I have a mac fanatic in the family.. he still insists the mac doesn't need the usual parts one expects in a computer.. ( Harddrive, mobo, processor, etc. )because, well, "it's a mac" ( and he is an idiot , but hey, every family has at least one..) The guy blows glass for a living , not art glass the stuff used in labs, for a community college . Fortunately for him his wife is a lawyer.

Since we're <OT> on this, and this is just my opinion:
1. While this 'idiot' may not be computer literate, I will tell you unequivocally that blowing technical glass is one of the hardest f$%^& things I ever tried and doing this well requires a *lot* of skill.
2. The day that a linux box with open source code works as seamlessly and trouble-free as my intel mac (or my ppc mac), then linux will have truly arrived. You'll know that day has come when you no longer see any postings that start with "my printer doesn't work" or "my sound card stopped". I love linux, but I eagerly await the day when any linux box has the ease of use and the software, proprietary or otherwise, that does what my mac can do. Just my opinion!
