Never say never. Plus, if you would have actually read my last post, I gave a few examples to the contrary.

Macbook Pro 13" or iMac 21" ?


i dont bother reading to much about windows being better than mac. why, well ive only ever had a mac. ive messed up big time learning how to operate a computer, knew nothing about computers when i got my first mac, and never, and i mean never, had a mac crash. never had to take it in and have anything done to it. you pay more for a mac because, well its like comparing a base line kia rio to a top of the line lexus, guess thats how you spell the name, ofcourse the lexus is more yet they both have engines, windows, the rio having windows 7, had to say that. but a little difference. anyway when mac came out with the intel processors they did it all. the old story that people only write viruses for windows comes out of the mouths of windows users. they have to make some kind of excuse for getting so many of them and macs not getting them. in fact mac offered $10,000.00 to any one that could write a virus for a mac. its nice to know i can go to sites and download things that would scare the pants off a window user, music and more. guess its like PS3 verses XBOX 360, have both of them also, well ps3 for me and xbox 360 for the wife. and thats a perfect example of windows verses mac, mac being ps3, ps3 much more power, ps3 lots of free stuff. xbox = well microsoft, you want to use netflix, well you have to pay, want to play online, have to pay. ps3 = free. hey to each there own. but i know for a fact the person here buying a macbook or imac will never look back, and you know it too. yes windows lost another customer to mac.

For what it's worth, you using a Mac is by all means justified as it's what works for you. That's what's important at the end of the day, no? You have to use the right tool for the right job. The fact that you have only used a Mac (said it yourself in the 2nd sentence above) begs the question in my mind if you've ever dove into W7 enough to really even begin to compare them. Pros and cons to both scenarios, I suppose. Keep in mind, I'm not a Windows fanboy. I hate Apple and Microsoft equally.

Some LOL-able FYI's:
  • Kia is majority owned by Hyundai. Last I heard, Hyundai had the most technologically advanced car manufacturing plant, even surpassing that of Lexus.
  • The PS3 network might be free, but they also stored customer information in plain text files at one point. Sure, they're likely very secure now, but with a heavily tarnished reputation.
  • Put yourself in a hacker's shoes. You're making a virus. Do you want to aim for 8% of the users, or 90% of the users? It's not a "Windows users being mouthy" comment, it's called making some damn sense.
  • Ignorance is the #1 reason for viral infections. Just because you're on a Mac doesn't mean you can be foolish and care free. After all, 500,000 Macs are still infected with the flashback trojan. What's their excuse?

again. i have both operating systems on my computer so i know from experience what each system does. mac does not have updates all the time, and the ones it does do not require hardware. just like all the people that bought a xbox, they go on and on about how great they are, knowing that they made a big mistake in buying one but are stuck with it. think of it, mac comes with bootcamp that lets you run windows, ofcourse you have to have a windows disc to install the windows system. the reason macs to sell as much as windows is your not going to go into walmart and buy a mac for $400.00. guess it comes down to you get what you pay for, except in the case of windows because with windows you keep paying and paying and paying. i have one anti virus program, ClamXav, free. thats it. i run MSE on my virtual machine running windows 7, its also free. tell you this = pop-ups, heard about them but never seen them, but then always been on mac, started using windows and whoa there all over the place. sure you can get software to stop most of it but not needed with mac. anyway i think this discussion has run its course. windows is good for you and mac is good for me.

I'm sure you know this, but pop-ups are going to be more related to the web browser than the operating system.... which only throws more on the table in regard to why that was even brought up as a comparison point between the operating systems...

For what it's worth, I don't really use Windows anymore. All of my systems these days are running Linux. But I also won't undeservingly slam Windows when W7 is actually pretty solid (or praise OSX as the 'end-of-all-others' OS when it has its own array of downfalls), hence why I replied as such in earlier posts.

like i said, i had heard about pop-ups and knew what there were. when using vmware fusion with windows 7 and going to the same sites that i go to under osx i see the pop-ups, i dont see them when using osx. now about Linux is suppose to be the system to use. i know most people use that on there PS3,s. i could use it on my mac but havent felt a need for it.
