Talking Hey!!

hi there, found this forum whilst looking for GOOD computer forums, i see why google brought me here!! about me... hmmm: i run a Sony desktop, a Dell XPS and a mac powerbook 12" which i am currently selling to upgrade to a macbook... i have attatched a pic of my current setup... the reason i have 2 diff OS is i'coz i find that only then can you gain a perspective and judge which is better... i find both excellent!! have yet to try Linux
I am a pasionate Digital Photographer... and occasionally indulge in a little gaming lol... thanks for this awesome forum, i have had a good look around and fitst impressions are good!!!

Nice setup you have there. I have a regular XP system and a linux box (i havent used it much) and messing with more than one OS is very fun.

So...Welcome to TF and enjoy your stay!
