I saw in the news yesterday that mac has beaten Microsoft in terms of money.

well this sucks. I've hated them ever since they started making fun of PCs in their commercials. How do they expect to get me to buy their stuff if they are making fun of my computer??

Oh well, i guess it's for the best, i like ipods, but then again i have a burning hate of mac computers and the ipad.

Speaking of which, does anyone in the pit actually have a mac computer that isn't a laptop?? I want to see how much people, if any, do.

My hamster used to bite me when I picked it up, then it got too old and fat to bite and died in a pool of it's own vomit.

And that's where lots of it comes from, stop complaining.

Mixing on my PC is painfully laggy compared to my guitar teacher's un-laggy mac. And it crashes and freezes constantly.

I hope Microsoft don't turn out to be exploitative and horrible as well, that's the one reason I have left to feel like my frustration is worth it..

All my music related software runs like a dream on my windows 7 64-bit. It's probably your computer specs/faulty software and not the operating system.

It makes you realise how massive Windows and the Xbox are though. I mean it took Apple to release the iPad, iPod, iPhone and all it's varieties along with the Macs to over take Microsoft who's main products are Windows and the 360.

Yeah, but taking care of that sort of thing takes effort and knowledge. It's a lot easier to just grumble a bit and say "bloody Windows".

ever since steam came out on mac, windows has been becoming completely obsolete. Soon, the only reason for not having a mac will be money. Seriously, its better at EVERYTHING, even more so since i've downloaded half life 2! their system just works, where as windows gets clogged up so easily your fast computer will be snailing after a week if you're not computer literate!
#16
Its hardly a Betamax versus VHS situation though, is it? Microsoft runs pretty much every office in the world with Windows XP, as soon as Windows7 comes down in price, larger companies will shell out for it, giving Microsoft a collosal boost.

At which point Apple will come back with the iFloor, or the iCar or something equally as preposterous and expensive.

i have an i-mac and a macbook pro. But i also have a Falcon North West PC and it can do everything the mac can, if not better. It all depends on what you're doing and what you prefer.


This whole...BURNING HATE FOR MAC!?!?!!?!!!111 shit is ridiculous.

it's not the macs themselves, they're pretty cool machines, I don't think anyone's saying anything about the computers themselves.

It's their borderline-retarded fanboys that we hate, and their constant chanting of Steve Jobs' advertising slogans, when they have no idea what they're actually talking about.

I didn't realise there was a company called Mac.

Isn't that what they say in the ads?

So basically, anything that can run Half Life 2 is the ultimate computer for you?
I wish people wouldn't make such a big fuss about it. It's a computer, not a way of life.

You sure have bought into the mac propaganda for some reason. I feel no need to assert the superiority of pc's over macs or vice versa. For the time being you can get a PC that performs better than a Mac for a lower price, hence I have a PC. The whole "snailing" thing you're talking about is a pile of horse crap too.

I agree, I was more responding to the "my mac can run steam and music programs better"
replies.

^This. There is a section of Mac users who gain an incredible amount of smug from the fact that they use a Mac(or pretty much any other Apple product), and think this makes them superior to all the other sheep who are using Windows(or non-Apple product of any description).

I recommend that you leave and stop using computers for the rest of your life and do not give anyone advice on anything computer related.

i have a mac laptop and a windows home comp. my mac is 2 years old? about that and the PC was just updated a few weeks ago and my mac owns sh*t out of my windows comp. sure it took like 10minutes to get used to it from a windows comp but if a 11 year old (like i was at the time) can do it in 10 minutes then the rest can deal with it.
it does have a right click to the idiot up there :p
i don't have much music software on my comp because i don't really need it but my school has it on their mac comps and its brilliant, no lag like it is on windows
not that anyone actually cares as i've just realised after typin it :P cos this was about money, ahhh money what a waste of time

hence this statement is null and void

Lol. Good job blurting out Apple marketing slogans like the brainwashed parrot that Mac ads tend to turn people into.

Within my realm (ie the physics department), I love that a lot of my professors are very smug about the fact that they have a Mac and I'm running a PC. However, we're all dual booting Linux... and pretty much everything we do runs in Linux. So, they paid an extra $750 so that their's could be made silvery and be painted with Steve Job's jiz.

Personally, I think Macs are neat machines, but still don't have nearly the software that Microsoft does. Until they can guarantee that every piece of software that comes out will be "also on Mac" they simply won't hold a candle to Microsoft, because every piece of software (that doesn't come out of Mac's office) DOES come out for Windows.

On topic: Microsoft shares are still worth more (as someone pointed out) and if you look strictly at operating system/computer sales... Windows is still reigning supreme.

Your computer must be running specs lower than the Mac. And as someone said, your statement is moot.

Oh yeah? You think Mac/Apple has won?

"Starting this summer, porn will be blocked from all Mac browsers. If you want smut, use Windows."
Straight from Steve Jobs himself.

Have fun ^_^

Also, Windows won't break my phone/computer if I decide to mod it in a way they don't like it.

Apple will regulate everything you do ^_^
