theres been a huge wave of malware and virus (trojans) floating around the net infecting Macs.

I'll stick with Linux - it's free - can go from GUI to terminal - use for server / desktop / media box / router - oh did i mention FREE.

There is not a HUGE wave! and besides my boy is a computer genius I have no worries but he is way better with PC

also I have insurance Toni so not worried it is a quality product not to much goes wrong with macs if properly cared for

limited gaming - blech.

limited analysis applications - blech

Open office for powerpoint and excel sucks for what I need to do, whatever I create in powerpoint or excel doesn't translate well with users who use MS Office for whatever reason

Video editing - too limited in application selection, which means the tools that are available for linux are a chore and cubersome.

ok ok .. maybe i over exatrated with the HUGE ... but recently there's been cases of mac's being infected.

i'm saying all this is because of the apple fan boys ~ crying that mac's can't get virus--blah blah blah

I don't dislike linux. As a simple internet computer it is perfectly fine.
