I can across this article tonight once again proving what we already know.
The Article (http://www.linuxinsider.com/story/36964.html)
One thing i didn't know was that the US ARMY are also using Xserves, at least they made one smart move.

The plural of Mac does not have an apostrophe, and "PC's" is disputed.

Sorry, but a pedant is always a pedant.

Maybe they got confused with IBM Xservers.

wasn't this a news post not too long ago. I bet if you search through the news forum you'll find the slightly more credible article about it... if you care

I think it was posted as a headline

He lost me right around the point where he started to drag the RISC vs CISC debate into the conversation (which hasn't been a valid argument since the Pentium Pro, where CISC and RISC got real blurry).

Also, as someone else said in the article, not everyone uses computers for multimedia purposes, either. All this article "proved" is that this guy is just as fanatical as that other lunatic who raved on about the iMac G5 being so crappy because its monitor was such an integral part of the entire computer.

I love Macs as much as the next guy, but I'm not so blind as to consider them to be the perfect computer, suitable for each and every task that one could possibly do on a computer. Otherwise, I still wouldn't be using Linux, OSX, and Windows on a day to day basis - I'd stick with the Mac, and sell off the rest of my machines.
