Yeah, it's cheaper than Windows.. unless you know what OEM means...

Haha

Personally though, I would rather use a free unix based OS that has a GUI over one that costs money.

It's not any cheaper than Windows!  XP Home starts at $100, pro you can get for $120-$200.  OSX is $130.  That's not what I'd call "much cheaper..."  Plus, virtually the only place to find OSX is Apple.com--so good luck finding sweet deals and sales.

Hrm... I'd agree on every point, but it's not very nice to challenge someone's math skills like that.

Just because you're a math guru, doesn't mean the other person here is! (Oh, and I'm not either). And the fact I haven't challenged his/her English, just proves how much better I am than you! ;D

Ok.. I'll shut up now!

P.S. I love sarcasm.
