    I made this topic so we can have a mature discussion about the 2 main computer companies: Macintosh and Microsoft (computers). Which do you think is better and why?

    RULES:

    1. Respect everyones opinion
    2. Only constuctive critisism
    3. Talk in a mature manner
    4. No flaming or bashing other members
    5. Stay on-topic.

    **If any of those rules are not obeyed, I will asked for the topic to be locked.

    EDIT: Forgot to say which I prefer: I prefer Macs due to the fact that it has less bugs and has better support for Photoshop & Motion.

    I prefer Windows

    WINDOWS

    Pros:
    Theres more options in a sense of customization
    Faster
    Better access to Games, [Some games are Windows Only]
    Can be cheaper

    Cons:
    More Virus'
    Can be dearer


    Macintosh

    Pros:
    More user friendly
    Can be cheaper
    Better access to Media related programs [I take Media so this is important - Items such as Editers]
    All round easier to work
    They all come standard which is good for Games, You will always have the specs for it

    Cons:
    Bad access to games
    That damn bar everytime you hover over it [:(]
    Seems to crash more even though it doesn't get virus'
    Harder to transfer files
    iTunes isn't as good as Windows Media Player
    It's hard to customise hard-ware [They all come standard]

    All these Points are based on my Personal experience. I prefer Windows although I see how Macintosh can be good :)

    I prefer Macs because I like to design stuff using advanced programs like Motion, Photoshop CS3, iMovie which are all Mac-friendly and easy to use (if you know what you're doing).

    I'll have to with PC's just 'cause that's what I've been brought up with and I understand them so easily :] like, the first time I went on a Mac, it took me about 15 minutes, to figure out how to close a window :/ probably me just having a dumb moment. I suppose, if I had the same knowledge for both Mac's as I did PC's, then I'd probably go with Macintosh.

    I think Apple Are Worried about Microsofts Competition. All these Biast Advertisements, Hell, the other week, all staff in the Apple store had to wear a shirt saying 'Go Beyond Vista' .

    Personally I prefer Windows. Always Will do.
    I find Mac Operating Systems Messy. Although I do love Apples Sense of design.

    I think Mac will Never Catch up to Microsoft. People have just been using Windows For too Long.


    Oh, and FR. Great Thread, But I Assume there'll be plenty of flaming and arguments in the coming..

    We need a Macintosh Revolution, (without the violence) :p

    Yeah, I've seen the T-Shirts, I guess the haven't passed with Vista yet because they are still currently using OS X Tiger. OS X Leopard will be coming out soon with great new features like History (something like that) which allows you to find files that have been deleted. It also comes with a new version of Dashboard w/ new Widgets.

    Remember Microsoft Don't MAKE Computers (As to My Knwoledge Anyway), So how can you compare?

    If you're comparing Operating Systems, How can you say that Vista Isn't stylish?

    Yeah Brendo, Dell design the moniter, Microsoft designs the computer.

    Same w/ Macintosh, Apple designs the moniter and Macintosh designs the computer.
