Ew, Mac lovers I would have never thought. Being a PC is great, so long as you know how, which most don't.

Haven't had any problems with this site, but then I look after my PC (dork). I like to fiddle and tweak and stuff (with stuff other than the UI), which is why I could never own an apple.

@Jerichoholic Josh Get yourself some ad-blocking goodness dude. I don't do ads, so much so I don't even see any on this site.

I've been using Windows since the 3.0 days. I have PCs, Macs, Solaris SPARCs, BSD machines, Linux boxes, and have tried more OSes than you can shake a stick at. I've even written software for most of them. I think I know how to use a PC.

Let me give you some professional advice, free of charge: Macs win. ;)

Totally. I'm a UNIX sysadmin in real life. I do enough tinkering at work. At home I don't want to tweak anything, I just want to read mail, do the web thing and maybe some audio editing and such, hence the Mac. I work with XP -- why the hell would I want to live with that at home? I do still use vi as my editor of choice via the Terminal. Incredible that after all these year Windows still doesn't have a proper command shell...

Oh and get a Mac. Problem solved.

FAIL TTM!
If you want to protect yourself from viruses give Ubuntu a shot. It's free. Or just stick with Windows and actually run stuff. :D

I'd rather not use something that sounds like a wild animal I might run into on safari in Africa. I'll stick with my Macbook Pro. :D

For what it's worth, I just got the fake Your Computer is Infected thing or whatever. I closed it before I read it all.

Odd.

The phrase "Macbook Pro" is an oxymoron. Only nubs use Macs.

What is it with MacLovin? I honestly think they're $h1t, and that's having used many and then wondering how people put up with all the limitations. Plus, they are soo geeky it gives me the heeby-jeebies. Ew, NEVER.

I've been tinkering with PC's since I was 12 (19yrs ago) and I know many IT professionals and an exec who see Apple as a user-friendly stain, good for only DTP and girls. No offense guys but I could never, and shall never exchange money for any Apple product. But they don't need my money, cos there is that many people buying Apple cos they think its 'cool'. Oh how wrong they are.

Rant over, begrudgingly.

I've used PCs and Macs together since 1986 and I'd take a Mac any day. I can boot this thing up in 15 seconds and be finished checking email and the daily news before my PC finishes booting up. And video editing isn't even close. I wouldn't waste another cent on a clunky Windows computer and just setting up my wife's Lenovo Thinkpad last week reminded me how truly archaic they are. Rant offer even more begrudgingly. :P

You gotta admit, these PC vs. Mac discussions are good fun. :D

Well my PC would boot up about as quick as your mac, but yeah, each to there own eh. I wanna rant some more too but it won't get me anywhere, I'll just go punch a wall or something :P

And what's video-editing got to do with anything, that's a software issue, not down to platform choice. Ug! Ok I'm goin'. :)

LOL. Far from it, just y'know, forum's aren't the place to have a proper conversation, as some of the ridiculous threads on this site prove. I do get frustrated mind, with everybody handing cash to Apple when I dislike them more than Microsoft (which is saying something). I know I'm not on my own, I'm just a bit outnumbered, by the masses.

;)

EDIT. I am now turning my PC off, and gonna go enjoy that sun (yup its sunny in england wtf).

Since when do PCs boot up slowly...? Mine takes a few seconds. I use a Mac at work and PC at home. Both have their problems and their strong points.

I've never understood the great divide between users of each. They're just tools. I'm not going to argue about which brand of hammer is the best when pretty much all of them are capable of hitting nails.

I even like some versions of Linux and been thinking about installing it on my PS3. Now that's geek. :)

My PC at work takes close to 30min. to finish booting. It's one of those rubbish small HPs which look like an advancement because they're smaller than the old tower, though the fans still sound like bloody airplane turbines. No doubt it's something to do with the network, but I cannot recall ever having used a Windows machine ever that booted up quickly. I do remember DOS on a 386 being pretty speedy, though.

The idea that a Mac, with a BSD UNIX based OS kernel and a free multi-language development environment is "limited" I find utterly bizarre. Pre-OS X I agree Macs had a lot of issues, but I'll take OS X over any other operating system on the planet for daily use. Not having to work around the operating system (Windows focus lock when opening Preferences or even just reading an email, anyone?) is a huge benefit that I wouldn't give up regardless of cost.

@Adam- I just got something like that. I wasn't thinking clearly and tried to hit their x button instead looking for one on the corner of the tab and it took me somewhere. I saw a progress bar going and clicked out of there. Hopefully they couldn't do anything to my Wii with that.

. I'm pretty doubtful it harms your Wii as most malware are written for Windoze with a few for macs for the time being you Wii should be safe.

My father still trying to figure out why people hate Windowe Vista soooo much when he manages to get it working right.
At the moment he's got Windows 7 beta working & are surprise at the improvements.

@mac users
Just ignore me, its an opinion I formed years ago, and I'm stubborn n stuff. Haven't tried this new fangled OS X, but I'm still sure it doesn't give as much access to the computers innards as XP. That's my deluded pre-conception and I'm sticking with it. Either way, we're both surfing. :)

I guess whatever you like, you like. Which reminds me I've got to renew my Apple certification again when Snow Leopard hits. Sheesh. :)
