    I was on youtube checking out the mac vs. pc ads and came across with this comment:

    I am a computer specialist.
    mac sucks. linux, which is also a pc, rules all of the big company networks.
    windows has so many different programs that can run on it, compared to a mac which limits you to use specific softwares that are not so great. mac is a simplified version of pc actually . it is more like it is for beginners.

    lmao

    Does this kind of response actually surprise you? I see this all the time.

    Not that youtube is any source of cultural change, but that guy is probably in a minority these days in terms of his hatred towards the platform. I think most Windows users these days don't assume that Macs are useless, and actually consider their options more than they did before (if last quarter's results are any indication).

    the very fact that you went to youtube and searched for "mac v pc"..... means anything?

    i didn't search mac vs. pc, i searched for the mac vs. pc ads, the ones that are also on apple's website, but i went looking for them on youtube to show them to a friend of mine who couldn't open them on apple's website.

    Why couldn't he open them on Apple's website?

    Either way, youtube comments are not of any particular quality, so it really is a moot point.

    I don't know, but he's on windows. :p

    I know youtube comments aren't of any particular quality and that mac-hater comments are common but i found this one particulaly funny because of the "i'm a computer specialist. mac sucks"

    He probably doesn't have Quicktime updated(the videos on Apple's page always require the latest version).

    As for the whole "I'm a computer specialist," remark, that is a common stance taken by many IT professionals. It's probably their fears of job security (or rather, insecurity).;)

    Is this guy for real? I almost spewed on my Dell (which I surprisingly haven't done so already).

    Just thought I'd post before this thread gets deep-sixed... :p
