No actually...

I prefer AmigaOS, for a great many reasons. However, AmigaOS doesn't have memory protection, so one bad app can take down the whole OS. Not very ideal. It does have some great things I miss too, like holding down shift while hitting backspace will erase everything you typed in that cmd line. Shift and one of the arrow keys will take you all the way in that direction, etc. There are more too...

For me, Windows is probably the best I can get for what I want overall. It's missing some features I wish it had, has some "features" I absolutely hate (like blocking windows, or windows that can't be resized. Stupid!) Overall it's got the best selection of games, apps, etc that I want to use, and also it's hard to beat the price for PC hardware over Mac or Amiga.

So I'm stuck with what I've got.

Furthermore, I was making a comment about linux, not MacOS. I used the example of Win7, but for the iPad I would rather have the OS that is on it over linux. I really don't see how linux would make it better, unless it was a complete distro done for just the iPhone and iPad. Is there one?

Is it iLinux?

I didn't mind the video.

Ultimately I am interested in the future of the iPad. It seems to be a "solution" looking for a "problem". I really wonder if it is going to take off or not...

iPad Price Drops already?... I think that says a lot about Apple's confidence in the product after its unveiling and reception (Read: It's pointless).

that was really the only thing missing from the iPad.. I definitely won't be getting one but seriously.. releasing something like that without a camera would be a pretty dumb move.

no.. it wasn't but neither was the ipod.. people put linux on their ipods all the time... putting linux or windows since we all seem to hate everything except that here.. on the ipad would make a pretty cool touch screen laptop where you can do other things besides web browse and look at picture... you could type on it and save your work.. use wire shark? other things you can only do on a laptop... it would also then have a CLI with linux or windows
