So my teacher, (Network +, A+) is quite the Mac hater. Now this has been going on since August, but for the most part I just laugh it off, I figure I know the truth, so I don't care. But the more and more she blatantly lies about it in front of the class, the more and more it's annoyed me, and now I'm ready to respond. I'll give you a couple of scenarios that have happened. 1. This is one of her most common reasons for being Anti-Mac, "APPLETALK IS CHATTY!!" ok, so I know this might have had truth to it, but the research I've gone with said it was primarily fixed in System 7, and of course OS X doesn't even have Appletalk on by default. She constantly has just ignored or chosen to ignore these facts, and I need a more hard pressed way of proving this. She honestly believes that the minute you put a single Macintosh on the network, all hell breaks loose. She has stated this multiple times, and that they should just be quarantined with other Macs. Now, when I brought those facts up about how it was primarily fixed in System 7, and OS X doesn't even use them, she just told me "Well I bet the majority use older systems", is there any market share statistics that would prove how little a minority Mac classic users are? 2. Last week I mentioned how I had an old G3 iMac that I'd be happy to bring in, so we could get a bit of experience with OS X. She said "Well I'm not sure you'll see them much but, ok, we can see how much the traffic goes up on our network" Now this is me, practically donating a very nice system to the school (public HS btw) So Monday rolls around and I bring it in, lugging the beast all around campus, and the first thing she mutters is "Well it won't play games haha", to my friend who was sitting near her (I didn't quite catch it as I was on the other side of the room) What the hell? After that I decided I'd take it back and not keep it here at all, and bring it back to my house. So we put it on the network, I must admit a couple were pretty surprised how easy it was to set things up like web sharing and crap, and the teachers pet was looking at the packets in the network (Note, I had appletalk off, since it was a clean install) and he didn't say anything that day. Now today she said "That's why the networking went up so high when he brought the Mac in there!" So, I just need some hard stats and proof from a reputable source, to where I can disprove her idiocy in front of the class. Thanks for those who read, hopefully you find this saga interesting.
