    this guy`s work is amazing. the only thing stopping me from buying a mac are its price/power and a complete lack of customizeability. i can build my one pc thats twice as powerful for half the price.

    If he didn`t work for apple, they would be dead.

    I don`t like apple. The designs are often sweet, but poo, I don`t want to pay 500-2000$ more on a product with a crappy operating system if I could just buy/build a normal one.

    Didn`t Apple steal the idea with that wheel that Ipod`s using from Creative?

    Apple may produce good looking things, but the hardware is usually worse than melted poo.

    Apple designs are ugly. They look like kids` toys. I want something that looks aggressive and dangerous, maybe possibly even able to kill people, like that folding gun a while back.

    At one point in my life, I used Windows, Mac, and Linux on a daily basis, until I couldn`t stand what a piece of crap Mac was, so now I use Windows and Linux on a daily basis.

    I have Mac OS 10.4 and Windows XP (and my PS3 runs on Linux). It feels nice running a computer without constant shutting down and pressing Alt+Ctrl+Del. I only use Windows with Power Point (iLife looks better than Microsoft Office but since no one has iLife it would be pointless to use it).

    Also I find Macs are more complicated than Windows.

    I`ve had my Windows XP Professional Edition x64 with SP2 running for multiple months straight before with no crashes. During those months, I used the system intensely, running 3D rendering, image editing programs, sound editing programs, resource-intensive games (like COD4), server applications, word processors, multimedia applications, etc..., and it didn`t crashed. The only reason I`ve shut down or restarted my Windows system was out of my own choice because I needed to install/upgrade hardware or move my computer.

    I`ve run Linux for SEVERAL months straight without crashing as well, running intensive stuff like that in the above list for Windows.

    I don`t understand why people say Windows is unstable. Maybe they`re just not doing something right. If you keep Windows well maintained and configured, it shouldn`t have stability problems.

    1. I had my windows custom made
    2. I have McCafee Site Advisor (Warns you what sites are known to have adware. Any site can get hacked and get adware but it gives you an idea of what websites to not go to.
    3. Virus Programs

    Still crashes quite often. Maybe your the exception but all Windows I`ve had crash often (from 95-XP). Linux are Unix based so they are less likely to crash.

    ^ Maybe he went cold turkey on his IAB addiction. It takes a lot of courage to do that. Courage that I don`t have.

    I think to help Windows not crash, there`s a list of software that you should never run on Windows. Anything made by the company that makes Real Player shouldn`t be run. Neither should anything by Apple be run on Windows. Apple software works well on Apple systems, but they screw up on Windows systems. Also, never run Internet Explorer. Firefox is the best alternative to IE. Also don`t run Outlook. Don`t run Yasu. Oh, when I say don`t run, I mean don`t even install it if you can. Of course, you can`t uninstall IE.

    Also, a computer crashing may not have anything to do with software or OS. If your RAM is damaged or Hard-drive is damaged, you will have lots of crashes. Lots.

    The problem with non-Apple computers is, unless you built it yourself, hand-pick the hardware yourself, install the hardware yourself, and test the hardware yourself, it will probably have inherent or potential hardware problems. Places like Best Buy hire people off the street to assemble computers. So you`ll more likely to have hardware problems (leading to software stability problems). Also, because of the large variety of hardware available to non-Apple computers, unless you handpick the hardware yourself, you never really know what you`re getting. For example Best Buy will list a 1GB DDR RAM, but they don`t tell you the brand and manufacturer. RAM manufactures include OCZ, Mushkin, and Corsair, just to name a few. Chances are, a computer from a place like Best Buy gets RAM from the cheapest and most unreliable manufacturer. Same for hard drives and everything else.

    If you choose the right hardware and assemble them carefully, and install the right software for your computer, you`ll end up with a system better than an Apple. If you choose the wrong hardware and software, you`ll end up with a system crappier than an Apple. A non-Apple computer offers you many many varieties of hardware and software, ranging from defective / computer-crashing ones to very stable, reliable, and effective ones. Apple offers the average, kind of, but that`s because it`s very narrow in the hardware and software it allows, and none of them are exceptionally good, but also not exceptionally bad.

    If you don`t know what you`re doing, you should find a someone who knows to built your computer for you. Preferably someone you can trust and not a stranger from Best Buy. Then you`ll end up with a good one better than any Apple.

    Maintenance is also important, and so is cooling. An overheating computer will crash a lot. A LOT!

    I have used both PC and Mac for many years. Personally, I don`t see why there had to be an ultimatum. I like Mac because, in my opinion, the OS is much more fluent and very nice to work with. I like Windows because of the amount of customization that can be done to it. I`ve been an unofficial IT tech for 4 and a half years now, ever since I got a mac. I maintain both Mac and PC computers, and while I will admit that Mac will crash or freeze more often than PC, even if properly maintained, an improperly maintained or configured PC will be she crappiest of crap. Of course this is based upon my own experience, and I welcome anyone to rebut with their own experiences or knowledge. However, please, no little 12 year olds going "OMGZ TEH PC UBER PWONS TEH Mak... IT CAN HAXXORZ UR SEHT 100 TIEMZ A SUCUND!!!1!!!one!?!."

    I personally hate all computers, they`re all crap... I hate using them, they suck, my mind is so much better. I am only on them because the voices in my head tell me to. Trust me, they`ve threatened to go down to my neck and break it. They didnt always used to be this way, until we found MSN messenger, and got bored with talking to each other. However, if it becomes unavoidable that i have no access to a computer, they turn my mind into a computer. I start hearing various songs, which is highly entertaining until they mess with each other and keep changing them. I also get an unlimited number of fun games, and pron... and pron games >.> I also can enjoy many videos, write papers (although sadly the printer doesn`t connect) do complex math, and even surf the web. (Yes I can surf the internet in my mind, and yes it somehow is the real internet, I cant post though)However, a slinky has just caught my eye, and the voices are tellinging me to move, so farewell.
    PS: Help me!

    Windows is made by a company, tested by a company. Apple OS is based on UNIX, tested by the world. Its obvious that apple would have the more solid and the empirically tested OS.

    Yeah, ttsec, I tried building a computer once. After picking out the parts (Athlon FTW!) I found that the cost savings I would have had was nullified by the price of the Windows OS.

    That, and I think I fried the motherboard when I was assembling it. Damn carpet... damn static shock... >-(

    Macs are amazing by the way. Not only do I have Mac OSX on it, I can also boot it up with Windows Vista as well as open Windows XP in my Mac OSX. Now all I have to do is find some way to install linux with Parallels, and I can die a happy man. Thank god for a 250GB hard-drive.
