SPLIT: Mac vs Windows
« on: November 26, 2006, 06:11:52 pm »
macs suck.

I wholeheartedly agree.

Macs are good for industry standard stuff, like video editing and the like. For personal use i just found them to be a pain.


This thread was split from the Wii sales thread. PS: I love Lysix. He's amazingly handsome. -Torp

Apple market them as the "creative" side to a PC, with video editing, gaming, and picture editing etc.
But they forget, Mac's are useless with games.

We all know who the winner is, there's no point in arguing.

Between Windows and Mac, I'd vote for OS X.  But of course, Linux/BSD pwns them both.  ;D

For gaming, on the other hand...

Can't we take this debate a month after the release of Windows Vista? More interesting when we have feedback from the dumb masses :P

Vista sucks now, and it will on release.

It looks nice though, shame it's broke in theory.

I've used it since beta 1 and I don't agree at all. :)

80% performance on games compared to XP
Restrictions on the Windows Kernel, disallowing external antivirus programs to be installed, and pretty much disabling you from ever touching the Windows folder?

Sucks.

Sucks.

It really shows you have not tried or been kept up with the lates info. 80% gameperformance compared to XP is bogus. Even beta 1 gave increased my performance on Quake 4, F.E.A.R., Battlefield 2 and Half Life 2. I can't give any stats on that but the framerate on the same settings were between 5-15 in these games on the same settings on XP. Windows Kernel, well all have complaints on that are the software engineers but Microsoft has the right to restrict it to since this isin't opensource and an open kernel can be dangerous. Antivirus softwares as far as I know have settled this with Microsoft already and are allowed. And I'm in the Windows folder fiddleing, even replacing a sound or two already so I don't know where you got the restrictions story from.

My experiences with Vista so far and this is the late RTM version. So Restrictionwise its not much different from XP. The difference is there are settings that let you choose to make a Vista system become very restrictive.
