    Re: Mac vs. PC: The Ultimate Debate

    I have very recently moved to a Mac. I changed sides after a very bad experience with a brand new Vista laptop. Initially Vista was a lot better after SP1, but then after a series of problems I was consistently getting the blue circle of death. Weirdly though, my notebook would book up in safe mode.

    But considering that I am a student, (I can not afford) I could no longer deal with this kind of unreliability. So I bought a Mac.

    So far I've enjoyed the reliability of the Mac, but I do miss Windows. Especially since I can't play the same range of games on a mac. To me a Mac is like a really reliable Enoch.......

    Will I ever go back to PC? Absolutely, I love gaming to much. But after the issues with Vista/PC, I would only return to PC, when Microsoft produces an operating system that offers customers true reliability and innovation.

    In the mean time I will enjoy my very reliable digital Enoch.

    I'm a PC user who also has Ubuntu installed on another partition, just to play around w/ Compiz. I prefer PC's because I'm a gamer, and I build my own. What would cost over 2 grand I can put together for under $800 and can easily upgrade.

    I don't prefer Windows over OSX, although this Windows 7 RC is pretty impressive. I generally run a barebones versions of XP called MicroXP (under 100mb.) IMO OSX is much more elegant than windows, but I prefer the customizability of Linux.

    Also I'm an accountant and there isn't any decent accounting software for Macs.

    PC's no doubt rule. I mean Macs don't even compare to the customization that a pc has.

    As far as Windows goes, I'd rather have a version of Linux.

    Mac's = overpriced novelty
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Mac vs. PC: The Ultimate Debate

    It's the Mac users that created this debate anyway with their superior attitude. Just look at the commercials. Whether or not Mac or PC are useful depends on what you want to use them for. Media applications are better on Mac (such as photo and video editing), PC is much better for games and high powered applications. I found Macs too expensive in the long run... repairing them and upgrading is usually difficult and you need to buy a whole new computer. PC is more versatile in this department.

    I like Linux but it's not as user friendly for someone like me who is not techno savvy on the rar installation side. It also doesn't have some of the software I need for the hardware on my laptop, and I won't trade operating systems only to have some components on my laptop not work. I hate windows though, passionately. I bought a laptop last August and it has Windows Vista, the biggest piece of crap Microsoft has ever exuded from its corporate bowels.

    Re: Mac vs. PC: The Ultimate Debate

    It always cracks me up seeing some linux or mac geek talk about how they have fewer viruses. Of course Linux and mac has fewer viruses,most people on the planet use windows. Why would any pathetic nerd living in his parent's basement going to **** with linux or mac when almost everyone and their mom use windows? It would be like learning to break into the only poor house on the block when there are a bunch of rich people's homes to break into.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
