    your a terrible mac evangelist :)

    but whats wrong with what he said. my windows machine is easy to use, it never crashes, just as stable as my powerbook and g5, mine pc has never gotten a virus either. i dont see what the big deal is. its hard and pointless to switch someone who is happy with their machine. not every windows machine is bad.

    Sigh, always happens on both sides. People hate Macs and they don't know why, people hate PCs and they don't know why. I use Windows, too, so I have ever right to hate it when it pisses me off. Apple just pisses me off less. Are Macs perfect? No. But they look pretty close when comparing them to PCs sometimes.

    If you're happy with Windows, that's fine. Don't like Apple for valid reasons, that's fine too. But you gotta admit most people just use Windows because that's what there. "Cheaper", "faster". Sad but true.

    My favorite is when they call Macs toys, but then say they won't buy them because it won't run their favorite games. :rolleyes:

    What a suprise, I posted in this thread:p

    Solvs and iJon make good points, people who haven't had recient experience on either platform can't really make an informed decision or comment.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    I think that you should stand in the corner for an hour and think about all the bad things you've done in the past 2,500,000 milliseconds or so and learn from the experience. ;)
