Contrary to Carlos Net's rather long, dull, and fairly innaccurate descriptions, The Apple is no more than a pretty command prompt OS. Many claim that it is more stable than Windows because viri don't affect it, in actuality no one has made any viri because the Apple is so rarely used, it would be a waste of programming time. Not to mention the lack of affordable programming languages that are Apple-friendly.
Apple computers also have the highest rate (proportionately) of spontaneous shutdown; making simple writing tasks much more difficult.
This by far takes the cake. Carlos stated that most of Windows optional upgrades come installed on a standard Mac. This is a blatant lie. Mac's come standard with one (count'em one) CD-R or CD-RW drive. They abolished floppies 10 years ago because they were obsolete. Obsolete! Ten years ago and still today, nearly every student I know carried at least one floppy on his/her person. I myself carried 10. When we were forced to use Macs at school, most of us had to use a Win2Mac PC to get our files across the network. This is not what I call compatability. And Carlos stated something about Apple upgrades. Where the hell would you put them? The iMac (hate the lowercase i by the way) is big enough for the moniter and the one malfunctioning Disk drive.
And it is true, the Apple comes preloaded with tons of software, software that nobody wants or needs, Geometers' SketchPad. WTF? Grow up and get a pencil. And the comment about Internet Explorer? IE and Windows WERE in no way related. The Internet was invented by the British, or someone in central Europe, hypertext being used long before American distributuion. Yes its a little sloppy, but it is the most effective way to do it without having to include loads of precompiled files that do simple tasks like a line break.
Visual Basic and C++ don't require any expensive equipment to operate, other than an actual computer, and I understand why a Dell crashed after you put EVERY UPGRADE you could into it, no computer (short of a mainframe) could handle that kind of High memory RAM checking.
So think what you want Apple users, but remember, save often.
Windows has its problems (blue screen of death) but it sure beas the hell out of Macs. And while we're on the note of beating the hell out of Macs, if you have one, do so until it starts to spew human blood.
The alternative to the orange.
Today, I do not wish to consume an apple. I shall seek alternative fruits.
A horrendous company that has somehow managed to stay afloat for years and appeal to a mass of misguided people. They specialize in taking existing technology, making it all shiny and fancy looking, and re-selling it for double the price. Ironically, their slogan is "Think Different".
Their latest and greatest gadget that's getting all the attention is, of course, the iPhone, which is basically comparable to any high-quality $150 phone, except it has "innovative" touch screen technology, and it sells for $600.
Apple couldn't quite figure out how to make an operating system, so they just stole the freeBSD kernel and repackaged a bastardized version of it as Mac OS X. It's funny that Apple brags that it's "Unix-based", since no one with experience in Unix would ever use a Mac.
Apple frequently runs "clever" ads. Although they've made a ton of them, all the ads boil down to how Windows has viruses and crashes all the time. Apple also have an enormous, cult-like fanbase that like to remind us of these things every five seconds. Apple fanboys are generally smug, annoying, and arrogant, despite the fact that most of them don't know jack shit about computers.
Apple Fanboy: "M$ is teh sux0r! Apple pwns!"
Windows User: "Windows has a wide selection of software and games, and a huge developer community."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT IT CRASHES AND HAS VIRUSES LOL"
Windows User: "My OS hasn't crashed since I had Windows ME. And AVG is a free program that keeps my computer secure."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT WINDOZE SUXX!"
Windows User: "Would you care to tell me about your Mac? I hear it doesn't have many tools for software developers, which are important for my work."
Apple Fanboy: "lolololol but windows sucks!!!11"
Windows User: "Did you know that a great amout of Apple software is made with Microsoft Visual C++?"
Apple Fanboy: "omg wtf is C++?"

While their operating system's market share may be significantly below that of Microsoft's windows, many still prefer to use Apple's computers and software, especially for graphical design and audio work.
Many people like to debate over the superiority of macs over pcs and visa versa, such people have no lives.
