Between Mac OS X and Windows XP, which one will you get in the future?

Since most people have PCs, they will install Windows XP.

However, if Mac OS X was licensed to run on Intel hardware and such, people WOULD use Mac OS X.

Petition to get OS X on intel crap.  Smile

Well I'm temporarily running a pirated version of XP right now. I like some of the features but might switch back to Windows ME because it still seems a little wierd right now. I've always been a few steps behind when it comes to operating systems. Win95 - Win98 - Win98SE - WinME - WinXP. All of my upgrades were against my will. I just got ME at the beginning of the summer.

XP is on my new Athlon system I just built and ME is still on my good ol' K-6 233 machine which isn't running right now because I had to cannibalize some parts from it while some were still being shipped for the new one.

Well... people will get the new system for the hardware they already own.  Wink/being sarcastic

But it appears that OS X has a much higher attraction for Mac users than Win XP has for PC users. OS X doesn´t force new restrictions on the users the way XP does. And OS X actually looks classy...  Wink/being sarcastic
