Asking which is better on a mac forum, I don't expect to see too many windows is better posts
Bingo. I've been using XP on my iMac since 2006 and I've only had to reinstall XP the same number of times as I have for OSX. They're both solid systems, I use them both a lot and I've never had a virus or problem with Windows.
I think you're reading something in my post that's not there.I think you're speaking out of turn here. You can't possibly claim that every Windows user has malware issues, because it's simply not true.
Don't you know that it's the nature of forum posters to interpret a post in whatever way they need to, to make it go against their own opinion?I think you're reading something in my post that's not there.
I never said every windows user. I said "You have zero malware issues that you do with windows." That is OSX by in far dose not have malware where as windows does have malware. I'm not sure how that is translated into every windows user experiencing malware issues. That's not what I stated.
This guy is correct. It's all about opinion, and opinion is NEVER fact, therefore neither can be proven better or worse. Of course, there can be an average preference for an OS among humans, however it doesn't make one better than the other.
Sort of like how you claim you the following:I think you're speaking out of turn here. You can't possibly claim that every Windows user has malware issues, because it's simply not true.
Yeah ok.....Windows 7 is much more stable than Snow Leopard and has more software available. Looks like it is Apple doing the too little, too late thing.
This guy is correct. .
So two people think I'm spot on - and you're rolling your eyes. Why, exactly?here we go again...
Certainly you bought that PC used?? My bottom-of-the-barrel discontinued Mac LCII that I had new in 1997 had 2MB of RAM I think (I think I upgraded to 4 since 2 couldn't do anything).As far as performance I couldn't judge as I went from a PC that I bought in 02 that had 640K Ram to a new Macbook Pro.
Agreed. I will never have a virus or malware on my Win XP machine - It is not connected to the internet!You can't possibly claim that every Windows user has malware issues, because it's simply not true.
I think we can stop right there. Instead of saying "Mac is better" or "PC is better", I wish people would say, "Mac is better for me because...". Then maybe the conversation would focus on selecting hardware for the needs of the end user instead of blind loyalty to one brand over another.It's mostly personal preference [snip]
I still have mine! Use it about once a week or so.I had a G3 Wallstreet Powerbook that lasted a tad over 6 years before I sold it.
To be fair, I know a couple of people who are still using ancient Dell and Compaq laptops with Windows ME on them. Of course, it's purely out of either technological apathy, a tight budget (or both) that they keep them around as their only computers. But yes, by comparison, I know no Mac users who are still on G3/G4 PowerBooks as their only computers.To some, it's about the hardware. A Mac laptop will last longer than a Windows laptop if you take care of them the same way.
