    Ugh, again?? lol
    It's been done before. Too darn often IMO
    This topic starts about "please help me" and moves off topic to mac vs windows

    And then there's Ozzy's "help me pick a cheep pc" where it (again) goes off topic to "Windows suck get mac" blah blah....

    what are you using now?

    IF you are using a mac keep with it, if you are using a Windows, get a MAc with the new Windows feture. It just depends on what you want to do now...

    I would stick with windows IF it was me...
    Cheers

    i prefer windows to Macs. my wife hates Mac's with a passion, infact we are an odd duck in the Montana Newspaper Assosiation in that we are one of very few to be PC based instead of Mac, most newspapers run Macs cause Adobe's software started out with Mac only and thats what most newspapers have always run, Adobe prouced software so they started with macs and everytime they upgrade they upgrade their Macs. while i prefer Windows operating system i hate IE.........ever since i downloaded Mozilla Firefox ive been much happier it works better.

    i understand there are advantages that go with Macs however i much prefer my familiarity with windows over the few benifits switching to a Mac would get me, besides the wife would kill me if i switched

    Question

    Don't sweat it! It's no worse than any of the other repetitive things we get. Like "My VFT's leaves/traps are turning black. Is my plant about to die?" Don't know how often I've seen that or similar over the years. As for the Mac/PC debate, Mac has something windows doesn't: Drosera!

    Read about it on the listserve this morning:
    WebKit Tools for Mac

    Just one more reason for us CP enthusiasts to switch to Mac!

    You may as well check out the other debates/discussions. My personal pref is dual boot on a PC. Despite what MAC and other commercials would have you believe

    PC does not = Windows

    I like using Linux because its open source, is reliable and does almost everything I want. There's an amazing amount of open source software for you to get in to, often outmatching or outpacing commercial software. I can find open source programs that aren't marketed, for instance. The one thing I can't do is play certain games. Though some games can be coerced to working in linux or are being made to work in linux, it's simply easier for me to have the choice every time I turn my computer on of booting in to windows or linux. This way I can play my games, but if I get sick of windows, then I've got linux for everything else.

    I've given up, it's just a stupid debate unless you add in guidelines. In order to have a debate, we can have an entirely extensive one saying what's good/bad about each, but I chose to accept the downsides of each, but not be limited by them.

    Operating systems don't need to be a war, I prefer to make them serve their purpose: they work for me, I don't have to work (and debate) for them. And life is happy (for the most part.)
