yeah, pay 2x the price of what the hardware costs for a logo and a cleaner interface yet less feature rich, secure and stable operating system, right.
sorry, but mac os has so many problems you cannot call it a better os than windows (overall) with any degree of honesty and computer knowledge. and not to mention that apple gets people to buy service packs for ridiculous prices (save for snow leopard) just for features that have been in windows or even computers in general for 15-20+ years that macs have done without because of apples ridiculous policy of stagnating third party and freeware developers just so they can push their crappy, overpriced software.
give me a linux version and ill be happy. until then i dont really care.
a) Have you ever
used a Mac?Or even looked
at Apple's website? Or are you just another mindless Apple-hater come to brag about how your precious Windows/Linux is perfect and flawless?
b) Apple doesn't sell service packs (and even if they did it's not like others haven't done that.Windows 7 anyone?)
c) Restrict third party-stuff? Just about every console developer EVER is guilty of that.
d) Given OSX is much faster,more efficent with it's power,more reliable,easy to fix in the rare event it does fail,actually has a decent as opposed to being needlessly complex and comes with a lot of freebies yes I'd say it's worth the extra money.
e) OSX is nowhere near that behind other OSes,least of all Windows
have you ever used a computer or do you just believe that macs are so good that your blind to the obvious? and yes, i have to deal with macs at work and they are ALWAYS a pain in the ass to fix AND work with.
yes, apple DOES sell service packs, only the call them leopard, puma, etc and call them major updates when all they do is fix a few things and add in features that have existed under windows, linux and EVERY OTHER OPERATING SYSTEM for years like time machine (aka RAID 1), spaces (aka virtualization) and boot camp (aka partitioning a hard drive), then charges outrages prices for them.
were talking about PERSONAL COMPUTERS, NOT CONSOLES.
all of those things are because of my previous point, that apple strictly controls EVERY aspect of its os, even down to who can make programs for it, even going so far as to serve lawsuits to 3rd party and freeware developers who refuse to stop working on programs apple hasant given the green light to.
easier to fix my ass. with linux you can edit anything, instead of just using a workaround (which is what fixing problems in windows and mac os actually is) so you can acutally FIX the problems with the os. as for comparison to windows, if apple was as open as microsoft your mac would be a hell of a lot worse off. ever try a radeon hd 4870 with a mac? not a pretty sight.
and yes, it is. raid 1 has been available since the mid 80s, yet it took until 2005 for apple to incorporate it into their computers. a similar, yet completely unpublicized feature has existed in windows since win 95, and has been in every microsoft os since. and other "new features" of mac os are just that, unpublicised features of windows, linux, other os's and even third party programs that have existed for years.
and neither linux nor windows are perfect, but neither is mac os, and its not better that either that by a long shot and if you cant admit that your an idiot. stop sucking on apples teat and learn something.
f) (And before you or anyone else can even make this stupid out-of-date claim
Macs have been Customizable and Upgradeable in terms of Hardware for OVER A YEAR NOW!!!
oh, and ive only been doing that with windows and linux FOR 20 YEARS. and macs arent behind the times.
