Why I dislike Apple - Page 4  

post #121 of 156
Has anyone ever heard of 'less is more'? Or how about 'quality, not quantity'? These little diatribes are the most wordy and useless things I've ever read. Everyone in here is bored of reading them, and the sad thing is that they can be summarized in about a paragraph. We allll get it!

Do you really think >80% of all computers will be replaced in 2007?

Again, not my Numbers, these were taken off of Informationweek. Anyways, I can see it happening because 1) I still see flaming idiots who know absolutely nothing about the Mac but hate it as much as they can and 2) There are people, believe it or not, who are looking forward to Vista and 3) Many PCs sold this holiday season came with a Voucher for a Free or Reduced Price upgrade to Vista.

All windows-versions before proved the opposite.Sorry, but as far as i can see, very few Macuser need Windows and install. A few more of the switchers need it temporarily. But I can't see how anyone would buy (BUY!) Vista to install in Bootcamp or Parallels. This will not bring much cash to ballmers hands. And the switchers who feel a little safer in buying a Mac, now that it does windows as well, will soon realize they don't need no more windows.They do desperately. The market is changing. Microsofts only way to get people to use Windows is by preinstalling it on every pc. Hardware vendors are more and more pissed to depend on a crappy outdated and slow system.

You know something, I thought this too, but I am surprised by the number of Mac Users I see who do use Boot Camp and/or Parallels. Anyways, you assume that Windows PC Manufacturers can easily drop Windows. The problem with that theory would be simple ignorance on the part of the public. Many people buy PCs just to play games, which is odd considering the Console market is a much better place to look in my opinion, and on the other hand, businesses use and rely on Windows. Microsoft owns the Enterprise market, and that is good for no one.

I think in the next 5-10 years most hardware companys like hp and dell will use linux-distros with their own window-manager and gui to give people a better experience and have more control like Apple does. I strongly belief Microsofts management is scared to death by this -- or they don't even see this yet coming.

HP is currently the largest Linux computer manufacturer, and that's not a very large market for them. Lenovo is sticking Linux on their notebooks, but so far it's only experimentation. If the market proves large enough, then yeah this will happen. But it's literally impossible to go from 95% of the market one minute, to nothing the next because of Linux. Given time, Linux could probably dominate, but people are predicting OpenSolaris will surpass Linux in the community, and personally I don't see anything all that great about Linux outside of the Server market. The Ecosystem that I see whenever I glance at Linux kind of sucks. I could be wrong, and I haven't dropped the money for Parallels to try Linux yet, but it's already complicated just when you start out. What distro should you get, GNOME or KDE, so on and so forth. There is also the slight problem that many people don't bother with Linux or Mac, even if they don't like Windows because they don't want to learn something new, or the other slight problem that some don't know about the Mac or about Linux.

I apologize for my bad english. I'm not a native speaker. But I know what I'm talking about, concerning computer history and the market.

No apology needed, I got your message clear
I'm sure you probably know the market better then I, but before proving me wrong, make sure I'm the one to prove wrong. I know Vista will be a success because Microsoft dominates the market, the reality of that sucks, but so do the people who hate the Macintosh for no good reason. I don't even think Microsoft is Apple's true enemy, they compete in the OS arena but it's not even a fair comparison because the only one who makes the Mac is Apple. Meanwhile there is a Garden Variety of Microsoft OEMs, and that is where Apple's true competition lies as a hardware company. It's not about beating Microsoft, it's about beating Dell or HP.

Damn it! If only these generators had been around in 1978 when I was in my last year at University, I could have completed by final thesis in minutes instead of having to give up partying and drinking for the last few weeks.

Shit! I forgot there were no web sites to go to then!

Hell! Just realized, there were no internet providers then!

Crap! I had no ethernet card in my Mac!

Holy Moly! I had no Mac!

Jeez! What did I do? How did I write my 30 page thesis?

Oh, yes I remember now, my sister in-law typed it for me after I paid her... phew, I was worried there for a while.

I don't understand why Infoweek would say that. Past history showed that it took about three years for Windows XP to account for more than 50% of all Windows installations. The IW numbers would also have to assume that most businesses would convert but I can't think of an incentive to upgrade all the machines right away. I had even worked for one major company that waited until Windows 98 was available before switching from Windows 3.11. Many businesses don't replace their computers any more than once every three years, and that's often the time that they consider an OS upgrade.

I've reached a point where I feel the need to express my disappointment with Random Complaint Generator. Let me get to the crux of the matter: We must work together to present a clear picture of what is happening, what has happened, and what is likely to happen in the future. What can you do to help? For starters, you might want to put to rest puerile and complacent machinations such as Random Complaint Generator's. I personally derive great satisfaction in doing that sort of thing because Random Complaint Generator motivates people to join its band by using words like "humanity", "compassion", and "unity". This is a great deception. What Random Complaint Generator really wants to do is perpetuate harmful stereotypes. That's why Random Complaint Generator says that it is not only acceptable, but indeed desirable, to turn the trickle of libertinism into a tidal wave. That's a stupid thing to say. It's like saying that it is its moral imperative to exploit the feelings of charity and guilt that many people have over the plight of the homeless. Random Complaint Generator's dishonest personal attacks convince me of only one thing: that mass anxiety is the equivalent of steroids for Random Complaint Generator. If we feel helpless, Random Complaint Generator is energized and ramps up its efforts to feed blind hatred.

That has to be the funniest thing in the world I have ever read in my life. Kudos SDW2001.

And to clear things up at the beginning... Apple's top of the line 'G4 Towers' as well as the 'G5 Towers' Weren't called that by Apple, they were called Power Mac G_.

And I personally loved the G5 Cube (Not actual name, I just like calling it that because its the only cube computer I know of )

EDIT: I guess the G5 didn't come in a cube flavor... it was only a G4... My animation class lied to me!
If there was a G5 cube someone show me where so I can get one I don't expect to see a Mac Pro Cube any time soon and the lil iMac G3 isn't cutting it anymore :P

And to add to the current conversation, I use Boot Camp and Parallels for only 3 reasons.
1. Gaming. F.E.A.R. isn't available for Mac OS at all, and most likely won't be, same for Battlefield 2 and all the other games I play.
2. HTML Coding tests. Microsoft discontinued Internet Explorer for Mac, so I have to use it for internet explorer tests or I'll fail my college classes
3. Diablo II LOD Character editors. Ones for Mac I've found are HTML only, and suck.
3.1: Yes. I'm lame, I still play D2LOD, but its okay cuz I'm playing with my girlfriend

Holy crap this thing is fun as heck!

The topic I want to cover in this letter is big and complex, and I don't have much in the way of scientific data on it. Nor do I have a lot of hard statistics, just a number of general observations and a good bit of specific anecdotal material. Here's the story: I, speaking as someone who is not a bumptious chiseler, wonder what would happen if Mr. AjayBot really did displace meaningful discussion of an issue's merit or demerit with hunch and emotion. There's a spooky thought. Though I don't doubt the depth of his sentiments, it's rather the form of his expressions that I find both voluble and villainous. His perceptions are an icon for the deterioration of the city, for its slow slide into crime, malaise, and filth. Mr. AjayBot's thralls are unified under a common goal. That goal is to reduce human beings to the status of domestic animals. Stand with me, be honest with me, and help me demand a thoughtful analysis and resolution of our problems with Mr. AjayBot, and together we'll turn his harebrained sentiments to our advantage. We'll follow through on the critical work that has already begun. I'm counting on you. Thanks for reading this.

I decided to make it only 1 paragraph.
And yes, you can choose how long it is!

I just think its funny that the example they use on the site to type in is "'Microsoft' or 'the power company'" I guess people hate Windows and Lights

Maybe it's time to tell the truth about Airsoft4Life, who is obviously smitten by his or her bloated prose. My BS detector senses an academician or lonely bureaucrat who is accustomed to writing lofty and longwinded passages without really saying anything that wasn't already established in the first few sentences. Hey, Airsoft, your post got our attention, but do you actually have anything of substance to say?

Clearly, based on his handle, Airsoft is a tech lightweight.

Airsoft? That's for 10 year olds.

According to Airsoft<head> Tippmann Pnuematics probably
sucks, too. He'd say Tippmann produces a subpar weapon, but
I'll put my SL68 II pumper up against his little rat-a-tat anytime.

PS If Mac OS sux so bad, why do ALL the Vista reviews say "more
like a Mac"? See David Pogues podcast @

Holy Crap I'm way off. Oh well, my original point still stands, Vista by default will be a success.

Digitalclips, my sister typed my final papers for me when I was in college (75). The best part was she use to type about 100 words/minute and would correct any mistakes as she went along. She was a year ahead of me and was working at a law firm. They had the IBM selectric typewriters that were awesome.

Yeah they were ported to X360, which I don't have... and my clan doesn't have them either... so until they have $360 to drop on a 360 and F.E.A.R., I'm stuck with Boot Camp. Battlefield 2 gets frustrating after a while XD.

Hey now. PC gaming is NOT dead. It is now and always willl be better than consoles. The graphics on consoles are obsolete a few months after they come out. PCs can be upgraded and modded. Plus they have freeware games, and MMOs.

As for Airsoft4Life, he should fall down a well.

So You'd rather drop $600 (being Generous by not factoring in other components) every 6 Months rather then every 6 years for better Graphics?

I'm not against (entirely) PC Gaming, it drives the rest of the market to higher standards in Video Cards, Displays, Keyboard Design, Processors, pretty much everything you can think of, but it's a pain in the A$$ to deal with, for all, except the most die hard. I'm not one of the die hard gamers out there, but many games are being ported to the Xbox 360 and the PS3 anyways, so I see little reason to bother with PC Gaming anymore.

I'm not one of the die hard gamers out there, but many games are being ported to the Xbox 360 and the PS3 anyways, so I see little reason to bother with PC Gaming anymore.

There are way more titles for PCs than any console. I find the WASD way easier to handle than any controller. PCs have insanely better graphics and can take advantage of new emerging technologies much faster than consoles. You can find plenty of decent games on a PC for free, which is more than you can say for a console. PCs do more than consoles. I can spend $1000 or so on a PC, or I can spend $400 on a console to play games, $100 on a DVD player, and then another $500 or so for a computer which I will need anyway to use the intarweb and Office. May as well just do it all on one machine, that does it better anyway.

Breaking them out into separate functions do have their advantages though. I really haven't seen a good computer remote that handles media playback all that well. Two of the three current consoles offer DVD playback, though maybe not as good as a stand-alone player in terms of playback quality and remote useability. You might also spend less money on the console route because outside of gaming and media work, a computer can now easily be useable for six years. For gaming and media use, it seems like it needs a significant upgrade every two or three years.

Thanks for continuing that trend!

Well, that is just a matter of personal preference I suppose. I prefer to have everything in one device, and I like to be able to customize it, which is easiest on a PC. I also like all the free content for PCs. I am willing to spend a bit more for that, but I can see how someone else might disagree.

I am not a dumb sh#t, and it makes no sense. Author is verbose and writes from a thesaurus.

He may have a point, but what it is is beyond understanding. The main problem is one could replace "Apple" with any other noun and the article would work.

Examples would help. A specific point or two would be helpful.
