    Why do people hate Mac OS so much?

    I asked one of my friends (They all love windows, and hate mac with a passion...)

    My first friend, he loves Linux, because its UNIX based... i dont why he loves UNIX that much)

    I dont have a mac, so im not really sure... you can use the terminal in any way you want, like you would in other systems, right?

    I want to prove him wrong.

    (Also, im going to ask more of my friends why they macs...

    (Kinda Off-Topic: Lol, i have a PC tech class, and we have to do chapters for a book that we mac ourselves, everyone has a chapter, and then the teacher uses it next year to teach next years class. Well, everyone gets normal chapters, like RAM, and Windows XP and stuff like that... I chose to do Mac OS, which no one likes, just to piss them off.... lol.)

    Also, do you have friends that hate Macs?

    Wow, that was a fast... my friend just got pwned...

    So, theres another question in my thread...

    Is the Terminal made so that you cant mess your computer up? Like can you type in any command you want?

    Terminal is used for a lot of things. Development, Repair, etc. It can seriously mess up your computer if you screw things up. Its the same as with Linux, BSD, Unix, etc. Even Windows' Command Line thingy can mess it up.

    There are no restrictions, assuming you didn't boot up in Safe Mode, and have administrator privileges (which is the same as in Linux). So yeah, you could pull out a sudo rm -Rf / whenever you want. In fact, Fink and MacPorts (two independent projects) both let you install Linux/UNIX command line programs on your Mac for FREE. Just like apt-get works.
