It’s not so much a question of which operating system or hardware I prefer; the actual monitor, keyboard, and mouse that I use for either are mostly interchangeable and therefore not of real consequence.
The question now is: what do I want to accomplish in this session?
As to surfing the ‘net, I like using Internet Explorer by Microsoft and it would seem almost sacriligious to put IE on a Mac. I haven’t tried the new Safari version 4 (still in beta as of this writing) but that may change my surfing preferences … we’ll see.
Most of my design applications are PC based, so graphics are done on the PC. I’m still investigating text editors for the Mac, and will reconsider XHTML, CSS, and PHP coding once I find an editor I like for the Mac.
XCode development is obviously done on the Mac and quite honestly, as I’m still learning my way around an Apple branded computer, I am still finding the Apple SDK package to be quite easy to work with and much more intuitive than some PC packages I have used.
PC or Mac? I can’t decide, can you?
