I'm NOT looking to start a flame war so if that is your intent, feel free to opt out of this thread. I've been playing around with Ubuntu and I'm really impressed. I know that OSX is built on some form of unix...bsd I think....but I'm curious about the draw to Apple. I went to Comp USA today and visited the Apple website a couple of days ago and I don't get why Apple's are popular especially when Ubuntu is very similar but free. So Apple fans....what's the deal?? Why is Apple so good?? I really want to know because I'm thinking about purchasing a laptop and I could be tempted to go with an Apple but right now, the Windows based machines look awesome compared to the mac.
