac & and an Alfa (or two) as to how his theory stood up.

It's not easy to change when you get used to something and you almost depend on it.
But i made a solid effort to 'make the switch' and i don't regret it for a second. You
can dual boot with other OSs or use virtual machines etc. It's fantastic

I got as far as downloading a version - the one you can boot from CD-ROM - but that's all

Yep that's what i did as well now all you have to do is: burn the .iso to a CD/dvd and boot from it. And then you can play with linux without installing it. You should try it
