I love Apple, much more easier to use than Windows XP and Linux. lol hell of a lot more easier than Linux--and Windows looks very similar to the Mac os realeaed in 2001

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.

Did any of you notice that the video was old, but there is an instance where they show an Apple store, and there is pictures of the new iPod nano on the walls. how can that be when this article is talking about, well the pre-video iPod generations?

I still hold that Mac> Windows with the exception of certain programs like Power Point (Word seems similar in both)

What? The threat from Saddam Hussein wasn't always imminent. Oh god. But seriously, Jonathan Ive is a legend, you can catch a video with him on the old first gen iPod (which still is great) here: http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=TSqNHGJw2q...

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...

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.

ttsec... trying to be intelligent and funny doesn't mix well.

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!

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!?!."

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!

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.

^ 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.

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.

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.

How else would I know whether I inserted a USB?

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.
"You have inserted a disc!"
"It looks like you are writing a ransom note, would you like some help? Use stronger language you'll get more money!"
"It looks like you are trying to shut down a program, Accept or Cancel. It looks like you selected Accept, Accept or Cancel"

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.
