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.
Mac user: LOL UR ON WINDOWS UR COMPUTER PROBABLY CRASHES EVERY...... 1 MINUTE LOL
Mac user: BUT WINDOWS SUX BECAUSE IT GETS VIRUSES MACS ARE VERY SECURE
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.
Mac user: BUT M$ STOLE THE IDEA OF A GUI FROM MACS
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.
Mac user: MACS R FASTER THAN PCS
Me: *Falls on the floor laughing*
The 10 reasons that Apple must think is imperative for making the change from a PC to a MAC can be found on their website. Of course if you have the time to read through all of them you realise that these 10 features or reasons have been standard with the PC a long, long, long time. Some of the reasons are just plain myths that Apple invented. Probably because they ran out of fabricated facts.more...
So take the journey through the 10 commandments of a mac-enthusiast and enjoy their naive attitude towards personal computing.
1. The Mac... It just works
This is maybe the ultimate reason a mac owner will give you to explain why it's superior to a PC. The mac owner will tell you that all people that own macs are really satisfied with their computers and would never switch back. This is ofcourse not true.
The mac owner will also tell you that with a system from Apple you will never have to think about drivers, upgrades or anything. A mac is perfection itself when delivered. Atleast according to their standard. Many macs can't even be upgraded. So what you buy is what you get. Expect your system to be outdated within 1-2 years.
Apple also states: "Only with a Mac do you get an operating system built by the same people who built the computer it runs on.". Actually Apple's Mac OS X (the operating system) is not based on their own technology, but by the technology of freeBSD. Apple's own capabilities in form of creating an operating system have been demonstrated in previous ve...
The computer for the rest of them...
Those that can, do, those that can't use a Macintosh.
Macintosh is an OS which no common people can find a use for, and therefore it is used in elementary schools because no decent game company/programmers would waste a second of their lives even considering to create a Mac-compatible version of their programs, thus creating a distraction-free learning environment for 10 year olds.
Principal: Yeah we're recieving those new Macintosh computers today. From what I hear even less programs than the older version are compatible on it.
A computer, also known in short as "Mac". very easy to use but not many programs available for it, and useless for gamers. Some schools may have it for it's basic functions.
Bob: Name ONE thing you're PC can do that my Macintosh can't.
Me: Right click.
A large expensive paperweight typically favored by granola lovers and those who prefer not to be able to use a computer for anything worth while.
"Oh good, you have a Macintosh. Your work papers will never be blown around when the fan is on AND you never have to worry about buying any computer programs, since there are none available."
A "computer" that doesn't have shit hot stats and is not normally upgradable, making it useless to gamers, and due to a different interface, cannot be used in the workplace efficiently, making it useless to those that have a job.
Considering the fact that gaming and working are the only two plausible applications for a computer, macs are entirely useless. They can browse the internet, but then again, so can cell phones. Some say these are "media computers" having programs designed for media editing and such, but considering that even the mac word processor is a microsoft program, this arguement doesn't have much weight.
Given, they do look cool, but PCs, being upgradable, have far surpassed mac in the 'looks cool' category.
Also, the statement that PCs crash often isn't true. PCs don't just crash, the users cause them to crash. Mac users not able to cope with the fact that PCs are better try to use one, cause it to crash, and blame it on the system. PEBKAC
Mac user: "The new Macintosh for $1200 is better than any PC."
Rational person: "Wait ten days, then try to say that again."
(Also known as a "Mac") A raincoat (the first) named after Charles Macintosh, a Scottish chemist who in 1822/23 patented a method for making waterproof garments using rubber dissolved in naphtha.
Its raining cats and dogs outside lucky I brought my Macintosh.
