I hate PCs simply because they make everything 10 times more difficult than necessary and rarely work after the first week of ownership. PC fans TOTALLY get off on how difficult they are so they can pretend it’s War Games and they are hacking into the W.O.P.R.
8bit – You will never convince me that buying something that works WITHOUT having to learn how to operate the Space Shuttle is wrong. I don’t understand this desire to work hard for it.
I have been using computers professionally for almost 20 years now and I know what I’m doing, trust me.
Macs work without headaches, simple as that. With my “inferior machine” I have the ability to record professional studio quality recordings with unlimited tracks, I can create HD/broadcast/film quality 2D and 3D animations, I can edit HD/broadcast/film quality video, I can create posters, books, magazines, billboards, websites with industry standard software, and MUCH more. All this without a single virus since 1984 when I received my first Mac.
This shiny computer earns me a nice chunk of change every year!
8Bit, I get it, it’s a bit of a hobby for you to build and rebuild your PC, I have other hobbies that do not possibly endanger the existence of all my files. I like naming a file whatever I want, I like being able to run ProTools and Avid seamlessly, I like how much faster and better my iTunes runs on a Mac. And yes, like listy, I like the design. Some people think the J. Edgar Hoover Building in D.C. is beautiful, others think the Guggenheim is better.
Just to chime in….I work in places not very far off from space shuttle mission control and what people use for their front end is pretty much irrelevant. IT people like macs. I can build a PC and put some version of linux on it for $500 that is twice as powerful as any mac available. Of course….I don’t do much video editing just physics simulations and data analysis. I’m also a genius. Computers are pretty much all the same to me once I get to the command line. The bottom line is this: macs are superior at one thing….visually appealing software. But that’s only because some geek out there poured his heart in to some code that “makes things pretty” so that it doesn’t take much artistry to produce. Also…he coded it in vi (maybe emacs if he’s a twat).
Meh…PC’s rule. Paying an extra $1000 for a glowing apple is not appealing to me (pun intended!).
Listy – have you upgraded to Win 7? It is awesome and will solve many of your security issues inherently. Oh and tell your gf to stop browsing hard core porn sites…they are minefields of trojan horses and backdoor santas!!!
It’s not enough for them to like (insert computer, video game system, smart phone, music genre, orifice, etc…), they actually have to hate anything that is not that what they like.
This PC vs Mac thing is worse than tween girls arguing over Edward or that other feminine cupcake. Reading it is like pure ghonneria for my eyes.
Who gives a shit what you use? Just use the damn thing.
I like Supreme (Yes, that’s capitalized. They’re that good!) flavored pizza rolls. But you don’t see me talking shit to anyone who likes pepperoni and ranting about how the mixture of extra veggies in the Supreme flavored ones are far superior to just pig meat.
I have both PC and a Mac and I use them for different things. My PC is for games, audio recording/editing, and programming. My Mac is for web browsing, design, and web development.
How can I use both you ask? Because I’m not a fucktard who has pledged allegiance to some company who doesn’t really give a shit about what I surf porn with, as long as I’m giving them money. It’s not like your Mac/PC love is going to change anybody’s fuckin’ mind.
So you dumb hoes keep fighting over God damned operating systems. I hope that in the end, your parents will recognize their failure and at some point, you will too and do us all a favor by drinking sand.
Lawrence – i simply meant that i don’t feel the need to have long drawn out arguments about pcs vs. macs because i honestly prefer books to computers. i am not at all offended by other people being really “into” computers – most of my friends have tech jobs.
yes, obviously i USE a computer to surf the web and whatnot, but beyond that i have very little opinion on the matter. which is not to say that reading other peoples opinions on the subject isn’t entertaining and/or interesting.
now, if you want to have a debate about literature over a couple of glasses of grain alcohol i’d be WAY more interested..
Nothing wrong with PCs if you’re smart enough to use one, the problem is when technophobic or downright stupid people who should be using Macs (which are designed so that even artists can use them) get PCs because they’re cheap. It’s like nerf guns vs real guns.
@test -> awesome.
I don’t understand feeling emotion for either of these arguments either. As Lawrence said it’s like arguing over flavors, or what color is better than another. I make my living with computers as well, and I own 2 Macs and 3 PC’s, I don’t hate or love any of them more than the others, they all serve their purpose. I wear a jacket on cold days, and a t-shirt on hot days. Hating pc’s for having security vulnerabilities or Macs for having planned obsolescence and the inability to do any complex task is like hating my jacket for being too hot on a hot day, or my t-shirt too cold when it’s snowing, it’s just retarded.
