Me too, never had problems with my athlon-4 VIA-based motherboard.

I'm sitting here from a $1000 PC... I wanted the MacPro, but the apple store was basically telling me they are too unstable and have had far too many returns to sell them.

Oh well.

I can run my 10.6.2 in VMWare for glorious GCC 4.0/4.2 and I can run my VMWare ESX for work stuff.. As I mostly wanted a home lab that didn't take up all that much space.

Anyone know what is wrong with the new MacPro's?

Interesting topic from ten years ago. :)

I bumped it because of a forum bug associated with posts being deleted from posts containing polls. But feel free to answer the question 2014-style. :)
