i've been searching the forums lately and have found a growing number of ug'ers who hate macs. this concerns me and what concerns me is them talking how they like windows xp better considering it was released in 2001. no i know their are certain things that are wrong with mac and apple in general like the fact that they are way too expensive they don't support as many programs and are not as good for 3d graphics but what's up with the bad rap? please explain ug.

btw i recently switched to mac from windows not too long ago and am loving every part of it.

We can't afford 'em. Ergo, we hate them.
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.

Because mac owners and fankids are totally obsessed and total elitists and feel the need to point out what they feel is their superiority at any opportune (or inopportune, for that matter) moment.

That help?

I have a mac and I love it. It is superior in every way that I have ever used a PC. I've had my macbook pro for 2 years and there has never been a problem--not one fudging problem.

The reason why people dislike them so much is A) They have yet to actually try or give a mac a chance or 2) A PC satisfies their basic needs and requirements for a computer

Maybe because mac users as a majority are right and they are trying to persuade people to use this awesome piece of technology?

Eh. Macs are for people who want technology. I just want shit that works.

Its true that mac owners brag/obsess over their computers, but thats just because they're so damn good. People see it as bragging at every opportunity, but when something great is on your mind you usually share it. Is it not true that you brag about a new guitar or great song that you wrote at every opportunity? Same with a great computer

It's mainly because Mac users don't shut up about how much better they are.
And because they really aren't that much better.

I do not have a mac. I want one because I'm not very computer oriented, and I only really go on the interwebz, type word documents, and listen to music.

who deems it awesome? Really, I just prefer PC. I won't knock Macs because they run nicely, but I'd take my two year old PC over the new Macbook air anyday. It's all about likes and dislikes, and I like my PC, can't you just let me like what I like and not rub your nose where it doesn't need to be? Don't you have better things to do?

I don't hate macs, I also don't like them. Same thing with Windows or Linux.

Macs excel at certain things that Windows and Linux doesn't. Same thing with Windows to Mac and Linux. Same with Linux to Windows and Mac.

I use Windows because I like to play games, not because I'm some elitist bastard. Mac is an amazing OS and company, much respect to them.

pretty much everyone agrees that the macbook air is an overpriced, overrated, bare-to-the-bones computer.

i live macs, simply because i find them to be easier to use. i used to brag, i have stopped, and if youre happy with a pc go for it. but i think they are better machines.

I have a mac and I like it. Pc's are great too. It's just an operating system and it's all opinion on which you like better. I'm not obsessed or an elitist so try not to stereotype.

1) They only use Apple "approved" hardware, which makes customization and upgrading very hard.

2) Related to above, you can't just buy a copy of OS X, you have to buy a computer with it pre-installed.

3) The fanboys are so annoying. You like your computer, great. I like my Arch Linux but I don't have a freakin' t-shirt nor the need to tell everyone how great it is.

4) Too dumbed down. Maybe good for some people, but not for me.

5) Wayyy, too expensive. I don't understand the price tag. I could set my computer up like that for free, why pay a huge fee for someone to do it for me? Though I must admit, the Macbooks do have a nice look.

I just hate anything to do with Steve Jobs or his gay ass company. This is due to the undeniable fact that everyone has multiple orgasms over thigns like iPods and iPhones, and Jobs hypes them like Jesus came in a jar, FedEx'd it to him and told him to chare it with the masses.

They're just overbought, and the only good thing they have going for them is Stickies. Plus, that website thing is true, just look at the guy who gets all up in arms about some damn website that doesn't like Macs.

It's more the people, sometimes, as well. Like that guy I just mentioned. Mac fans are just too damn stubborn about their little wonder machine. They're like the straight-edge kids of the computer world.

To sum it all up, Steve Jobs is a big douche bag and I hate his company for being what every little scene kid and the masses drool over as the de facto status quo of technology. Better things exist!

They're not right. They don't know what they're talking about. "It just works" is not a valid persuasion. I've seen them "back up" their persuasions with reasons such as "Apple makes all da parts..so it must be gud" to "u can run windows on it". All of these reasons are retarded and shows no real experience on the part of the users.

Anyways, I don't hate Macs (the OS) at all. In fact, I'm multibooting Leopard along with a few other OS's on my PC. It's pretty nice, but I am not more impressed with it than the other OS'es that I use. I don't like proprietary systems because they're too restrictive and inflexible, so I don't like how the whole Mac system works. I don't like knowing that I, as a consumer, is in the hands of a monopoly, Apple. If I buy an actual Mac system, Apple has every opportunity to charge me more for things that I could do by myself on a PC for less.

It's the fanboys who are the real factor of annoyance and disdain for Macs. They treat their computers (read: a materialistic object) as something higher than it actually is. They think by owning a Mac, they are part of some sort of distinct community, and in some cases, even lifestyle and religion. This is utterly hilarious and pathetic. It's a computer. It's a metal case with a processor, motherboard, memory, and drives. It is profoundly stupid when mac users rave religiously about their computers ("I just recently converted to macs", "I converted my heathen friend from PC to Macs", etc). Their false superiority can best be summed in the South Park episode, Smug Alert. Just replace hybrid cars with Mac computers.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I just don't like them because I'm to used to Window's.

I use them at school and I don't like the way they're set up.
