I'm starting to consider a *gasp* Apple machine.

I've had some serious stability problems - like my machine failing to boot - with Linux across multiple years and machines to the point where I won't run it as a primary OS anymore.

Apple's OS is POSIX based, essentially a *nix core, with closed loop development and matching hardware that should in theory increase its stability.

And if not Apple, then I'm not sure. Windows 7 with Linux in a VM? (i've never had issues with Linux running in a VM)
Real programmers use butterflies
