TRiidinglo, when was the last tiem you did a virus scan/looked at pornographies, like orgies, gang-bangs, and hot girl on girl action?**
It`s real easy for to get a virus if you use Windows, which 9/10 times you do.

As for the "Most Secure" award, none of you ar right. It goes to Commodore 64, posthumously. A 64 has never gotten a virus. It has a few bugs, but never a virus. There weren`t any tube-like internets,or dick drives to transmit them with.

** Best. Epitaph. Ever.

Stop fighting over Macs and PCs, everyone has their opinion, if they want a Mac, they get a Mac, if they want a PC, they get a PC. They don`t care when others say "PC sucks!" or "Mac sucks!"

The movie was weird...

I got a PS3 from my aunt from Chi-town, and from the fact that I don`t like it (no offense Sony), and I own 2 of the 3 next gen consoles (360, Wii), I`m going to cash it in. :-D

You only get viruses EVER on ANY computer if you are an idiot and don`t know what you are doing. Neither of our PCs have gotten a virus in a really long time, and probably only had one or two small ones in the past five years. So the macs are more secure thing is Bullsh*t.

And I know from personal experience that there is almost no difference between mac/PC for graphical design. If anything, PCs are better. In any case, the software you have makes a bigger difference for that than anything else.

And everyone stop with the freaking HIPPIE TALK! No they are not `just different.` There is always a better one. We can`t all be wonderful friends.

ok, as far as the "macs don`t have viruses but PCs do" crap, here goes.
1) Windows has viruses. How often do you hear about Linux/Unix viruses? You don`t. Why? For the most part, they don`t exist, much like viruses on the Mac. For the most part. They do, on both counts, just very rare.
2)Why are they so rare on Macs and *nix? Yes the system/kernel is more secure than your run of the mill windows system/kernel. Additionally, the user of either is also a little more secure, if you follow my meaning. But further more, the user rate is low. Just like over the past year the security flaws being found in firefox have been going up and opera and safari remains low. As more people use it, more flaws become uncovered. That`s how it works.

FYI, personally I run a dual boot of XP/ubuntu on a PC with booting of DSL off a cd or jumpdrive as I see fit. I browse with FireFox or Opera, using IE only when absolutely necessary.

I don`t get why the whole Mac vs. PC crap has gotten so popular.. Just buy what you prefer and stfu.. Macs are designed for computer illiterate retards, that`s why they put them in elementary schools.. PC`s might have a boring layout but they sure as hell get the job done..

Heres my view

Macs are computers for the people who love to use graphics design, and other visual programs.
They are also good computers for the computer illiterate since their inteface is so easy to use, and the major advantage is that they have no viruses so macs are very great in the aspect.

PC`s, on the other hand are for people who game/program. it is also for the people who know a little about computers, but i have found it harder to teach people on a pc than a mac. they are also good for manipulation and probably are the most software compatible OS` on the market

Linux on the other hand are for computer veterans, and are very good computers to program and mess with. they are exremely secure but the interface is difficult to deal with. but once you know your way around linux you will get hooked to it.

my point is that all OS` have their advantages and disadvantages and arguing about it is a waste of time. Well id talk about this more but im running out of characters.

"let me just do this:
PC > Mac
Intel > AMD
Windows > Apple
ATI > Nvidia

that`ll do for now"

Agreed, but not so much with the last one. Nvidia is pretty good, IMO, but ATI is still good too.

I have been, and probably always will be a PC user (please note that i said PC user and not Windows user). I like the fact that I can personally repair, upgrade, and choose exactly what hardware I want/need. Windows is something that is suffered through. I`ve never had a large issue that I hadn`t caused with my computer, but for utility I use aston. Aston also makes it look pretty.

But anyways, did anyone else think that instead of green, it should have been the blue lightsabre (of death)?

These were the first words of my Ceng 101 Introduction to Computer Engineering teacher :
"Computer is a dumb machine which does exactly what you say!"
Now your homework :
Which length measurement system is better?Why?
1-Metric(SI)
2-Us Standard
3-Chinese(or maybe japenese)
Any questions?

This arguement makes me think of how people in the US don`t want to change to the metric system: they aren`t use to it. The same reason I don`t use a Mac, I`m not used to it.

Quite frankly I don`t care either.

Also, it`s amazing the little tolerance that people have for things that they don`t like. If they don`t like it, nobody else should. Simple as that...at least as far as I see.

Yes, I still have my suit on. Why? lol.

I bet WhereDidItGo is trying to make this an internet explorer vs Firefox argument as well.

As for if you like macs over pc or vice versa,
well you don`t need to argue it here. Everybody is different and likes different things. If people dont like macs it because they`re used to PCs. I for one can never get the satisfaction of right clicking on a mac so Ill stick to PCs

Or Opera, in some cases o:-). No, I`m not on my Wii, but I AM using Opera. (Why? As the Opera Survey says "Because it`s not Firefox." jk jk.)

Oh, by the way, I`m not saying that PC`s are better than Mac`s (even though I like PC`s). I`m saying that we need competition for things to get anywhere.

Common Enth, it’s a computer. You harp about people with no life. Yet here you are, defending a hunk of silicon. (and btw, with out programmers, you would have your Mac OS, which you enjoy so much.)

Besides, I wasn’t saying PC`s are better; I was trying to say that arguing over such trivial things in life is a waste of energy, because like the 64, both will be replaced by better operating systems as technologies evolve.

Save for arguing for politics. ;-)

to get around a unix password is 10 times harder than to get around a dos password...

barrelman, the xbox 360 is good at one thing...catching on fire...

if you are a graphic designer and are using pc, you will take 5 times as long unless you have the most upgraded piece of poo there is, if you have a mac, you can have one of the bottom end macs and still do a better job than most pc`s.

and the best part of the video was, "its the ihouse" "but there`s no windows" "exactly!!!"

Enth, any windows NT based OS is stable. Also, anything you said for mac is true for windows (well except the UNIX bit, but hey, if i wanted unix based, i`d run linux as second OS.

"Vista is a copy of Mac OS"

How so. Windows is still based on NT. If your talking about the GUI, mac copied theirs from a linux GUI. The point is, anyone who says any operating system is better than another is arrogent. They are different, not better.

(and ps. there are always ways around passwords)

I thought the console war was PS3 vs Xbox 360? Or am I just crazy? I`m pretty sure that Wii is netural grounds on the whole console thing.

As far as I can see, this video is going to start World War III. It`s just cause people can`t just use what they want and don`t care what other people say. Instead "MAC IS T3H 1337!! WIND0WZ SUKZ0RZ!!!!!!1!1!" and "WIND0WS RUL3Z!!! etc. etc. etc." Just live with it, the world isn`t going to change just because of what you say.

Ok, I`m done. You may start flaming me. *Dons flame-retardant suit*

I`m just saying, the 360 came out almost a year before either the PS3 or Wii, so it wasn`t the focus as much. All the hype (that I observed, anyway) was about the big battle between Sony and Nintendo.

Really? I thought nobody liked the PS3. Everyone I know has a 360 or Wii. Also, I went to Best Buy a few days ago and they had 70 PS3s by my count and no wiis.

Anyway, I`d say something nice about the PS3, but I can`t think of anything. I`m not a fanboy either, I have a PS2 and like it a lot.

I don`t really care either way. I have a Mac, it`s what I use. If I had a PC, I`d use Windows. It`s just as stupid as the 360 vs. Wii. They`re both good at different things; get over it.

And the only reason why macs don`t have any viruses is because nobody gives a f°ck about them.

Once the hackers unit, the Mac will fall.
