I saw a couple people post comments about their dislike for Macs and some people responding.
You are raining on PC users parade by saying "smart people buy Macs" which makes you no better than mac haters.
Maybe a psychoanalyst should tell us why you're getting so defensive?
Simply look at this tread title. Good news for Mac fans, period. If the title was "are PC better than Mac?" I could understand the debate. I simply don't get the reason why some people HAVE to post theyre dislike about Macs HERE. When I read words like "funky, ridiculous, pathetic and Apple Macs're crap" I think it is a strong choice of words for just posting comments. And "raining on the parade" seem appropriate for the case.
Back to title : you see it as a PC parade?
First of all the post wasnt "Good news for macs.." it was "Dual 1 ghz Macintosh now out"
Sure there were 2 people that posted negative comments but I don't see how that justifies your response with "smart people choose Macs" - so dumb people choose PCs?
If you want to get into a slanging match then thats fine but don't complain about negative comments and then make them yourself.
>>First of all the post wasnt "Good news for macs.." it was "Dual 1 ghz Macintosh now out"
I presume most members here can read and understand that a dual 1ghz Mac is good news for Mac fans.
>> so dumb people choose PCs?
You sayed that. If you put my quote back in it's context, I sayed since Macs are faster than Wintel PC and Silicon Graphics are more expensive smart people chose Macs.
Most 3D producers still use multiple processor Linux workstations and Silicon Graphics for the job, but since Maya and other packages are available on Macs they tend to replace them by Macs.
>>complain about negative comments and then make them yourself.
I believe you make your own negative interpretation of my comments.
This thread is about Apple shipping a new box, period.
The rest of you need to go find a mac buddy
I just find it amusing that people get so defensive.
>>Why does everytime Apple beats the pants off the rest of the industry
What, cos it happens so often?
>>The rest of you need to go find a mac buddy
I work on a mac from 8:30AM - 5:00PM 5 days a week.
Yes, you can run a webserver on Mac. You can use Apple's server software. There's also WebSTAR, which I've seen in use to good effect. And you can install Linux on a Mac and run a "regular" webserver.
You probably wouldn't have much luck running an IIS server on a Mac though... no matter how good your windows emulation software is. ;)
For a webserver though? I'd say set up an AMD/Linux box. It would be cheaper.
But other than that I want to clarify one point for "littleman" when I was speaking about XP I used it in AMD context. If you follow, that means their new processor line called XP, not the Windows XP Professional, which I do have at home and like it somewhat. I am sure in about 6 month it will be a decently stable system as win2k is (for the desktop).
My experience with Mac has always been negative, I used the round mouse thing just to illustrate one of its short comings. Granted it is not current, but I still see plenty of graphics shops using those...
Also making your PC in funky colors hardly adds any value for a hardware software guy...
