I’ve been using my Mac for quite some time now. I’m a bit more acclimated with it, and while I’m no expert, I’ve seen enough to safely say that Macs are no better than PC’s. Here are a few reasons why:
- My MacBook Pro crashes with the Apple’s version of the BSOD more often than I’ve had Windows BSOD on me… and it does it on shutdown!
- Today, for instance, an application locked up on me. Tried to Force Quit to no avail. Killing it from the Terminal didn’t even work. Decided to log out and it froze. No BSOD or anything, but it sat there displaying my wallpaper and nothing more.
- The “beach ball” shows up more often than Windows would ever hang up on me. It shows up randomly and applications hang and even OSX hangs. It’s quite annoying.
- You can’t highlight a file and hit the Delete key on the keyboard to move the file to the trash. The mouse is not always better.
That’s just a few, but the first 2 are big ones. Everyone whines about how Windows is always crashing and needs to be rebooted. I haven’t had a better experience with MacOS X. The only operating system I’ve had fewer crashing issues with is Linux.
So to all you Apple fanboys out there… It does not just work.
