    I don't know when Windows 2k came out (probably around the year 2000 ), but OS X Server was first announced in January 1999, so I don't think there was much lag time between the two

    Well, out of the mouth of another Mac user, I have to say I find the opposite to be true (at least for me) especially with Panther coming out in a few weeks. To each his own though

    Windows in my experience is much more easier to use. I have used OSX and OS9 ... 9 is just a waste. 9 Crashes when doing normal tasks. Although X is much more stable my personal liking will continue to put XP as the better software. This arguement will always end at that. Mac Guys are Mac Guys and Windows Guys are Windows Guys and somtimes they cross over just to have one company make stupid commercial in a all white background... hmm

    Well when you start laying the blame on Windows so hard (saying it crashes every day, which I highly doubt, even if you have done something to make it unstable), you've got to expect others to call you on it.

    Many would argue 2000 is even more stable than XP.

    hehe, I've had Windows 2000 since it came out, and even at sporadic times when it tends to crash once or twice a week (mostly brought about by the applications rather than the OS itself), I've never had it crash daily ... something is seriously wrong with your machine if it does

    On the other hand, the OS9 I was using at work crashed about 4-5 times a day regardless of how much I tweaked and fixed it... I haven't used OSX but my experience with OS9 pretty much intimidated me
    In terms of stability; OS 9 is to Windows98 as OS X is to Windows2k/XP

    Not only that, but NT5 is rock solid.

    Seriously, as a vBulletin customer, I feel somewhat slighted by the posts of cavalier bias made by the official developers of this software.

    At work yesterday, I was playing around with the smiley menu and other sweet interface enhancements in 3.0b7 only to find that they do not work fully on my Mac at home. My three-year old G3 PowerBook crashes maybe once every two months. My PC at work (of comparable age) running Windows 2000, crashes daily. Talk about a loss of productivity.

    I run three different forum packages on sites I manage. At least one of the other leading packages has a Mac-friendly Web site, Mac OS X screenshots of its software, and is happy to support this segment of their community. I'm beginning to feel unwelcome here.
    If you've got a Windows 2000 machine crashing daily, more likely it's not Windows' fault - it's your own. I ran Windows 2000 Server with a ~43 day uptime on a 350 MHz 128 MB SDRAM machine. Only rebooted for Windows Update.

    Safari's stupid. They based on on the Kornqueror rendering engine when they could've based on on Mozilla (and thus, they could've had WYSIWYG).
