I use a Intel-based Mac with Bootcamp, mac for artistic, and Windows Xp for my internets and gaming. I dont like Mac as much because its mostly non-manual, and i prefer to fix stuff manually. Plus, SWF files run faster on XP than on Mac for me, and when a page takes forever to load on mac, i can fix it on PC.
I HATE fixing things manually. Did it for the 6 years that I used windows.
Yeah, Adobe's fault once again. The Flash plugin for OS X is awful. Any Intel Mac will be fast enough that it doesn't really matter, anyways, but still.
Too many file based stuff that I'd miss if I were using Windows again. Can't live without ExposÃ©, transferring files no fuss between computers with bonjour, or drag and drop everywhere. Might just be cause I'm used to the system, but any time I use Windows I try to do something that works in OS X (spring-loaded folders, some drag and drop stuff) and the system spazzes out on me.
The Mac Pro's current graphics cards options SUCK, however. With Snow Leopard riding so heavily on the GPUs for EVERYTHING (OpenCL), I'm guessing that Apple's going to have to start fixing that once and for all.
And yeah, the idea behind Snow Leopard is incredible.
