Neither. I do not like Apple or Windows.
When in doubt,
Try Linux out!
Linux runs smoothly and reliably on a box that Windows Vista and OSX crash on! More and more windows programs are becoming compatible with linux (including games). And linux is Free! Software for most linux distros is Free. In fact, for some distros, it is illegal to charge people for linux software. You can't beat that. In todays time and age when 64-bit Windows is exorbetantly priced, any 64-bit linux distro will provide you with even more power, and they're all free!
When it comes down to Mac vs. PC though, it really depends on what you want to do with them. I like Windows better because there are just some programs that are not compatible for Macs. Mac is doing their best to make sure that there aren't too many, but just 1 incompatible program is all it takes to keep me on Windows. I do like the apple platform though because it is built on Unix instead of msDos. I don't have too much experience with Macs so I can't say too much about them, but the one time that I tried using one extensively, it kept locking up and freezing and making me have to reboot, it was a MacBook Pro. That was not a good experience, so I'm not sure how good apple really is. Are all apples like that?
Windows Vista easy. Macs for one have barley any playable games (to my knowledge). Second, there software is horrible. Thirdly, my Adobe software runs horrible on my Mac, runs way faster on windows.
so it's not a battle of hardware, but OS? from what i know today, mac already runs on an IBM-compatible hardware, not like before that needed it's own proprietary hardware. so i'll vote for PC..
I prefer Mac, partially because that was the first computer we had in my house, but also because overall I do prefer the Mac OS. I find the argument that there isn't as much Mac software as Windows software invalid because there is plenty of Mac software. Granted, there are some applications that only run on Windows, but since Apple switched to Intel Processors, if you really need a piece of software that only runs on Windows you can just install Windows as a secondary OS on your Mac. For games, there do tend to be more games for Windows versus Mac however. I definetly prefer Mac for media editing such as video and audio. I've tried it with Windows and I'm definetly not a fan.
well, you shouldn't expect a buggy os to run games that used to work on xp and 98. i run xp pro sp3 and have no probs w/ games. my brother has vista and can't even run ms office 07 w/out problems.I disagree with some of the statements here, I don't like windows gaming compatability, some of my favourite classic games do not work on windows vista, including Creatures 1&2 and Red Alert C&C. I also had major problems running the Sims 2 which was incredibly annoying, after finally forcing it to work the graphics were screwy and temperamental. Simply, I think games that could work on XP and 98 etc should definately work on Vista however many of them don't which I find a complete let down. Just shows why I prefer to have a gaming console than play on the PC.
