also mac os is just a variant of linux and i got that on my pc
No, it's not. Mac OS X is darwin, an open-source unix-like kernel for the PPC architecture, developed by Apple, plus Apple's own graphical server. You can run (GNU) Linux in PPC, though.

By the way, I wonder why are people always thinking "Windows OR Linux?" and "pc OR Mac?"... why not have best from both worlds and just have both?
I have a Windows PC as primary workstation, and a second pc in the room next door which runs Linux and is remotely accessable (it's more like a server than a workstation). This way I can perfectly use advantages of both OSes.
That's for wimps, man.
