I think they are the nicest, most humble people on the planet.

 

So I gather you didn't know I owned one Tony?

Not a fan of the product, but the owners...eh, they can be ok ;)

I work with both Windows on a laptop and OS X on an iMac. I absolutely hate - *detest* - the way of how windows always makes me work for it, instead of the system working for me. Unless one has worked with both, one doesn't know how uncreatively bad Windows / Microsoft really is. Other than that, both are used on mere computers. Not *that* important, : ).

Windows is made for / by accountants, OS X for / by artists.

 

Philip, I'm not saying but I am saying if you know what I mean...

I only have windows, but I have always been told most photographers prefer Mac over windows.

I had to use them in school, but have a PC at home.

I didn't see anything that really set one apart from the other (except for price).

I never have to worry about a virus. The system is always updated and clean automatically. I go go to real people and get any problem solved or get help with new software and products. You can't place a value on that these days.

I knew you must own one Robert since, aside from me, you are the second most humble person I know.

My husband hates Mac's. I've never used them so I don't have a comparison. I'm happy with the PC.

The computers at school crashed and locked up.

They cost twice as much don't they? Are they twice as "good"?

I don't know. I didn't see it.

I used to be a window, NOW I love my MAC and would never go back!~

But you asked about Mac OWNERS.

I don't know a lot of them but I have been told some of them have been known to say things like...

"A cheap man knows the price of everything and value of nothing..... "


I'll let you decide what that says about Mac owners...

RJ....
If saved to DVD's or external drive...can files on a PC go onto a Mac? Like...word doc files, image files, PDF files, My Document files, etc.

If a PC owner got a mac....they have to get all new software, right? P-shop, web editing...everything!?

 

I'm down with that john... Yes Lawrence there is extra costs on software but files can be saved ,after what we went through with virus' on Pennys PC I'd change over when i could..I use others pc online and I feel like it's 98 dial up again... and yes john that was a set up

Thanks...the software thing is a bummer! ;) Especially when it comes to a new PS!

 

Apple will go into obscurity in a couple of years. It's Microsoft After Gates, redux. Apple hasn't had any ground breaking product since I-Phone II and it would have been as far back as the original I-Phone if the original didn't have all the bugs that the II fixed. And without Jobs, Apple is like a lost ship looking for an identity. Their products now come out half-baked. They've become reactionary instead of innovative. The Mini came out only to react to the demands other tablets of similar sizes, a very pedestrian reaction They sat on the Apple TV for too long and now every other manufacturer has a smart TV out or a smart box that can provide the content that the Apple Tv promised. Without Jobs, they've spent their final lifeline a few releases ago and now they are only relevant by fumes. Google is/will be the new Apple and Apple will be the old Microsoft. It's the changing of the guards again before our very eyes. Mac being in the Apple family will go down with the family.

Lawrence, you can install and use your bought photoshop version on both a mac computer and a windows computer.

 

I think MAC owners:

Have more money than I do (or, at least, more credit sources or indulgent parents).

Drive Swiss vehicles.

Don't enjoy digging around in their own computers while wearing an anti-static wristband and a geeky headlamp.

Are more likely to be trend-following hipsters.

Hey, you asked! ;-)

The Letters PC are often used incorrectly. A Mac can be a PC as well as any computer. It means "Personal Computer"

 

Lawrence catch a flight to Bangkok get a massage an pic up a copy of PS for 50 bucks... there are ways ... Wings, you may very well be a visionary on this one but my Mac way out shines and PC I've ver run.. I know nothing of the other products and what the market is..I do know I was in the mac store today and it was happening big time for lap tops...Wendy, I heat with wood that I cut and drive a 2003 dodge caravan with 170 k on it.. but I will spend a grand easy on a pair of italian boots

I own 5 other computers besides my Mac. I do my own work on them including changing bad capacitors on the mother board, replacing hard drives, etc.. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty and I have never owned a Volvo. I own a Mac because I can't afford a cheap computer.

Dan, who is the one being reactive?, You never responded to my questions. I merely asked you if I insulted you,.you give yourself too much credit...

I own a MAC and used to own a PC platform system. All I can say from my experience is the MAC doesn't start to go bad when a newer version of the OS is coming out but Windows seemed to do just that. I always got the impression that MS would begin to send bad code to older machines so, out of frustration, the users would resort to buying a newer version of Windows. Just my opinion so please don't shoot me for it. If you really want to know, I hate all systems and wish I could break the habit before I go blind.

I have always been a Mac owner. Currently, I own there. My wife has a PC and she tolerates it. When she has trouble, I usually can't help because the windows system is so difficult to navigate through.
To those who think Mac owners are snobs and drive Swiss cars, I spent there years with the Army's 2/75 Ranger Bat. I drove a flatbed for a year and a half, and played minor league hockey for 10 years.
However, to be fair, I do enjoy the occasional StarBucks. :-)

Me too Don. I have an occasional Starbucks, I am usually not a snob, and I hate Swiss cars, probably because I can't afford one. (:

 

sorry Mark, I tried... Next I'll start a thread on what beer people drink

 

Dan Turner

Was that the object? Intelligent conversation and meaningful exchange? Would you like to bring people together or drive them apart?

LOL Dan,
where would you get the idea of RJ as mediator or people pleaser?

 

Tony Murray

The Swiss make chocolate, watches, and stuff, not cars.

 

Don Olea

They may have confused Swiss with Swedes. Again, in all fairness, I did own a Saab, but that was before my Mac days. I also owned and Audi and a Volvo. Currently I own a Ford, Chevy AND a Mercedes! And get this it's a really snobbish 300sl roadster convertible. So what does that say about me now? I'm sooo confused! :-\ lol

 

Tony Murray

I am so polar opposite of a snob. But I "LIke" my Mac. I don't "Love" any inanimate objects.

This seems to be the most interesting thread on faa. That's kinda lame..........

... So don't play easy!

 

Sorry Mark I've been on the road but I'm back and as soon as I get the fires rolling I'll try and juice it up a little
Dan I'm lost as to what you're even driving at, perhaps you can be clearer?
Don and Tony it only proves that unlike the stereo type you just simply like good things with no image attached to it...

"This seems to be the most interesting thread on faa. That's kinda lame.........."

Mark, no one is stopping you (yet) from starting interesting, fascinating, thought-provoking threads of your own filled with the intelligence and sophistication you so crave.

The object would be to say what you want — anything and everything you want — without getting thrown off the forum, without alienating your readers and without being ignored. The question is, are you talented enough and motivated enough to do that?

 

Dan my man, still the bitter heckler, lets critique this post shall we?;

Mark, no one is stopping you (yet) from starting interesting, fascinating, thought-provoking threads of your own filled with the intelligence and sophistication you so crave.

He has done this several times and you loved it you're full of it if you say you didn't
Now lets look at this one;

Although I can lay personal claim to some of this in all honesty Dan I'd have a lot more to add,,but DUDE!...., it sounds like you're talking about yourself here..so get to work will you

Dudes! I already did respond by paraphrasing Mohandas.

 

I'm lost.............. Are you okay? delusions don't serve you Dan

 

Dan Turner

"I'm lost............."

I know. If you want to play with me you need to be on your game. Otherwise you're just going to be lost and pissed.

 

You're rather fond of yourself aren't you Dan..

@Don what this says about you.....you have too many cars?

The swiss don't make cars? No wonder they are so expensive!

Mark is right. When getting a reaction from Dan is the only interesting thing on these threads,we know we are in trouble! No jibe to RJ at all for trying. He isn't responsible for how or who responds, or the limits of the forum rules.
I would love to see some art talk, but the locals(who ever they are) call it snobby, and elitist. I do believe it is still legal here though, unlike religion and politics, which of course as we all know have nothing whatsoever to do with the creation of art.

Personally I think that to be all inclusive to the point of full EXclusion of anything deemed "upsetting", is as devastating as, and has many parallels to genocide.

Well there is an important thread about Afrin nose spray . Don't miss that one. You can post your FAV image in about 50 different threads. Help out the mutual back slap society. And then some yoyo who thinks he can copyright a Murillo. I wish it would stop raining....................

(edit) And don't forget the new goody two shoes attack. Can't have those neked people doing "things" to each other. Not here anyway.

 

Well there comes a time in all threads for it end. Thank you to all who participated in indulging me in my observational day dreams. The question was a loaded one intended to trick some information out of peoples loyalties, prejudices and belief systems and it worked for a while but I think we've gotten out of it what we needed. A simple question elicited a great deal, confirmed a few things and left me with a few more questions. Thanks again, I will step away from the keyboard and contemplate my next approach.... RJ
