That's the problem. I'd rather spend my time making music than maintaining my machine. That is why I will never go back.
I agree but now you have multiple installations of O's, virtual machines, etc so just put one for Music Production one for your www based system etc, i really want to see a ABLETON LIVE thin aplication that you can launch on every system ( see thin app from VMware ) that is juicy just having a hard drive with your software and project, carry nothing else and justplug.

I think cloud computing will be the norm in a few years.

I use Pro-Tools and Live on both platforms.

On a Mac it works great.

On a PC it works great.

I don't care if it's PC or MAC. Seriously.

The amount of stuff you can do on PC compared to Mac is just overwhelming. Mac comfort factor derives from the reliability that is a direct result of not supporting 80% of what PC's support. If you can work within the limitations of a Mac (e.g. just Ableton) then a Mac would be better for you. If you want to be able to run absolutely anything, get a PC but be ready to support the problems caused by the massive versatility of the machine.
