Either windows or Linux...


Macs suck ass. They're only reliable in the feilds of Viruses and such.

Linux is ghetto becuase I used it to hack computers...

But windows blows them all away.

null vote---i hate macs(bad experiences with them and i dont like how they are set up, never used linux(but heard its good), have windows(but it freezes on me alot, but i like how it's set up), and i dont know of an other systems....

I use a mac. Actually macs are the least prone to have virus'. It's just what I'm used to because they are better for graphic art.

BAHAHAHHAA viruses are the biggest problem with windows. cant stand it.

macs are reliable for many many things.
i certainly have less crashes than on windows, and things tend to run more smoothly.



linux is slammin if you know how to use it. it's secure if you know how to use it too.

but
all of your computers suck.

Ok Macs are only useful for music/video editing, or atleast so I see it. Windows is like the equivelant to krylon. People use it, but thats because they dont know better. I prefer linux, I like it the most. I've been using it now for like 4 or 5 years. I do have a couple of machines running windows, but if I use em I run knoppix(a version of linux you run off a cd) on em.

Nah linux is only good for hacking, windows is gd cos most shit runs on it like games and wateva.

really it depends what your using each for..

linux for relaiblilty, server, etc, not so good if your just a home user since you need to configure quite a lot and learn unix commands, if you are a home user and need windows apps there is always wine.

Macs for design and shit, such as movie production, art, website design, etc..

windows for a normal user, a gamer etc..but windows sucks ass for reliability, trojans, viruses but the general public will take it because they know and trust it..which is stupid

in my opinion Linux is king, but it does depend on what your planning to do with your computer so I'm not going to vote.

I use windows, but i would use linux, just my modem don't work with it, not sure if it is a winmoden since it comes up in ther perpriahals list as installed correctly and working fine.

Also, peolpe have this weird idea that hacking from a linux machine is the best way, not so, lot of hackers use linux yes, but only because it is the most reliable os, and it is free.

heh thats genius

linux is my cup of tea. can run anything, tons of open source programs, more control.

i also use windows since it has more support for games. if more developers made stuff for linux i'd switch entirely. when im making games...


i've used all three a lot but i still dont agree that macs have any strength over windows and linux. most people argue that macs are better for graphical shit and some even go so far as to say that mac users are the only type of people who "create things with their computers". bs.

none.

im using windows because its more compatible. it has WAY more viruses though. and doesnt crash that often...

90% of the time the problem is between the chair and the keyboard. remember that.

mac crashes more often.. EVEN WHILE USING IT PROPERLY... yes windows crashes easily... if u fuck things wrong... mac on the other hand even if u fuck something up... its rare u do real damage and is alot easier to trouble shoot and debug.

mac runs faster then ibm compatibles (commonly referred to as pc's) since it has a more advanced processing language. risc instead of sisc... uses 70 commands instead of a 100.. so its that much quicker.

if pc went to risc then the pentium4 chip would blow away the g5 chip...
oh well...

as for linux.. never used it but its of course less virus prone.u cant really compare since linux isnt one operation system... theres tons of different ones... from some that fit on a floppy to full blown standard GUI ones... of course a simple dos style promp OS and a complete GUI arent comparable or as crash resistant etc.

macs are faster. period. as i said its because of their hardware setup... the only pcs u can buy off the market that compete with macs are alienwares... but lol alienwares are complete mods and way more souped up then youre average mac.yet they perform relativly the same.

macs have less BIG crashes... you cant go and delete system files unless you know code. so its more dummy proof... plus if a program keeps on crashing... on PC u gotta reinstall... on mac? delete the preference file. most of the time thats all u need to do...

defrag? never need to defrag on a mac. on pc? its recommended todo about twice a week on a work computer.

so ya macs are lower maintance... and they last longer on average...


as for the creating thing... ahha thats bull... lol... alot of the graphics art industry is switching to pc cuz they cost less... though not quite as good (dont expect to pay 4x less and get something better... the average cheap pc doesnt have a very long life)

and all the 3D industry (or almost) is on PC.. actually its hard to find 3D rendering and modeling software for mac... but until recently it was hard to find good vector or photoediting software for PC... until adobe started making it that is...


so its a long debate... in the end... its compatibility versus security i think. cuz well even with a slower core pc can be made to run as fast as macs... and well wich crashes more... hard to tell...

so in the end facts are:
pc is more compatible.
mac is more secure.
linux is more secure.

the most secure being linux, but also the least compatible.

wtf obviously windows, it runs everything, unlike gay faggoty macs, and can you custom build a macintosh? i think not.
also the only reason macs dont get as many virusus is cause they firewall everything they can and because mac users are pussys and are afraid if they make viruses for other mac users they will get into some kind of trouble

Windows would fuck up for me a lot so I switched to Linux and it hasn't given me any problems. It's cool, when I had windows, I could hop on networks and get free interweb, but then after awhile my neighbors got smart and put security settings up, and when I made the switch to Linux, it bypassed it :D

*Resists urge to smack everything the fuck up.* All this previously posted Linux shit is fucking stupid, "Oh it is so good for hacking, just ignore the fact I use IE, i r t3h ub4 l337 j00 n00b, l0ll3r5k4te5!" Christ. In my past experiances Macintosh, while being stable once running a program is a bit slow for my liking, also there is the whole compatibility. Windows is damn near universal and that is a big plus. But this is also it's flaw, prepare to become a security guru or you'll end up hacked by some script kiddie. I personaly use Linux. It's stable, efficient, and it runs better on my outdated as fuck hardware. But hey what I lack in ram I make up for with a cool case. Yah, that shit is tight.... If you follow the whole, "Adding flames and a tail fin makes my Honda faster" mentality.

macs alllll the way for multiple reasons

i have a mac home pc and im saving for a laptop so im immersed in macs, but ive used other ones so this isnt byist

for all you aspiring artists out there, macs have garage band, the best free beat/song maker ever.
anyone here got a ipod? yep i thought so. itunes is from mac, and itunes owns
viruses? no problemo!
most software theese days has a mac counter part, and besides theres boot camp out now for the intel macs so you can have both windows and mac, on a mac!

ya i know im a huge nerd. so what

Mac is good from my experience, it never gets viruses, freezes or anything of that sort.

Never tried linux, but I heard its good so ill have to try it eventually.

So since I have never tried linux my vote goes to Mac...

Well, here is the lowdown.

I&#39;ve used both Windows and Macs, I&#39;ve used Windows for longer, but currently own and use a Mac ProBook.

If you know how to use Windows, it can be a much better system. Most people dont know how to use them, and end up crashing them all the time. Mac is more idiot proof, but hence you can not do as much on them. They are less compatible with alot of software types. So, I like some things about each system. But since I know how to actually use Windows well, I guess I prefer it more. Mac is almost too simple for me, I like some complexity.

but i absolutely HATE windows......

WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?
no way..... the osx os is developed to more efficiently handle multiple tasks without overbearing the cpu and memory buffer. not to mention it better stacks tasks to prevent crashes and malfunctions. hence macs are more stable and thus provides a better tool for developers and producers. most producers (movies and music and games) use mac because their processors are fast and the hardware reliable...... windows is underdeveloped and buggy. why do you think they recalled xp for the first few months of the release and took so long with the vista beta..... because it doesnt efficiently use the hardware.

windows is already ripping off mac. but mac ripped off some other company so whatever.

windows is nice if you like tons of viruses/spyware/adware/etc. most p.c.&#39;s are unable to even run vista, while the cheapest imac is able to run vista and osx.

but i don&#39;t really know too much on either subject so disregard this post. i prefer macs.

05-08-2007, 10:37 PM
Mac all the way, and Im a PC user and always have been.
Once I began how to actually use a Mac properly, and learnt what they are really about, you soon see which is the greater operating system.

And the only thing people usually gripe about with macs is that they are incompatible.
Well now they run windows so that issue is out the window.
Why would anyone want to buy a PC apart from if they are a gaming nerd loser?
Macs do everything PC&#39;s do but better, and if they can&#39;t do it, then if worst comes to worst you got windows installed on it to finish the job.

Windows is SHIT.
vista is SHIT, i know I have it.
MacosX tiger is beautiful efficient stable and basically everything windows isnt.

hence why im here doing just that....

i havent used linux but i dontthink i have the patience to use it...
so this battles down to mac and pc

and i gotta use both for various things
i choose windows
i use macs for editing videos.... AND I FUCKING HATE THEM... those fuckers lock up everytime i do something in final cut.... its retarded trying to find fuckin files... I HATE IT

meanwile windows i love...i dont get problems with it except the occasional spyware when im downloading porn....
maybe thats cus my uncle has been working for IBM for about 15 years and i know my way around a pc better than anything....

but i do all my music editing and production on a windows... im starting to use avid on windows.... photoshop on windows...
o and macs suck if your into playing games.... but then again i got a 600&#036; computer from sony that plays all the games i want it too (yes think of it as a computer... its more powerfull than most of yours)

no way..... the osx os is developed to more efficiently handle multiple tasks without overbearing the cpu and memory buffer. not to mention it better stacks tasks to prevent crashes and malfunctions. hence macs are more stable and thus provides a better tool for developers and producers. most producers (movies and music and games) use mac because their processors are fast and the hardware reliable...... windows is underdeveloped and buggy. why do you think they recalled xp for the first few months of the release and took so long with the vista beta..... because it doesnt efficiently use the hardware.
fuckin macs new os got pushed back too
stop bitchin about why shits delayed its ignorent

star wars episode 3 and crash are both movies made in AVID on a WINDOWS PC

every producer in philly i know uses windows

if you got the money you can make your windows pc faster than explosive diahreah

imo the best thing you can do is build your own pc i personally have spent over 4 grand on my pc cuz im a gamer myself but as far and a regular based computer i would go with linux

ther is alot of other people do not know about such as FreeBSD and Ubuntu

which are the shiiiiiiiittt if you know how to use them
