OK! Mac is a proprietary (and very EXPEN$IVE) macihne architecture (currently using a variant of Free BSD & like Linux, a Unix clone) while Linux is an open source, incredibly heavy duty, versatile and free (financially, legally and ethically) operating system. Comparing the two, is like comparing a chrome toilet bowl, to a huge plumbing shop, in which every item is free. NEWS: A GUI is not an OS. Those still paying for ass wipe, needn't look down their noses at Linux users.
