    You always have such a colorful way of explaining things.

    I really like my Mac. My only complaint about it is that the quilting graphics software that I'd like to use to help me design quilts is not Mac compatible.

    I work with a Windows system at the office but I like my Mac at home much better.

    Re: Mac vs. PC: The Ultimate Debate

    I use a PC (and let's be honest, this is about operating systems, not about computers so the question is misleading) and hate Macs with a passion. I've used both, Macs just don't do what I need to do, period, and the egotistic attitude of both the company and the users is idiotic. If your damn computers are so great, why do you have such a crappy market share?

    That's not to say I love Windows either, it's got massive problems too, but it's got the most software that I need running under it. I'd much rather be running Linux but, like Mac, it doesn't support a lot of the software I have to run.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    See I'm on the opposite end being a photographer/artist. Graphics just seem to work better and I can print out at 32 bit.

    We've got both at work and I have both at home.

    At work, our photography and graphic design dept are Mac only whereas the journalism people and the 3D animation people only use PC, our network is on Linux servers but most people's desk machines are PCs.

    The games software design people have to use both OS's - but we are slowly shifting to Mac only as you can run Windoze on a Mac as well as OSX.

    Macs suck. They are overpriced and don't run a lot of stuff I need to run and are harder to interface with equipment than PCs are. Theorists use Macs, experimentalists use PCs.

    Maybe its like a height inferiority complex. The little midget who gets in fights and acts tough because he is a little pipsqueak and deep down inside wishes he was a tall person. Or maybe they are like the guy with a little dick who buys a sports car or Hummer. The huge vast majority of people use windows while a tiny almost insignificant part of the population uses mac,linux or some other lesser known OS and to get the stuff that works for windows you need some sort windows emulator.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Mac vs. PC: The Ultimate Debate

    I'm a PC because of several reasons.

    1. I am used to them
    2. The customization is much better
    3. I am a gamer
    4. PCs are immensely cheaper.

    I have grown up with PCs, I am used to them. When I use Apple Macs they seem like too much effort to get to something easier. I don't know, maybe that's just my bias.

    The customization on a PC rocks, no question.

    Comp-gamers have a huge disadvantage when it comes to Apple, since gaming franchises perform swimmingly on the PC and are sometimes ungettable on a Mac.

    These days it seems like you have to have a certain type of person to have a Mac, like an artist or graphic designer. PCs can do that too, but they are flexible enough to be "fun" computers as well as very professional tools.

    From a pure user perspective, each operating system has various advantages and drawbacks. Windows supports the most software and is the only platform for most games. Macs are built with excellent user interfaces and media development platforms. Linux has the most stable platform and the most options for a knowledgeable user.

    Its mostly about what is best for a particular user, not some stupid pissing contest about what is "better". Windows may have the inferior technical platform, but its commanding market share make it useful. Apple may be overpriced but it gives it users the experience they want. Linux lacks crucial software and driver support, but has the lowest cost and most solid backend.
