Windows 7: Mac users have the same problems

24 Apr 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

Macs often have fewer issues because they have substantially fewer hardware choices and everything it tightly controlled by Apple. They also have really good support, especially if you have a nearby Apple store. Of course, you pay for that support right up front.

As my sig block has said for quite some time, I don't see any value in buying Apple products. They don't resolve any issues that I have with my current computers.

Windows 7 Home premium 64bit SP1
 
 

Macs are overpriced pieces of software that overprice the hardware that's in the computer and could buy one for less that has windows with the same hardware and capabilities.

and here is a random thing I found that made me chuckle for a sec

I doubt its strictly "legal" according to Apple's EULA anyways. But how else am I suppose to learn the platform? Or test web sites and other stuff which require a Mac. If someone would like to send me an actual Mac then sure. :P

It needs to be on any "Apple branded hardware" if I recall correctly, so just stick on one of those stickers that Apple bundles with everything.

I think Apple would make a lot more money if they let anybody run Mac OSX whether it were on a PC or a Mac or a vm.

That would be an interesting proposition. If I recall right, Snow Leopard sold for $29.95 at BestBuy.

Right now, they aren't selling that much, but if they made a PC platform copy for maybe 60 bucks, that OS would be selling like hotcakes.
