Question Are you a Mac or a PC?

Neither...I use Linux Ubuntu (: But when I'm not on my laptop, unfortunately a PC.

If this were Facebook, I'd 'like' that. I dual booted Linux Mint and Windows 7 for a while, until I ran out of space on each partition.

I am not a Mac OR PC. I would classify myself as an 'all of the above' I don't hate any type of system- they all have their flaws.
I like Windows 7 for its flexibility; I can run any type of program I want, it's backwards compatible with the past versions of Windows, I can run Apple programs on it, and it's gaming potential is incredible! I've currently got a Lenovo G530.
The Mac OS is about the same size as windows- 8GB, but it has different user fuctionalities. I like it however, because of their photo programs, and their crystal clear screens and resolutions. However they still can't support gaming very well- their cooling fans and hard drives don't have the most reliable record out there.
However, Linux wins the simple to run award- If I want to listen to music or just surf the web, and have fast response and simplicity, I will use it. It's flexibility to run other operating systems programs isn't the best- I tried for hours to get Photoshop CS 3 to run, and failed time after time. >_<

So given that response, I will use whatever is handed to me, I just might modify it a little bit. I have a pc, I want a Macbook Pro, and whatever computer I'm using at the time, I'll put Linux on it as well. After all, once I get a bigger hard drive on my current laptop, I'll be dual booting Windows 7 and Mac OSX.

I will say this though, when it comes to all-around use, I go with Windows.

I started with Apple back in '84 with my first computer, an Apple 2C. I then moved to Mac in '87 but I had to make a switch to PC when it became necessary to have industry specific software and to network my office. That was back in 1997 and I never returned. On the other hand, my sons never left Mac.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

PC- :)
Personally I think MAC is not worth it at all. My boyfriends screwed up laptop had to be taken back in to many times and I think he's fed up with it. Good thing he can take it back and get his money back.

I looove Linux because it's so fast and simple and never crashes on me or anything. Windows is good for gaming...and that's about it. :P Macs are good in terms of virus protection and little programs like it's (simple) video editing feature. That's the only thing I dislike about Ubuntu- the software center doesn't really provide many good video editing programs. Hey, I'm not a huge editor, but I'd like to be able to if I wanted. Is this a problem for you?
