Well we all have em, my friend is an ardent PC user, he is all into Linux, and used to be a windows lover, but Linux converted him. However he despises Macs. Well since we are friends we have frequent arguments about Macs however he knows way more about programming then I know( he wrote his own OS) So here are some his complaints, I wonder if you have answers. 1. Macs crash way too much under OS X, of course I know that OS X is stable however he is convinced that OS X is the worst version os UNIX ever, one problem I have with this argument is that our schools Macs don't to well exhibiting OS X's stability. We use iMovie, FCP, and QT a lot and whenever we run programs on them they crash, and crash often. So of course this only convinces my friend even more. 2. Macs are poor at multi-tasking, he complains to me whenever he runs multiple programs on our schools macs. Running iMovie and QT at the same time results in slow performance and crashes and he chides OS X for ruining the best part of UNIX which is well known for its multitasking. 3. When ever we try and move or export large files the Macs bomb, so of course this is more ammo for him. 4. He hates that you can't have two QT programs open at once, or two Internet explorer programs open at the same time. On windows he boasts how he can have 5 individual Word programs open at the same.(This does not mean 5 windows, but 5 individual Word programs open at the same time) This again he says shows why Mac OS has ruined UNIX 5. His favorite argument has to be that all Apple cares about is making "pretty computers" while using bad software and hardware, he hates that eMacs and iMac's are not expandable, and he thinks its ridiculous that you have to pay $2000 on the Apple platform to get expandability. So as you can see I'm in a tight spot, he makes some good arguments, so what can I tell him to convince him other wise. Please be specific, he knows his techno talk well.
