I work on a Mac everyday - I have no choice. When I need to deliver real work quick, I bring my PC. Stupid Macs keeps freezing on me at all time and it's one of those power thing with two terrabyte hd attached to it.
It's annoying to have all those network screens open up every freaking morning and I have to shut them down one after the other. I get a stupid ichat pop up but I forgot the password of the apple account and tried to retrieved it, called Apple - no can do. So every morning when I open this piece of junk, I have to shut 8 windows and a pop up.
Then when I shut a program, it's not really shut. It's just hidden or some crap like that. I have to go in manually click at quit - I have like 12 programs opened at any time.
Now my biggest peeve, is when I try to move from one app to another and the top menu is stuck in the other program. I don't know why it does that. I have to access the menu and manually switch to the other program. Just clicking on the window won't cut it. I asked the IT guy, he says he doesn't know.
There's a bunch of features missing in the programs I use that work quite well on my PC. I don't know why. Features for the same program, same version are just no where to be found.
When I shut the stupid computer, sometimes the button stay lightened up. It happens often in the morning when I come in. The screens appear to be shut, but I can't for the life of me guess if the bloody thing is on or off or just dormant. Gotta reboot all the time and wait a couple of minutes for the thing to restart (rebooting now takes me less than 30 seconds on my PC with W7).
When I install some package, it seems that I have to keep a stupid back up of the downloaded files somewhere in the ipa or app format. Because if I drag and drop it on the bar at the bottom, it will still need to keep the original install files? Right?
And what about installing a program. Why are they a couple of steps besides clicking on an icon and waiting for the bloody thing to install itself? Why does it open some box and I have to drag stuff in some other box or something weird? I thought these things were supposed to be easy to use?
Another major complaint, is removing a disc by throwing it in the garbage can. If the anything within that screen is opened, it won't remove the media. And it won't even send me a pop up notice telling me to shut the every opened instance of the media. It just do nothing.
They tell me Macs are user friendly. I just don't see it. I absolutely cannot see any benefit or any use for these things. This is all hype that this power user cannot for the life of me understand. I'll stick with my PC, thank you.
