    THIS IS A FACT...
    MACS are only stable because they are using on proprietary hardware....

    example.. apple only supports a couple graphics cards like 8800gt(which i have kicks ass in crysis)/HD2600/HD2400/etc.... only probably a total of 8 tops....

    (kinda biase)windows on the other hand supports a range... imo apple would die on the mass market coding for different manufacturers

    not a pc fanboy but this ticks me off because you fanboys don't frecken understand

    the ultimate OS imo is linux... and when ppl complain for microsoft stealing ****... its the same with apple.... you should compare their interface

    I think supporting a few more build to order options would help marketshare greatly.

    ? just because MS whores itself out to anyone that will take it (driver wise) doesnt mean apple has to.

    And WTF are you talking about with the linux interface? OSX is based mostly off of NEXT's work which i beleive was made to look the way it does because thats what jobs wanted.

    Do you rant without reason all the time?

    I don't know if you understand this or not but microsoft doesn't make the drivers ATI, NVIDIA etc. do. Yes we do understand and if you did a search you would then see how many people actually care. I'm one of them.

    Second Microsoft doesn't code for different manufacturers they only make one version. The Manufacturers have to support Microsoft.

    techguy 172 is right

    Techguy 172 you are right

    but what i mean is that you can't be monopoly of your own hardware and set prices to whatever you want

    i wanted a macbook like a couple months ago but it the price is ridiculous!!!!!!


    edit

    the next point is that i think apple should try to code for mass market so that they can see the difficulty

    btw this is my last post

    That's the trade off with apple they have no "REAL" Competitors using the same os, therefore they set the prices.

    I know sometimes it really sucks but in the end I still prefer apple.
