    Yes, because exactly what we need right now is the PC/Mac debate.
    Still, that was sorta funny. At least they can laugh at themselves.

    IMO macs and pcs are just as good as each other.. just depends on your needs. if your a web designer or photographer. a mac is for you. if your a gamer / want upgradablility out its ears. get a windows pc!

    Yeah, ostracod, but if the system is so great and so intuitive, then why the accidents from the people whose job it is to laud the product? Fact is, as tezzanator says, it all depends what you`re after...

    "NOT messups

    not flaws in the operating system, but wrong user input."

    Do you happen to work for them? You basically said "Oh, the system works absolutly flawlessly, just the people behind it dont know what they`re doing".

    Somehow I doubt clicking on Quake III, then clicking Single Player and waiting for it to load is wrong user input.

    Macs are awesome firewood though.

    and about half of them were just him joking and then people laughing...
    I don`t get why people still think that pcs are the best I mean, it`s just common sense, if one product looks like it`s 5 years behind the other one, the one 5 years behind is worse, NOT better.

    Mainly that was ppl not apples screwing up, and take it from someone with a pc desktop and apple laptop; my apple has basically never messed up, my pc on the other hand i`ve had multiple completely unrelated problems at once

    I agree with natkaz though, GO COMMODODORE 64, WOOT!!

    It`s cool that they just go with the flow and don`t get stressed. Although I am annoyed with Apple`s claim that anything that is defective with their technology is not their responsibility. I`ve got an iPod Shuffle, it`s buggy, and I can`t hold them responsible for it. But they`re pretty confident people.

    "It`s awesome when it works!"

    classic.

    they are both better depending on you want. apples werent made to be good at playing games, they were made to look good and have high resolution. that is why it crashed.

    I`m guessing nobody here has seen the microsoft CES keynote from 2004(?) I believe with Conan O`Brien. If you want to see a master of zen, a man`s heart you can not increase the slightest bit, the sheer will and testitude to bring down all of mongolia, then watch Bill Gates when a Windows error occurs. He will sit there as if 18 nude female mud wrestlers just invented the orgasm. That man wouldn`t move an inch if an armed Osama Bin Laden showed up on stage with a truckload of nuclear warheads. You could ignite thermite on that man`s head and he will not so much as give you a glance.

    Bill Gates is a king among therapists.

    I prefer PCs to macs simply because i find the PC interface easier to use, since i was basically brought up on that. Macs are a "school" computer to me. too hard to adapt to IMO.

    "I prefer PCs to macs simply because i find the PC interface easier to use, since i was basically brought up on that."

    That`s what I have found too. Last year at school I was using a Mac in the sound studio and it was all so new. The machines are beautiful, but so hard to use when you`re used to Windows.
