I was actually perfectly calm when I wrote that thanks. What's the point of posting 299 on site about Macs when you clearly just like to stir things up.
To answer your questions - yes I am aware of other versions of Windoze (did you actually read my post? Namely my wife uses a PC) I have had the misfortune of using 3.11, 95, 98, 2000, XP and Vista and none of them even compare to OS8 on the Mac!
I am more than capable of learning how to use a computer system along with other thing like how to spell (it's "breathe" not breed - just a heads up! What's the matter Vista not come with a spell checker?) Fingers crossed you never "Breed"! That's all the world needs - spawn of Nikon
Waste Money on the operating system? Last time I checked Leopard (which is a full version of the operating system) was still cheaper than the Home Basic version of Vista? (And at least my operating system works!)
iMovie is a video editing piece of software - so how would it help me compile the list of faults with the advert - typical PC user always looking for a difficult solution to an easy problem! Did you need to edit your registry to get Internet Explorer to work so you could post your messages?
I think you may be on the wrong site my friend - this is Appleinsider.com not ohmygodiamsojadedbyhowcackmywindowscomputerissoine edtorantaboutittomakemyselffeelbetter.com
You were stung as child weren't you or do you just get off on negative attention?
Did Mummy force feed you apples and now every time someone of something is apple related it sets off one of spasms?
kaostheory7, thank you for your reply.
You called me an idiot, moron and few other things in a single post, with handful of exclamation marks, so I preferred to presume you were upset - otherwise I'd just have to presume you are rude and without manners, and I hate to make such conclusions about people I haven't met in real life.
By the way, sorry for "breed" thing - English is not my native, and there is only that much FireFox spell check can fix. And thank you
for wishing me not to breed - I'd never wish you not to have kids, but hey - I'm just unintelligent Windows user; maybe such thoughts come with that Mac coolness.
I also didn't involve your parents in this discussion. I did that once, in one of treads here on AI, and apologised after that. But you are free to do so, hey, this is your forum, and those are your manners.
That being said, my mum did supply me with apples when I was a kid - very long time ago - and I enjoyed them, as I do now. I also enjoy apple juice, even Appletiser. Thanks for asking.
I'm sorry that you see me lacking intelligence, but at the end of a day you have all rights to build your opinion on me as you see fit. Hey, you might even be completely right about that.
I don't actually like to stir things up, but I also don't like to be fed with same bullshit about system that I arguably know better than majority of Mac users here. It just happens that I do work in IT consultancy firm and am dealing with different flavours of Windows 8 hours a day minimum. You have been dealing with some Windows systems, but they are my bread and apple juice on daily basis. It also just happens that I do have 4 different Vista systems and 4 different XP systems at home and biggest problem with them is explaining my wife why we actually need all of them; it is obviously much easier to explain why 20+ pairs of shoes are necessary... so anyway; if I stir sometimes, it is due to being provoked.
I'd be much happier if people around here would choose to talk more about Macs than about Windows - it is Apple forum after all - but sadly that is not so. It is still enjoyable to cross swords and words with some people around here, though.
I'm not saying that Vista is better than OSX, or that 7 will be better than OSX. I don't know enough about OSX to have an opinion on that. I would like to know more about OSX but as it is, I still don't see enough true
reasons to justify price premium that comes with Macs - and I don't see all the utter bullcraping on Windows as a true reason because, based on my personal opinion, majority of that is simply not true.
But I will still be considering Mac for my next notebook - not because I take it for granted it is better machine, but because I am interested to give it a go. (and it is easier to justify something completely different when discussing budget with wife)
I'm glad we had a chance to exchange some bit more reasonable thoughts. Have a nice day.
