1) Lets compare macintosh to an airline:

All the stewards, captains, baggage handlers, and ticket agents look and act exactly the same. Every time you ask questions about details, you are gently but firmly told that you don't need to know, don't want to know, and everything will be done for you without your ever having to know, so just shut up.

2) Here are some comments on one of the entries speaking in defence of macs:

"You may have used Macs at some point in your lifetime, doesn't mean you know everything about them. Stop spreading BS."

I probably know more than you, even though I use Windows:

Most software that is developed for Macintosh (other than the {shitty} OS itself) is written using Microsoft Visual C++ Cross-Platform Development Edition. Guess what? VC++CPE runs on WINDOWS ONLY! In other words, macintosh is the WORST choice for programmers/developers such as myself. kthx

""Adobe abandoned them" Yes, that's why they still actively develop Mac apps. What a steel trap mind you've got!!"

They still develop Mac apps, true, but guess what they use to develop them? Microsoft Visual C++ Cross-platform Development edition! (see what I mentioned about VC++ above)

"" that cant run any good programs." Macs started the desktop publishing revolution, were the first computers to run Excel natively, were the first computers to run Photoshop natively ... the list goes on and on."

But can they run command-line tools like most other OS's like Windows, Linux, etc??????????? NO. Granted using a GUI (Graphical User Interface) program is easier but command-line programs tend to be faster, smaller, less runtimes, etc. And if you weren't a complete retard then you wouldnt have any problem whatsoever using a command-line tool/program.

"D. They aren't paperweights. I'm using a Mac right now damnit. Anyone with HALF A FUCKING BRAIN knows that Macs are useful. Your little Windows mags even use Macs in their art department. Mhm, that's right."
Hmm... you know what was probably used to develop the Macintosh painting thing or w/e its called? microsoft visual c++ cross-platform development edition. (See what I mentioned about that earlier in this entry.) Get that fact into your thick skull, k?
To sum it up,

Windows > Macintosh
All other OS's > Macintosh

#mac #sucks #its #true #fags
Most of you Mac-worshipping idiots have no clue what you're talking about.

- "My Windows computer wouldn't crash so much if it was a Macintosh!"
Windows isn't a computer dumbshit, it is an OPERATING SYSTEM! Then again, if you were too stupid to realize that, then you should use a Macintosh... besides, if you believe that Windows crashes frequently, see PEBKAC.

- "Any PC user should thank Apple because without Apple you would 1) Have no mouse. 2) Have no graphical user interface (GUI). 3) No Windows "Vista," because the OS is basically a copy of many of the features that Mac users have had for years."

1) Really? Apple was able to innovate double-click technology all by themselves?
2) Apple copied the idea of a GUI from Xerox - they didn't think of it themselves.
3) And OS X doesn't have features that were stolen from Windows? The dock is just a reimplementation of the Windows taskbar, quick launch bar, and notification area. As for the "dock menu", isn't that just a clever reinvention of the Start Menu?

- "Based on unix", "unix based"

This may surprise you, but OS X is actually based on freeBSD which is a REIMPLEMENTATION of Unix. And by "Based on freeBSD", I mean that Apple stole the BSD kernel, tortured it, and left it as a cripple. Also, as somebody already mentioned, you can see that versions of the Mac OS based on Apple's own technology (OS 9 and below) totally suck ass. Apple finally realized it would be a good idea to move to somebody elses technology. OS X is the only version of the Mac OS that comes close to being worthy of comparison with any version of Windows, and it doesn't even use Apple's own kernel! Windows XP, on the other hand is based on the technology of Windows NT. It's basically Windows NT 5.1.

- "Macintoshes are way faster than Winblows. It's been proven in benchmark test after benchmark test. Just because a computer has a higher clock speed doesn't mean that it's faster. Ever heard of CHIP STRUCTURE? Kthx."

Lmfao... lmfao... lmfao... do you actually believe that Apple told the truth about those benchmarks? They conducted the benchmarks themselves, and lied about their performance. Actual benchmarks have proven that a iMac G5 is slower than a Dell Pentium.
Me: Nope.
Me: Firstly, I have a decent virus scanner that has kept me safe from all malicious programs. Secondly, nobody bothers to make viruses for macintoshes. You can't even get NEGATIVE attention.
Me: Apple copied the idea of a GUI from Xerox. Besides it's not like Apple never copied anything from Microsoft... your Dock Menu is just reinvented Start Menu.
Me: *Falls on the floor laughing*

Most people have already covered the definition of a Macintosh pretty well, but I'd like to add a little.

If you've read other definitions, you'd see that everyone says macs are useless unless you're a graphic designer or film editor. MAYBE that is the industry standard to some degree, but I've been a graphic designer for long enough to disagree that macs are best for my profession. They do get the job done, and well enough at that, but I'd much prefer using a PC for the following reasons:

1) The hardware of PCs is far more customizable. Not only that, but you can put MUCH better parts in a PC for cheaper, and if you want to upgrade at some point down the road, you can do so for much cheaper.

2) Taking into consideration what I said in number one, I can do things faster on a PC. Naturally, with better parts, your computer speed WILL be faster.

3) Versatility. If I need to do more than just a design, I don't have to jump over to a PC to do it. You can just do it all on the same computer.

All of this being said, I am not a "stupid mac-hater" or anything like that. In fact, I've used macs for designing just as much as PCs probably. But, because of the superiority of a PC, the only reason I'll ever own a mac is so that when I'm dealing with customers or fellow designers I can use mac fonts for those who don't know how to save properly.

I'd also like to add this: sure, macintosh puts out attractive products, but because of the flexibility of the hardware you can buy for a PC, you can have a product that is MORE attractive and actually fits your own personality, rather than the personality of Apple Computers.
If you want to save money and get better performance, stick to a PC (as opposed to a macintosh)

the worst computers ever made except for word-processing (which my old 66 MHZ can do) and graphic design. Tries to lure noobs in by making flashy colors, but then craps on their heads.
Bob: Hey, want to play Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy?

Jake: No, my mom bought me a Macintosh. It doesn't support any games!

Bob: That's teh sux0rz!

What hippies use to feel proud of themselves because they've steered wide of the herd.
Guy: Why'd you buy a macintosh?
Guy2:Why not?
Guy2:Oh...but the design looks cool!

1. Intel-based PC manufacturer (IE Compaq, ACER, Packard Bell.. Macintosh)
2. Personal computers that run Mac OS -OR- the Windows OS natively (which is a good thing)
3. Former "flagship" of a company which now sells moooosic and ba-a-a-a-ad hip hop videos to their faithful cattle and sheep.
Once upon a time the Macintosh was special. Then they sold out. Then they went bankrupt. Then Bill Gates bought Steve Jobs out of NeXT, they recovered, and they sold out again. Adobe abandoned them. Then OSX came out on a Linux platform (Come on and you DIDN'T think they were prepping for migration??) ..

I know. I had one. You live, they lie, you learn.

A Lame, overpriced excuse for a computer. Useful for people under the age of seven who enjoy a ugly and confusing user interface with a small list of compatible programs.
Stupid 7 y.o: Hey i just got the macintosh macbook air today, its the worlds thinnest laptop!!11

Normal 7 y.o: WTF Why did you do that

Stupid 7 y.o: Because its thin and you can play Microsoft Word on it!

Normal 7 y.o: Microsoft word isn't a game you idiot

Stupid 7 y.o: But Steve Jobs told me it was the best program that worked on the system

Normal 7 y.o: Yeah that's cause its from Microsoft!
