    Windows does not make as efficient use of system resources as Linux. which makes it slow.

    But in any case, cloud-based (shared resource) computing will eventually take over, and the PC will die.

    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    St. Peter needs to use his drag and drop feature to add him to the invitees list.

    He will "accidentally" push the Delete button.

I'm not doing it to impress you. I'm clearing up a stereotype.
    Suggesting Apple fans are passionate fans of hi-tech is a contradiction, because part of true hi-tech is open environments and interoperability, which Apple products sorely lack.

    Apple fans are just naive users who are unaware of the whole market because of jobs' reality distortion field.

    And predictably, his cult bought it.

    Let's see here. MS-DOS or Macintosh? Which was more hi-tech? Well, the user certainly had to be more hi-tech to use DOS, but the technology of the Mac meant one could actually use the computer.

    Windows (the shell for MS-DOS) versus Mac? Which is more hi-tech? Since Microsoft had to "borrow" ideas from the Mac to create Windows, it is obvious that the Mac was more hi-tech.

    Some people spew their hatred for the Macs and Jobs here, but Macs are still a great innovative product.

    When Linux came out, it was more advanced than the MSDOS/Win95 and MacOSs of the time. In fact, MacOS at the time still lacked pre-emptive multitasking--a fundamental component of any modern OS--when Linux came out.

    Furthermore, Commodore's AmigaOS came out in the late 80s, had pre-emptive multitasking, and was more advanced than MacOS or Windows at the time.

    No Mac that ever came out was the most technologically superior desktop OS at the time it was released, period.

    The fact that you thought it was is just more evidence of the power of jobs' reality distortion field.
