Default Re: Vista is a rip off, Mac OS Tiger Rules

Eh, who cares? I can get Windows Vista for free and it's compatible with all my games. Fine with me. If I wasn't a gamer, then I'd definately go for a Macintosh, but whatever...

The Mac os, with the people from windows boasting the vista features, it proving the point that vista is a rip off of mac!!!

No one would buy one? Liar, i have one, ill post pics if you want. and i also know lots of other people that do so dont say that :P

Oh well. Its bound to happen sometime that the difference would shelter away. Just like whats happening with audio products now. Were seeing a type of join that now were using touch instead of buttons, etc.

This is just the next step, and doens't really bother me. The MAC OS has some good features, and I'm glad windows are taking some of it onboard. It just another product.

Mac people will stick to mac,
Windows people will stick to Windows.

So, I don't see the big deal. I couldn't imagine windows keeping to how there working at the moment anyway. All the Mac features just make tihngs easier, and Windows are just doing the same type of things, because they are the most logical things to make tihngs easier on the user.

So doesn't bother me.

So... you are saying you spent TWENTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS on a macintosh?
wow,
gg.
I could fill my house with TWENTY THREE decent computers for that much money.

and given how loads of us here are probably gamers, we are never going to use that useless material called a mac.
Why do i say it's useless?
Because to a gamer it is.
lets say I had the most bad-ass of all macs, like the one you brag about.
now lets see, I want to be able to play elder scrolls 3, quake4, half-life2, ut04, vampire blood lines, farcry, fable, halo, RTCW, FEAR, etc..

how many do you think i could play on a mac? hmmm?

Now that is not to say it's 100% useless or anything, if your not a gamer and feel content with buying a machine with enough cash to get the best pc in the world, power to you I suppose.

And for the record, i've dealt with Macs on several occasions at my school, and I hate to say it, but I can't stand them.
Their gui, the SINGLE BUTTON MOUSE, the way the keyboard feels, the DOCK, just the way the s*** works is annoying and will never fly with me.
thus, I say, **** macintosh.

and as for that video, i'm not even willing to download quick time to see that.
