    Any person on here with a Mac will probably have Windows installed on it anyways. I have a Mac and have the option at start-up whether I want Windows XP or Mac OSX. But, unless you are trying to use someone's special program from BHW or a custom one, you can usually find Mac software that will do the same job.

    I've made BH money and it would not have mattered what type of computer I had; however, it may be different for those doing youtube marketing or something who need those special programs. Overall, most people with a Mac will have both anyways - It just makes sense.

    I'm on a mac but my PC runs programs. I also code on there as well. We need more Mac coders for programs

    I run only mac. I love Windows, but I don't need it for what I'm doing right now.

    Also, I'm surprised no Windows Fanboys have complained about this thread.

    Got a Mac Pro tower - I just run Parallels and am happily running Micro Niche Finder, Book Marking Demon, Power Article Rewriter on that side of things.

    On the Mac side I haven't bothered with virus scanning software in YEARS.

    Also, don't count mac out for Blackhatsoftware. I use Agent Craig (very useful for Craigslist) and iSale (very useful for ebay) very often. Mac software is brilliant

    I've been using mac or the past 15 years although I also have 2 PC's because all the good money making programs are made for PC. You can use parallels to run both mac and pc applications at the same time. Unfortunately mac software is limited in the internet marketing arena.

    i use linux, and i make quite a lot of $$$$$$$$$$ without windows. thats cos i have an option to run windows apps on linux with a package called Wine - Windows emulator.

    The advantages of Linux are that I have never faced a crash or a virus attack and it is rock stable, and no blue screens of death

    macs rule and pcs drool. i make a lot of money and rarely use my pcs. it makes me feel dirty when i do.

    there are always probs with pcs, nothing really works out the box. you gotta delete this, change this, reinstall this, restart, restart, restart. freak out cuz you have a virus, restart about another 10 times. pfft. macs, they just work. even my slowest mac is better than my PCs even tho my pcs should be faster. its sad really. and i went to school for network admin, for my ccna and ccnp, net+, msce, amongst other things, so not like i dont have experience on a pc.

    if they have it for the pc, you can get it/make it for the mac. simple. oh and btw, i dont have softwindows or virtual pc. i would never violate my macs like that.

    my set up....

    my mac corner. 2 macbook 2.4 ghz, use them for sites and mass mailing. also g4 1.25 ghz, i use that for personal mail and storage, chatting and any other crap i dont want on my babies

    on the left against the other wall, averatec and another g4
