I like PCs. A lot. I don’t care for Macs, even if they’re supposedly “easier” to work. There aren’t that many differences between Macs and PCs, except for the slowness and the sucking of Macs.
Even on a really really “fast” Mac, the time it takes to load up the internet on a Mac vs. a PC is ridiculous. You sit there and watch the black and white spinny thing turn and turn, and then when it’s REALLY thinking, you sit there and watch the color wheel spin and spin, and you’re wondering what the fuck is it doing? With a PC, if it’s ever slower than it should be for the kind of connection it has, you can just Control Alt Delete and it stops the program. With Macs, you have to know the EXACT combination of Apple key plus other random keys on the keyboard to get it to stop. It just sits there. Most of my friends own iBooks or a Mac, and I just don’t get it.
The other day, when I was waiting around for a class, I heard some professors talking about PCs vs. Macs and they all started laughing at the “imbeciles” who think PCs are easier to use. I guess I just want to know why it’s supposedly easier, versus a PC which is incredibly simple. I’ve never had a Mac user friend use my computer and ask me “How do you open the internet?” or anything else for that matter. It all begins with the Start key or a nice little icon on the Desktop. Not with Macs. Everything’s hidden or you have to press Apple N to get the internet to open after you’ve double clicked the icon! What the hell is that?
Anyway, I have a lot more to say but this is really long, so I’d love to hear back on why Macs are either more fun/easier/faster, etc. In the meantime, I remain a hardcore PC fan.
