    The truth is PC and Mac has it’s own problems. But PC has more games and third wheel mouse… so yeah. 😀

    Enough with the scroll wheel and right mouse button crap. Jesus fucking Christ, OS X natively supports the multi button scroll wheel blah blah as PC. Find something concrete to rag on Mac about. Personally I run OS X and Vista Ultimate on a Macbook. I sure wish I could do the same on a Dell, HP, or any other PC-only platform.

    There’s no need to emulate Mac OS X on Windows. There’s nothing you can do on a mac that you can’t with windows (that anyone cares about, anyway). It’s very telling that so many “mac” users run windows emulators. They have to in order to get access to any decent software.

    Who said anything about an emulator? The intel Macs run Windows natively.

    Decent software eh AlecDalek? yea… like Microsoft Office?… hahahaha… decent… LOL. The only reason that mac users need to run emulators for windows is called backward compatibility. Windows can’t keep up, so naturally, mac OSX needs to provide a way for Macs to hold window’s user’s hands and help them along into the future. it’s not that difficult to understand… PC can’t run Mac OSX because, well, they aren’t as advanced yet.

HUGE COMPANIES LIKE ADOBE MAKE TWO VERSIONS OF THEIR SOFTWARE BECAUSE MACS SUCK AND NOBODY USES THEM!! LOL!! TONS OF MOVIES AREN’T MADE ON WINDOWS, BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE TOO BUSY PLAYING HALO 2 ON WINDOWS VISTA LOL, SO THE HIPPIES USED MACS INSTEAD! LOL. G/L PLAYING HALO 2 ON MAC OSX FAGGOTS!

    really you guys shouldn’t be so jealous just because Windows blows and has been playing catchup for the last 7 years and basically ripping off all of OSX’s features. Is having more games really all you got for your argument?

    Thanks for contributing to the ongoing Mac vs PC debate, surely it will be our generations greatest milestone as new civilizations uncover our threads and view our old TV adds they will no doubt understand why both sides fought so tenaciously to prove their platforms worth…

    It’s always the PC camp that brings this shit up, and perpetuates old myths. Personally I really don’t give a flying fuck either way. I sit in front of a PC every day admining a Windows domain. I use PC’s and Mac’s equally at home utilizing each’s strengths. I also think that ALL computers (those things plugged into that virtual world called the internet) as tools of Satan and they are inherently evil. I realized this one night when the voices told me Heidi Klum is actually a dude and the color red is actually green but the public school… Read more »

    Just out of curiosity, what browser do folks use on Macs? Is there a native browser and does anyone use it? Are you folks using Firefox or something else? -Thanks…

    ArtDecoDalek
    Member

    eric, there are several native browsers. The browser made by Apple and included with Mac OS X is Safari, and is one of the few browsers on the market than can pass the Acid2 browser test (IE doesn’t come close to passing. Firefox v3 passes, but it’s still in alpha). I mostly use Camino, which is a freeware native Mac implementation of the Mozilla engine, which is what Firefox uses. There’s also a semi-native, ported version of Firefox, which is okay, but has a few problems. Other good native browsers include OmniView, Opera, and others, but those cost money. Pretty… Read more »

    ArtDecoDalek – Thank you for the information. That’s what I was looking for. Would you say that most things that render correctly on a PC in FireFox would render correctly on the Mac in Camino and Safari?

    Anyone able to comment on Linux browsers, along the same line?

    Thanks!

    Member

    BatteryLow, that has to be the most long winded non-answer I’ve ever heard. The fact is all the good software that was exclusive to mac, has been ported to the PC (because companies like to make money). There is a massive amount of software and games exclusive to windows. Error401, that’s right, you don’t need an emulator anymore, because apple abandoned the PowerPC processor. The whole point of getting a mac is gone. You now need an emulator to run your old software, and it’s basically just a PC running Unix and an apple branded GUI. It’s no better than… Read more »

    Intel Macs can’t use software designed for older non-Intel Macs? o.O And on the whole PC vs Mac, debate, I’m on Macs side, but both systems have alot of advantages and disadvantages. Like Mac OSs are much more stable and works better than Windows OSs, but PCs are much cheaper then Macs, and can be custom built. And this argument will never end, so why do we even bother having it? PC users should stop bitching at Mac users, and Mac users should stop bitching at PC users. People using Macs aren’t hurting PC users, so stop trying to get… Read more »

    eric, if you get into heavy JavaScript and AJAX, you will really need to test it on a Mac and Linux box, as there are some quirks depending on the platform. If you’re just doing HTML/CSS/PHP type stuff, it should be fine on those platforms in Safari/Camino/Firefox.

Apple made a simple effective system and helped to bring computers to the world. **The world now** Apple. Apple is a company lives by marketing, not be engineering.

    Windows dogmatic sheep, always going for that final dig. Fucking give it a rest already. The more you post, the more you prove that the 1337 windows users are the elitist faggots. Yes, there are some elitist Mac users. I used to be a Mac tech, and I’ve seen the “windows sucks ass and it’s not good for anything” attitude. I’m currently a windows domain admin and I’ve seen users who think that turning off the monitor is actually shutting the computer off (no matter how many times I tell them different), or have no idea what to do when… Read more »

Now I’ll point out the existence of dumb people that use windows and try desperately to draw a correlation.

And as I mentioned I have Macs (actually two in my house right now). Also, why do you ask for references on the things I picked on about Apple but not the things that I said were great? Really, though, I don’t care. Because my point was that Apple is no longer the innovator they were. (Which is sad) Yes, you are right, idiots are idiots no matter what OS they use. I am… Read more »

    The first commercial mp3 player was the Rio by Diamond Multimedia. And I’m pretty sure the first mobile phones (made by Motorola) came out before the mac did, even. Of course they weighed more than the first mac did.

    Ah, the 68000 based macs, those were sweet! I just wish Apple had stayed with the Motorola/IBM/Siemens cpu platform (PowerPC, etc). I loved that chip (I still have an AIX system running with dual PowerPC 604’s). There was a time I agreed macs were awesome. Now they’re just PC’s

    Alec, reread all the comments and try to add it all up for yourself. Don. No, Apple didn’t invent the mp3 player or MM phones, and I fully realize and admit that. I’m just tired of hearing “Macs only have one mouse button” and “you have to use an emulator to run Windows” and so on when these are myths and falsehoods. It is kind of sad that the vast majority of users are entrenched in one camp or the other and can’t (or won’t) admit that the other is just different and may do things the other won’t.

    Error401,
    Honestly I rarely use the macs I have at home (they were given to me, I did not buy them). I feel dirty using them (picturing myself with a goatee wearing a pair of jeans **shudders**)… But I feel dirty using windows too, just not as much.

    If you try out Ubuntu, look at the supported printers before installing. Printers are the Linux weak spot.

    Alec Dalek
    Member

    For most of the time between now and 1984, you did in fact need an emulator to run Windows. Now you just need BootCamp, because they’re not really macs anymore, just PC’s running Unix with a GUI dressed up as a mac. So they’re Linux.

    Alec Dalek

    Fedora is a good distro (in that its easy to install like Ubuntu). However one annoyance with Linux is you usually have to download extra binaries in order to get mpeg and mp3 support (for legal reasons). It’s not the fault of Linux though. At my wedding a couple years ago, I wanted to use my laptop as an automated “DJ”, but I didn’t trust windows to do the job. So I got a spare hard drive and installed Fedora (and the extra bins) and it worked like a charm. One of my friends got married around the same time… Read more »

    Dalek, you are (correct and) sullying Linux with your speech. Apple took a innocent kernel, skipping about in a field, and raped it with a ipod, while Steve Jobs and the Goatee-jeans guy made love in the background. (Which is why running OSX makes me feel more dirty then running windows)

    EvilDon

    I have fedora (6) too. I once used my pocket pc for an automated “DJ” at a wedding. Worked very well.

    **Notices past comments** I really seem to hate Apple’s marketing.

    If you’re looking for a Linux distro, try Slackware 12.0. I was warned against it, being told that it was the least user friendly of all of them. Fortunately I tried it anyway (I was getting frustrated with working on this ancient IBM thinkpad) and it installed GREAT. There are still a couple small bugs to iron out (WiFi and sound) but otherwise it’s running like a champ. I just need to figure out how to switch the GUIs. I know it’s possible, but this is a work in progress and an experiment in slackertude.

    I have tried Slackware. Was not impressed with it…

    Dalek,
    I like both. Gnome for older systems and KDE because it’s a little more versatile. Why do you like it?

    Alec Dalek

    Just for that reason. Gnome is more “pretty”, but I can do more with KDE. But maybe that’s just me.
