Recently I visited my brother, a diehard Windows user. He has a self-built box with a AMD Athlon 2.1GHz cpu, 1GB Ram, 120HD Master and a 40GB slave HD, ATi Radeon with 256 VRAM. We were looking at my photos I took with Canon A560 in Photoshop. The images were 7.68 x 10.24 inches at 300ppi, RGB, 20MB files. There were 18 images, he opened all of the at once and that is when I noticed the difference between Windows users and Mac users. I should also mention we were listening to Winamp and copying to a jump drive about 70MB of files. Observation 1) Windows slows down to a crawl when multiple operations are taking place. Observation 2) Windows users are impatient. He was getting upset that Photoshop wasnt as fast he thought it was when handling these small files. Observation 3) Windows doesnt multitask to well. Observation 4) Window users use the mouse and the tool bars instead of keyboard shortcuts. Observation 5) Windows seems to be an inefficent interface. The explorer is strange, with it folders and files separated. The dual pane approach with folders that have little plus signs next to them. Observation 6) Windows doesnt copy as fast as Macs, either over an network, to another internal HD or external drive. Observation 7) Windows users are too wrapped up in the minutiae of programs and settings. Observation 9) Windows users are obsessed with video cards. It is my understanding that they only come into play when playing games or doing 3d work. Doing 2d work such as I do, they dont seem as important. Observation 8) Finally, Windows is ulgy too look at. These are my opinions about watching and using Windows. Im a Mac user since the IIcx days and use a Windows box for one client at work.
