The Macintosh is an OS that's optimum for digital photography and graphic design, like Photoshop
, for animation, like Flash
, and for video editing and publishing, like Final Cut
. Great OS for artists and the like. Gets a bad rap over Windows because of it's sheer simplicity, but does turn out to have the upper hand for what you want to use it for.
Not too many games are made for the OS, but if you want to play games, get a Windows. If you're into doing graphical work, use a Mac.
Not too many viruses exist that affect a Mac, but many do for a Windows OS. But who's fault is that?
So if you're into doing some animation, photo manipulation, video and film editing, music editing, and graphic design, get a Mac. If you want to do nothing but number crunch and write papers after papers, guy a Windows. And if you want to play video games, buy a fucking Xbox or something.
Person 1: "I've been working on this cartoon for about two years now, and my hard drive fried!"
Person 2: "You should've been working on a Macintosh. They've got one hell of a graphics card!"
Person 1: "Really? FUCK!"
