Help my GF with her school project. MAC -vs PC

Recommended Posts

Dear Oontzers, help my lady out by answering these couple questions below...

 

Props will be given and junk.

 

I have a favor to ask of you. I need to collect data for a school project and have changed my focus to the Mac vs. PC debate. Bojangles (PC) and I (Mac) had another one of our "colorful" conversations about this subject last night and I decided to use it as the basis for a visualization project I am working on. I would love your help, so if you could respond and answer these questions I would greatly appreciate it!

1. Do you own a Mac or PC? (If both, pick one)

2. Give me 5 reasons why you love it

3. Give me 5 reasons why you hate it (For example, I LOVE my mac, but I could name some reasons why it frustrates me as well)

4. If you won a contest and the prize was buying the computer of your choice, would you buy a Mac or a PC?

5. Your age (or range if you prefer)

Mac is fancy UNIX BSD.

They charge fancy money for the fancy GUI

Linux is a free operating system. You can give

Linux the OSX GUI. I have yet do do so but plan to.

Being that Mac is UNIX it is file oriented.

Windows constitutes some 92 or 93 pct of the

market. Mac is like 6 pct or thereabouts. Mac

is more secure insofar as it has UNIX underpinnings

and windows is attacked more. Thats where

the payload is... the 90+ pct

I have a Imac and a PC. OSX Snow Leopard & windows 7 ultimate

I like them both in terms of usability. I dislike Microsoft because

they would like to and have been tryin to buy Linux patents to

phaze out the op system.

I hate that you have to pay for Mac and i hate that you have to pay for

Microsoft. Besides that Windows 7 isnt a bad product and OSX is

very user friendly.

If i had a choice between the both. The mac or the PC i would take the

pc and load Mint on it.

Im late 20s

1. PC, use a mac for some work.

2. Love my PC because:

 

- I know my way around better; it feels easier to mess with.

- CHEAPER.

- Supports stupid shit like GTA san andreas that i can play when i'm drunk.

- Everyone in my line of work uses Microsoft office,

- I like the OS better.

 

3. Hate it because:

 

- Susceptible to viruses no matter how much antispyware/etc i have

- It's not "cool"

- Dell's warranty shit is terrible.

- For design/photography/artwork, you need to have a mac.

- I dunno.

 

4. I'd probably buy a pc and throw a different OS on it like linux/ubuntu.

Who the fuck downloads porn? what is this? 2008?

 

also: i feel like people should stop using the phrase "less susceptible to viruses" because it's provably not true. They get viruses. It's just that since they only have about 5% of the market share not enough people are specifically trying to attack them. But trust they are VERY SUSCEPTIBLE to viruses.

 

The best way i heard it described was "PCs are like a house in a bad neighborhood with 30 locks and gates on the window and macs are like a wide open house out in the boondocks"

mac is good for some things. Good for creative people.

Video editors, design and all that. Good for pron browsers

good because its a quality product.

 

What pisses me off about mac. It doesn't always recognize or

work with windows file extensions. Their read only NTFS used

to piss me off alot till i found a work around

 

Windows is good in a business environment. Active directory, Server

2K8. They have built an empire around the fact they deliver solid

business solution. I dont like how hyper vigilant i have to be to

avoid viruses and shit like that. I dont like that i cant see the

source code. I dont like paying for software.

1. Do you own a Mac or PC?

I own a Mac.

 

2. Give me 5 reasons why you love it:

-Lightning fast

-Mac OS doesn't take up half of your HDD

-Very user friendly

-Rare to get viruses

-Battery Life

 

3. Give me 5 reasons why you hate it (For example, I LOVE my mac, but I could name some reasons why it frustrates me as well)

-No obvious right click, although it does have one

-Have to make sure every program you download has .dmg instead of .exe (which a lot programs come in .exe)

-I can't name five, sorry.

 

4. If you won a contest and the prize was buying the computer of your choice, would you buy a Mac or a PC?

Mac, definitely. Without a question.

 

5. Your age (or range if you prefer)

19

 

 

As a side note, I LOVE the Mac OS because I can run windows, natively, in another window; which proves to be extremely helpful. Parallels makes it possible. If you own a Mac and don't have it, get it ASAP. This is preferably for computer geeks, but I'm sure they've got it already.

 

THANK YOU BASED GOD FOR PARALLELS.

1. PC

2. Available software & games, wide availability of hardware from a variety of manufacturers, hardware components are relatively priced, software suites such as Microsoft Office, hd porn

3. malware/viruses, security of software and OS itself is an afterthought usually fixed in a patch well after the software has been released, doesnt attract hipster birds, no virtual desktops, hd porn

1. PC

2. I can build my own hardware setup, fine tuning parts that are interchangeable every 8 months when a better piece of hardware is released, thereby allowing me to be at the top of the curve, so to speak. PC's can be inexpensive if all you need is a crtain function performed (eg, the internet, checking email). PC's can also be beefed up to handle quad GPU gaming and pixel bandwidth that would make your moms panties wet.

3. Driver updates are a pain, Windows as an operating system sucks because it is proprietary, the fact that all games are ported to PC rather than Mac. PC has a learning curve - actually this is a plus, as it weeds out the casual computing enthusiasts instead of coddling them like Ma0cintosh has done so successfully. Is that 5?

4. PC, an Alienware of course.
