PostPosted: Sat 09 Jun, 2007  Reply with quote

What do you guys think? I just got my new PC yesterday and it works great. But I'm sure that there are some of you Steve Jobsians who care to disagree.

Vista- suxxor or roxxor? whatsthat

Steven Jobsians??
Uh... I go for 'suxxor' at this point in time. Imagine how many bugs there must be in Vista. Nope. I'll wait until it becomes the operational standard for PC users, and not a moment sooner. When I begin to feel like everybody but me is using it, then I will switch smile

Agree. For now, XP still seems like the safest alternative.

Im a Mac user but ive installed Vista to play a few windows only games.

Vista is an improvment over XP definetly. But Mac OSX is still better wink5

Vista is utter crap, Hardly any programs that worked on XP work. Linux is the way to go.

I've always used a Mac and quite frankly I think OSX works a hell of alot better than XP.

Vista hasn't been out long enough to really say much about it.

Windows have always been the first choice by gamers, Linux is the safest, Mac is the... Well I have no idea but apparently it's good, and Windows is the gamers choice.

Mac has no Viruses and is very user friendly.

Yes the amount of games available are limited but we have a few that count like Starcraft, WoW, Warcraft, Diablo, Diablo 2 and more than likely Starcraft2

All systems have no viruses when they are first installed. But depending on what sites you visit, the chances of getting a Virus, Since Windows and Mac are both big-in-use operating systems, Viruses are generally designed for both.

In about a year, I'm going to go to college and get a new computer. Probably a laptop. And also probably a mac.

I've had a Dell with windows forever, and I have friends who have macs. They definitely win.

I have also NEVER seen a single virus on a mac.

So, I will probably never get windows Vista lachgroen

Macs? They're not used by many people, no one I know has a Mac, although more and more people are getting them (although I've never seen one in real life, out of a tv or anything).

But yeah, Mac OSX is waaaay better than Windows. Linux also rocks. Way better than windows and it's free. Only problem is you can't have any software on it that isn't GPL or whatever it's called, I think.

eh What? Macs are used everywhere!!!

While we're on the subject of Macs, I wanted to post this quote from the user agreement for iTunes. I've been wanting to post this here for awhile but there was no suitable topic.

I'm not getting vista until the games require it

on the topic of PC vs Mac, i really think it's preference

But i don't like the mac commercials dragging about how you can "make movies" with it.

First off, just because you have a mac, doesn't mean you can make good movies (or movies in general, you need a camera too lachgroen)

Also, as the old saying goes, "A bad artist always blames his tools". I make moveis fine on PC. Sure there are some problems with using it, but i'm sure i can manage some minor inconveniences (moviemaking is stressful enough anyway, what's a little more? grin

well i guess i kinda started ranting there tounge2 my bad.

yeah i don't have linux and don't really desire to learn it, so meh.

XP is fine for me, so i'm not complaining.
