This is fantastic!!! Everyone take a look
This is old news. But it is a good read.
wtf is wrong with these Mac zealots?!
Each platform is good for something the other platform can't do or do well. Grrrrr.
there are three reasons people would want to use a pc:
1) they like to play pc games
2) they need an app like 3d studio max ect.
3) they are ignoretent of any alternatives
Though I often feel your sentiment, I agree with übergeek, there is a purpose of every device that exists - otherwise, they wouldn't exist.
One can say the same in defense of Macintosh.
Please try to refrain from biting a hand that could help...
My SA at school seems to defend Microsoft very staunchly, and jokes about Apple - it took us 2-4 years to get the Apple equipment we needed for the music and meda departments through!!
I feel that as an OS Mac OS X is probably one of the best around, certainly streets ahead of windows, but for the task windows has been set - to work, and work well on any possible configuration of hardware (within reason).
For my money, XP is certainly the best windows yet - and I do have a wide range of games I like to play on it... but within the next 10 years I intend to completely switch to Mac's for all my computer needs and buy a game console for my gaming needs...
And yes, I do realise this is old news... there's another thread, but I only just found it!
i use my PC for software development purposes (VPC totally sucks when it comes to running some apps like VS.net). I use my PC for gaming (maybe once in a blue moon). I use my PC to do physical things I can't do with a Mac (whoever heard of a case modded watercooled Power Mac G5 ). I use my PC to do my homework. I use my PC as a server. I use my PC to run some new OS i've been dying to try out. I take out a lot of my anger out on the PC, but I do that on my Mac too. Just remember that Windows is NOT the only OS you can use on an x86 machine .
Talking of which, what CAN VPC do well... and I mean well!!
Take up space, resources and cash better used for other things.
