HardOCP Spends 30 Days With MacOSX

hexix Re:Guy is full of it ... (708 comments)

Yeah, it was this point that made me realize the guy is just looking for shit to complain about. Mac OS X has a lot of cross-pollination with Linux software due to it being Unix based. Many open source projects that use to be for Linux & BSD have had someone come along and port them to OS X.

I've really noticed the exact opposite. When I'm on Windows I struggle to find software that does a small simple job similar to software I've used on Linux and Mac OS X. Almost everything I find in the Windows world costs money. I think the HardOCP types don't realize this because they probably pirate all their software anyway.
