which one do you like?
I'm not answering because there's no appropriate choice. I use a Mac because I'm smart enough to avoid Windows. (I'm not much into widows either. :tongue:) And you're just begging for Franz to come in and educate you on the joys of Linux!
If I had the money I would try out a mac, but I am poor and am stuck with windows.
I still don't know how you can exist without right clicking
I use Windows, and I'm awesome. The two are unrelated, by the way.
I'm not too fond of widows, mind.
I use Windows because I couldn't afford a Mac. I use iApplications where possible (I love iTunes soo much). I'd like to have a Powerbook or something, but I'd be scared that people thought I was showing off (which is why I hide my iPod). I like Apple hardware.
On the other hand, I'm perfectly content with Windows, but that's probably because I spent hours after installation getting everything justright.
I can't believe I've entered into a "Windows vs Mac" thread.
Every time I use mac I end up getting confused because it's so unlike the precious windows
Yeah how do mac users right click? Is there such a thing as mouse gestures on a mac? How do I play minesweeper on a mac? Considering these are two of my computer necessities, I am not sure if I could switch even if I had the money.
Precious Windows? Who are you working for? I'm in shock.
precious Windows whatever....
and halo on a mac is only a 16 bit shooter game :surprised that's not haloesque!
I thought you could get multiple buttoned Mac mouses?
no, just one annoying button
Not true. I have a trackball with 4 buttons that I can plug into my mac and use all 4 buttons plus the trackball.
Ha! I have a mouse with 6 buttons and a wheel. pwned
But Mac users get Widgets!!! (I have to get Tiger! *jumps up and down excitedly*)
Now I'm jealous! I've never even seen a mouse with 6 buttons before. I want a 6 button mouse!!! I'll send my kitten out hunting for one.
Someone's been playing under the power cables again...
What's your computer useful for?
Hmm I did a quick search and found mouse gestures for mac. For minesweeper I could always learn to not flag.
Really? Cool. Which software uses those? I never really looked because it didn't sound like anything I'd likely use. I have enough trouble remembering the keyboard shortcuts I created for Word. :uhh:
This is why mac users are so much more productive. No minesweeper to waste hours and hours playing (minesweeper was my addiction in the days before I had internet access; the withdrawal is rough when you first realize you don't have that or solitaire on your computer, but you do get over it.) :tongue:
Frankly, I think that all computers are useful for is being useful. If you want to play minesweeper why not play soccer? If you want to waste time why not learn pine sculpture with chainsaws?
Why am I wasting my time?
Because I want to play minesweeper!
MB is right though, I would get used to it after a while.
I only have three buttons and a scrollwheel.
edit: I prefer FreeBSD, I'm using Linux at the moment, and when I'm in school I like to play with the G5 PowerMacs. Soooooo fast... except when they crash (about once every 90 minutes of usage - what's up with that?). I also have Windows 2000 on my hard drive (for DVD watching), I don't go online with it.
I use Windows, I voted Mac, I hate Linux or any Unix for that matter.
*nix is the biggest waste of time for humanity in general. I want my wasted teenage years returned back to me when I wasted it on that piece of ****. And as far as Windows is concerned - I wish somebody would sue them everytime their computer crashed, but since this is a relatively new thing to actually have software on your computer, let alone a computer, people are just ready to have whatever they can get their hands on.
If you have a craving to waste your time on something, instead of playing with *nix, try QNX. At least you'll feel like a real man for once. Right.
