I agree with you there. I gave my opinion on the closed minded experts, and the Mac Vs PC. So, either we close it, or we get back to where we were.

We decided we need to either upgrade to higher spec laptops, but when confronted with a price of about £700 each to upgrade to laptops capable of live-show use, we decided to go Mac for the added reliability and customer support.

im sure this would make sense to anyone whos ever conducted a computer-based live performance.
This really depends on the brand of the PC though, doesn't it? An Acer's reliability is going do be vastly different from something like a Sager.

That's totally right, I only ever argue with people if it's about Windows or PC parts...but never OS's I don't know about. It ticks me off when people pull things out of the air thinking they know more about something when you do...or when they know you're right and just make up random facts to try to back-up their argument.

I can say I am pretty ignorant to PC's/OS's BUT it's all a learning experience, and I love it.

When I pull things out like that, I normally say it's a guess, and I still keep it to what's logic in my head. It's like the garage man said to my pal's friend: The starter is screwed because of the interior light is fried. I just...laughed.

You know? I call myself a "geek". I say I'm good with computer. Well, here's the truth: I CAN CODE. That's all. I can't even figure out how to install stuff on Ubuntu. :'(

sudo apt-get install *package name* if in ubuntu repository

if its .tar.gz: wget *link*
sudo dpkg -i *whatever file was saved as*

.run or others: wget *link*
chmod a+x *package name*
./package name

there you go.
