I love windows, Macs feel... Locked up er somethin'.

Macs are way to expensive, like you may think, "There only expensive because they are way better and faster and stuff like that."

but I'm guessing Mac users have not spent the value of a Mac on a PC. If You do you can get an amazing PC, you just gotto know what parts to buy, and put them together.

There are a lot of pros and cons to both, but what kills mac for me is the fact that it lacks so much software compitability compared to a PC, and that I'm so used to a PC, and have never gone wrong with it.

It's a matter of tastes, really, each one of them have a different advantage between each other.

From my point of view, PCs are just compatible with everything and are reliable if you know what you are doing. I have had a windows 95,98,XP and Vista comps/Laptops, and they have run extremely well, specially my current laptop which has what you would call "crappy OS" (Vista). Macs are just really cool and a great option if you want something else rather than windows, and for what I know and I have seen, they are superior at handling graphics, so they are best suited for people that design stuff. And finally Linux (even if you didn't even mention it), Linux is just kinda hard to describe, it's great, but it sucks at the same time. It's the best thing in the world to handle servers and  private OS administration, among other things. However, you need to spend a really good amount of time learning how to handle everything as well as coding in order to make stuff compatible with the OS, and still, most stuff will be incompatible, specially games and applications (mac has the same problem, minus the coding, but it's really catching up fast). It's also free (most of the versions are free anyways) and really light. Did you know that windows 7's kernel uses part of linux?

Anyways, even if marketing and the internet tell you that one is better than the other, at the end, it's just a software that administrates your hardware, and really depends on your needs instead of crazy "OMG, I WIN, I HAS LINUX/WINDOWS/MAC |D"

Hehe I think you win if you have em ALL.

I gots 2 outa three.

I find that all the essential graphic and design programs are on both mac and PC though. Linux I have no idea of anything about it...

I guess Macs are good for people who don't know how to use computers very well, but I dunno, PC everything is kinda obvious...

I think that Computers should be like the applications, the most well renowned applications are the ones that run with a bunch of plug ins, allow freedom. I think the computer should be that way to, customizable, which is one of the many reasons why I like the PC.

I have yet to try out a Mac, yes I have been living under a rock my entire live, that rock is labeled a PC.

Meh, I don't really care, as long as it can play games, bring me to the internet, and give me some form of entertainment its good in my book.

Just buy whichever one you want, then install Gentoo on it :P

Macs are for creative people alike, not for people who don't know how to use a computer. Where did you get that from?

What if the Mac only has Windows installed on it? :P

I mainly prefer Windows for a few reasons, if you know what to do, you can make Windows do most anything, it's the main platform fir games, ID is one of the few who still support Linux gaming.  PC has stability so long as you have decent drivers and don't abuse anything, only time anything has ever frozen was if I abused it, had a problem with it already, or it was Windows Media player (WMP sucks, VLC Media Player FTW) Also, Windows main problem is driver issues, here's a fix, don't use homebrew drivers.

Also, PC means "Personal Computer"  not Windows.  If your computer runs Mac OS X, it's still your personal computer.  Remember, it's Windows, not PC, they don't make PC OS.

I say this because you can do anything you can do on a Mac just as easily on a PC if you know what your doing.

Haha there we go.

Although just to see the downfall of what I'm saying, I'm interested in what you say,

i prefer the macs for one reason, i love the 3d modeling, and the macs are perfects for that.

Whats the 3d modeling program for the Mac, er does it use Maya er whats so perfect about it?

Maya, Autodesk ImageModeler, maybe more I'm dunno, i just use the 3d modeling as an example of why i prefer mac's, and is because they are more oriented to design side, handled well the graphics, memory, and sometimes are more faster than a PC.

are for creative people alike, yes your right foxer, I'm wiht you on that , but that thing you told about that is not for people how don't know use a computer if you're talking about the internal components, you're right but if you don't then I'm not agree, most of the time the mac OS, is easy to handle and treat you like if you don't know anything. is more complicated to handle Linux because it treats you like a super programmer, when you install things.

You can run Windows on a Mac

You can run OS X on a PC

You can run Linux on anything

Why do people still "lol, you're using a _____, you suck" all the time? OS Fanboyism doesn't matter anymore.

Why, because it leads to a debate, which can be fun.  :) and it's a learning experience for both sides. The way I see it's like a team game the mac side competing to see there votes get higher, an the Windows (Which is the bestest) trying to get the votes to there side, I do recall clicking the allow people to change vote check box.

"As said by someone earlier it's all a difference of opinion," but who's opinion will crush the others, that's the question.

"You can run Windows on a Mac" Then isn't it Windows? Hm

"You can run OS X on a PC"      Then aint it a Mac?

"You can run Linux on anything"  Then it is Linux.

Similar to what Mr K said, my biggest issue with any OS is the crowd it attracts. I'm a PC guy, both for work and games, it's what I know. However, Mac fans are nearly always snooty, stuck up pillocks who bang on and on about how exclusive and better their mac is. They will usually mention iPods too these days as if that's relivant.

And yet there is a PC program called SharePod that enables you to put and take songs from your iPod without having iTunes mess with it.

I'm well versed on how to run both. I own a Mac, and my school's computers run on Windows.

I don't mind using either, but I just prefer using a Mac, seeing how that's the OS I was raised using. So I'm just more comfortable with it.

I can't say anything about a Mac, I've never used one, but I prefer using Linux because of speed and stability :)

I don't care for non-windows OSs because I was raised on Windows, I also like that start bar look, which is why I DON'T want windows 7.  I've never really gotten to see Linux, and hate partitioning.  So I'm stuck with Windows, I use OS X whenever I got to some classes down in Iowa City that teaches making movies and other stuff,  and even then, I was confused on how to close stuff.
