    All those things are why I dumped Windows. And it's not because I'm computer illiterate...it's simply because it never works.

    And you are the one claiming Vigsted is making the most ignorant statement ever made.

    No, they sell because they're inexpensive and constantly make great promises. But it depends on what you use them for, I guess.

    Mine is for music production. Windows and the programs that run on it were nothing but trouble. Apple and Logic work wonderfully. Several tunes tracked and mixed, no problem.

    Windows is fine when it's working.

    The problem is that it isn't far too often. Either because or a virus, or spyware, or registry error, ar any number of other glitches, things tend to go wrong. And they do seem to go wrong for seemingly no reason at times, not just because of user error.

    Simply put, OSX is far more dependable than Windows is...

    1) I've already written several posts detailing why I prefer Windows, see above.

    2) Umm... if all corporations decided to implement for Mac, I would be doing the implementing, so it would just mean more work for me.

    Me either. However what many fail to realise is that a lot of problems that users attribute to Windows, is in fact due to the huge variation in hardware and drivers that 3rd party developers provide for Windows. Having a fixed hardware setup like the Mac, Xbox, Playstation, etc. means the OS doesn't have to worry about a million different combinations of hardware and drivers. Windows and the Intel x86 standard allows for this diversity, which is what I've always loved about them. I wasn't forced to use a given set of hardware.

    I guess the difference is that I love to tinker with my PC, even at the risk of breaking it, and that I due to my work will try to get my hands as far down the belly of the beast as possible. Windows, although not as well as I would like (see Linux), allows for this, and to me belief moreso than Mac.

    I'm not saying Mac is bad for internet browsing, photoediting and whatnot, but the diversity in the Windows environment and underlying hardware is what has always interested me.


    And stability is what you make of it. Yes pre-2000 versions of Windows had serious stability issues (you could leave a fresh 98 install running by itself for a few weeks and it would crash). However 2000 and above exhibit no instabilities in of itself. However 3rd party hardware and software can lead to instability.

    Microsoft Office for Mac is actually better than Microsoft Office for Windows.
    Mac runs smoother, less viruses, more efficent, and I dont use Internet Explorer unless I have no choice....Mozilla Firefox all the way
