Ha, who uses linux ;)

ftfy

A majority of game servers are run on Linux due to it being open source, and I recall it was great overall at handle RAM. Also scripting and programming. I think.  :salbrow:

^Linux is major OS on big scale computing but not so much with end users. As one of "them" (Linuxers) I kinda wonder.

Ha, who uses a mac? ;)

People engaged heavily in the media industry; journalists, photographers, illustrators - in some cases animators.

Of course not a necessity, some companies still go with PCs for work. The thing is that Windows is an OS that is developed for ALL hardware which can make it sluggish at times, where as Mac is developed for the hardware you get in the box thus making it more optimized.

They both have their ups and downs, it just depends on what you're looking for.

All these programs that you say different people need is way better to have on a pc.

Overpriced Mac or an awesome PC, the choice is easy.



@Judedeath, I thought editing quotes were against the forum rules...?

There is not only Win and Mac on this Battlefield. Eventually everybody will submit to power of Penguin.

Actually, the adobe package was developed better for the Mac OS than Windows, with the Mac architecture in mind.

Macs are overpriced for a reason. You get a computer that works like it should, and never crashes. PCs are cheaper, but you always run the risk of crashing and losing work. Macs are fast. PCs are clunky.

Thus not saying "PC is worse". That'd be hypocritical of me. But both have their ups and downs. The choice is easy only if you know what youre looking for.

Either you buy an expensive Mac, or an expensive PC.

Or build yourself a computer with your own OS.

I don't know about you but I've had more crashes on a mac then I've ever had on a PC(I'm talking full crash, blue screen that kind of stuff, not programs.)
Old River was as dead as a doornail, this must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am about to relate.

Macs don't blue-screen though.
Nice try.

And no, that's not a "Macs never crash" argument, that's a "Macs don't crash like that" argument.

Related: my Mac gave me a blue screen of death. What is this bs.

That's right there on the shoutbox. XD Anyway, that's not what he was arguing. I think he just meant full crashes in general.

This is what I responded to.

Yeaaaaaaaah, don't go overboard on the rules. Everyone seems to be doing their own thing nowadays (i.e. rule 1 and 2) which is really okay, if you think about it, the place remains a chill place to hang out and the only nemeses are bots (and perhaps that NOANOBU* guy who disappeared into the shadows).

I mean, Jesus Christ, even I'm breaking rule 1 and 2 with this post. What the hell. /endderailing

Well that's pretty much a rule now, right?  :mimihat:

I think he just meant crashes that cause you to reboot the system rather than just blue screen, since the blue screen of death is part of Windows.
