Apple disses Windows on "Boot Camp" website! Ironic & hilarious!

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Word for word:


Macs use an ultra-modern industry standard technology called EFI to handle booting. Sadly, Windows XP, and even the upcoming Vista, are stuck in the 1980s with old-fashioned BIOS. But with Boot Camp, the Mac can operate smoothly in both centuries.

Word to the Wise

Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means it?ll be subject to the same attacks that plague the Windows world. So be sure to keep it updated with the latest Microsoft Windows security fixes."

When you visit the site it's down on the right-hand side!

    The first statement about EFI and BIOS is true, but definitely kind of arrogant (to say the least). After experiencing lots of "bummers" while dealing with BIOS, I have to agree. It's 1980's legacy &£@^$ that should no longer be around. BIOS sucks. Full stop.

    That being said, it's probably irrelevant to most computer users, who just buy a Dell and use it. BIOS does not make a difference to them, nor should it. That is, until they start installing another hard drive. That's where the shit can hit the fan when dealing with BIOS configurations...

    The second statement is, well, good practice. Especially on Windows. You should always keep up to date with security updates. And in fact it doesn't go far enough: simply keeping up to date with Microsoft security patches won't be enough! Windows needs more protection to stay protected, like anti-virus, anti-spyware and switch your default browser to Opera or Firefox.
