    In the expert opinion of someone who has been studying computer science for half a decade:

    Two buttons good, one button bad.

    As someone who's first code was written on an appleIIe and who has used everything from mini computers to UNIX, from DOS to windows XP, and from appleIIes to osX: I will see your two button good with a one button equals less hand cramps, and raise you a free IDE that complies C C++ objective C and Java with every machine.

    My first Apple had a cassette recorder for a storage device- the floppy drive for it hadn't come out yet. My first job was selling Apples and pcboard computers back in 1979.

    Hey, got a demo of a medical system writen using Windows Vista and .NET 3.0 combo last night.

    I'd swear this thing will support photoshop + over the internet. Talk about fully utilizing the hardware layer, yeow! You can use full streaming video for icons. Who cares about built in compiling; if I want to develop I'll have a professional IDE. Give me useless gaming-like glitz!

    Watch out oh people owning a machine with a single real advantage (aka: graphics).

    We have a Mac and have a two button mouse hooked up to it.

    With that being said, I happen to agree with you. We have both a Mac and PCs. I hardly ever use the Mac unless I am testing something on that platform. Although, my 4-year old daughter prefers the Mac (traitor). Embarrassingly, she even shows me how to do things on it.

    Mac all the way. I switched to Mac over a year and a half ago and the worst thing about the switch is the fact that I have to use a PC at work. Once you adjust to the simplicity of the Mac (and there is an adjustment) it is quite frustrating to work on a PC.

    BTW, the Mac has always has "two button" functionality, Apple was foolish to ship a one button mouse with their systems all those years but now ship a two button mighty mouse with their systems.

    Sorry to get off-topic, but I just noticed your name and location. Hi neighbor! We're from Dayton.
