    Try CoolBook. Seriously the best 10 dollars for my MB Pro. And I've been happily Windows free fro years now (Fedora for the desktop, OSX for the laptop).

    Mac user here.

    2.93GHz Core i7 27" iMac, 2.4GHz MacBook and a 64GB 3G iPad.

    I do like the iPhone (sorry, but I do)... but hate hate hate AT&T's service where I live. Especially sucks where I work. Verizon, however, is fantastic here. So Verizon it is.

    Droid 1, Cyanogenmod 6.0 (non-themed) and overclocked to 1GHz.

    I have nothing but macs at home for all business stuff. I'm a professional musician/composer and Pro Tools (or Logic) on Mac is the industry standard. I would never get an iPhone, though, even though it would make media syncing easier. AT&T + closed market + locked units = no go. Plus, I am having so much fun tinkering with this Droid X it is ridiculous. Now if only I could move those digital copies of movies you get when you buy Blu-Rays I have in iTunes to my Droid...but alas, they are DRM protected for iTunes only and the Requiem guy hasn't found a way around iTunes 9.2.1...yet.

    While I don't yet have my Droid X, I have a 13" Macbook Pro and love it. The great graphics and the awesome mouse pad means no more Windows laptops for me - except the clunker at work.

    First Mac after being a Windows dude for 20+ years. (hey, I'm a little slow) Actually, I've been supporting MS servers since NT 3.1 was released and as long as MS exists - I'll have a job.

    You HAVE to get Linux... especially if you're an Android tinkerer. Linux experience has made playing with the Android system soo much easier.... plus no proprietary motorola drivers for sbf.

    I have a MacBook Pro 4,1 for work. I reformatted the drive and run Ubuntu 10.10 on it now - couldn't stand OSX. Does that still count?

    You can dual boot OSX and Linux using rEFIt, or you can install it using VirtualBox for a slightly easier way to try things out. If you want to go whole hog, here's some help for you:

    Ubuntu? Fedora all the way.

    Uh oh, another religious war! To be honest I'm more of an old-school Slackware fan but I've moved to Ubuntu because they have it deployed at work. Fedora's not bad, but I'd be too tempted to have to deal with Fedora for desktops and then CentOS for my servers. I guess not much worse than Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu server except both are from Canonical while Fedora is RedHat and CentOS is only a RedHet clone. So far I've been pleased with the Ubuntu community support (even if I'm not too keen on their fixed six-month upgrade cycle whether it's stable or not - luckily my servers will probably stay on 10.04 until the next LTS release).

    +1 to you, sir! Slackware is pretty impressive, but rather daunting from all the stories I've heard. Really all I have to say is that Linux (any distro) is better than the Great Satan Microsoft. And plus, with a little time it seems my desktop from any distro ends up almost identical.

    Mac user at home, same for the rest of my family. Need it for my editing with Final Cut. Droid X works great with Mac and DoubleTwist.

    Many Macs at home and MacBook Pro at work. I'm an IT Architect at a well known financial company and once we had the Mac option most of the architects switched right away. Same at Motorola, Oracle, Cisco, and other companies I have consulted with. I've been issued Dell's, HP's, and Thinkpads in years past. Lenovo does not make as good a Thinkpad as iBM did and Dells suck. The HP business laptops are good though. I run VMWare when I need to use Windoze, Linux or any other OS. Stable, fast, makes great use of processor and ram. The best Unix with the best interface and app selection. You can't go wrong. Since this is the Droid X forum I will emphasize that Macs are VERY popular at Motorola. So were iPhones but now most people are issued Droids and personal iPhones are frowned upon.

    Yes you can. Google it. Or you could use VirtualBox (free) and run it in a virtual partition.
