    The full text from the website was actually a rant against Apple for threatening the satanists with legal action for proudly proclaiming that their satanic website was constructed on an Apple. I therefore selectively quoted to support my own prejudices irrespective of what the source was actually saying.

    Please be assured that my tongue is firmly in my cheek.

    When Safari was in "Beta" I hated it! Now it is a VERY good and stable tool, I even have Windows friends who use Safari and admit it is very well designed.

    Always been a PC man but since the advent of Vista I'm "doubting my possition". My MIL has a great MAC at her house. Last time I visited home I jokingly told her that I was taking her MAC with me when I flew back to WA.

    There was always the control-click. Now with the clickable trackpad on the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros you can also select bottom-right click, bottom-left click or two-finger click. There is also the two-finger swipe to scroll up-down or left-right, which is more than you get with a scroll wheel.

    Don't crossover yet. Wait until we see what Windows 7 brings later this year. It looks like it may get MS back on track and we can forget that Vista ever happened.

    Wow, Brad... how do you really feel? :lol:

    FYI, I'm not sure what you're talking about with Mac stuff being "proprietary". Macs use industry standard RAM and hard drives, and (for most machines) are user-installable and replaceable. Perhaps things were more proprietary some years ago, but that was the case for many PC manufacturers as well.

    Enjoy your PCs. :)

    If my brother in law was on the PB he would vote the same way. He also is an IT pro and PC expert. He actually uses Macs in his work 'controlling' PCs. He is in charge of a nationwide medical imaging network.

    PC.

    Not being in the video production business at the moment, I'm running two PCs, one with Linux(Windows XP gave up the ghost. :() and one with FreeDOS(Underpowered so as to render it safer for keeping in my room. I use it as a journal. :))

    Once I get my act together and start shooting some of my scripts, I have no doubt that I'll start learning to use the Mac in the office. That's what they're there for. :p

    A valid argument, but if one wants to explore open source, a Linux distro is still the way to go. Is there much difference between being in bondage to Mac as opposed to being in bondage to Microsoft?:handshake:

    Y'all are all wrong. The coolest computer right now is my Playstation (one, not two, not three, ONE!!!) I just got BAHAMUT!!!! For Final Fantasy 8! He could melt a PC and a MAC into little globs of plastic and twisted metal! And just in case anybody has any questions, feel free to ask him yourself!

    or

    See that little glob above? Thats a Mac. :lol:


    Well, I guess that settles that! :judge: I guess I'll be a thread killer now, because nobody wants to argue with Bahamut!!

    -----Added 3/3/2009 at 04:04:59 EST-----

    Oh yeah, In case anybody wants to know, Bahamut could roundhouse kick Chuck Norris into next week!!

    -----Added 3/3/2009 at 04:26:58 EST-----

    And just in case there are some visual learners out there...like me...here's a visual...see that monster with the thingies sticking up? He's the new MAC mascot.

    As a programmer, I use Linux. I haven't seriously booted into Windows (i.e., for a serious purpose) in over a month. Specifically, I run OpenSUSE 11.1 with Gnome. :)

    Loved this, by the way.

    As a semi-Luddite, I can't stand Macs. I remember using Apples when they still had little bee icons to go with your mouse cursor and hated it. Give me a PC desktop any day (and there's still enough room in there to put a hamster in a wheel and an AC Delco alternator and power it that way!)

    Unfortunately, as a college student, I am extremely strapped on cash! I really do like the look and feel of a Mac. Linux is about as close to a Mac as I can get right now due to its awesome cost (free!). :) I'll join you Macsters as soon as I can!

    I didn't read all the posts on this thread....but I have to tell you....I've used PC's for about 15 years of my life and this past year I did a lot of research on computers......and I finally got a MACBOOK!!!!!!!!! And PC does not compare to a Macbook in any way!!!! :D

    *Mac battery life is amazing (I could go hours without having to plug it in)
    *Its more energy efficient than any other laptop on the market! (trust me I researched this)
    *Start up and shut down time is roughly 4 to 6 seconds. My brand new Dell Inspirion took literally 75 seconds to 2 minutes to start up.
    *The software is much more intuitive, and FAR MORE responsive than any windows-based computer I've ever used!
    *Mac's use up less space for the operating system, where as Windows takes up more space.
    *You can run more applications on a Mac with less memory than you would on any Windows based product.
    *Also, running several applications at once on a Mac is at lightening speed compared to Windows! I can download several sermons on audio within 5 seconds! (tell me what computer can do that?)
    *Also, Mac's can run both operating systems side by side on the same machine. AND, Mac's actually run Windows better than most Window's based products! (seriously!)
    *No Virus Protection necessary. (yes because we live in a windows-based world, and there are few viruses created for Macs, but also because of the complexity of the OS itself. The way it is designed makes it more difficult to create viruses. With Windows that is not the case.)
    *No problems using Facebook (seriously when I'm on someone else's computer...I always have issues chatting over Facebook, not the case with Mac!)
    *iphoto, idvd, imovie...are all amazing to use! I've never had similar experiences with any windows software!
    *Quality of the laptop is superior! Not only is it asthetically pleasing, but built to be durable as well.
    *Mac's come with a magnetic power cord, to prevent tripping over your cord or having your laptop fly across the room!

    Honestly, once you've experienced a Mac...you would understand what all the rave is about! Its a far superior product In my humble opinion!!!! :2cents:
