But IF, someday, the "world" someday decides that "MacOS" is better and should have "market share", certainly the transition to dominance cannot occur in one swell foop, overnight. This major reason for using PCs instead of Macs can't be changed quickly: it has to be gradual, que no?
So how does it happen, if someone doesn't start now?
Thus my question: do you think there is a STRUCTURAL, SUBSTANTIAL difference that would make a PC better than a Mac?
Vista seems to be the best thing to happen to the Mac OS in a long time.
(this is just an article at Computerworld about a large Automotive Supply company switching over to Mac and why.
Look for the "skip ad" link in the upper right hand corner)
I guess I'm talking both hardware and software, I'm not sure - I'm not a Mac expert, as you might detect, but most likely to convert. But isn't software the most garish difference?
I'm not sure, really, how to phrase the question. It just seems that, arguments *against* Mac depend on "status quo" and I'm asking about change.
On the OS side - OSX is just better than Windows for me. I can run an operating system which is pretty much Unix, but which runs Photoshop (in a nutshell).
Mostly I use windows but I have played with OSX. I like the fact that it does eveything a home user wants out of the box. I have also looked at Linux but it is not such a friendly user experiance (although it is getting better all the time) I quite like ubantu and fedora.
And so far (about 5 years), I have no complaints as now I can use my custom unix tools and windows apps that will never be rewritten without noticeable loss of performance.
It is nice to just buy the app I need without regard to its OS anymore. It more like OS's are relegated to nothing more than application enablers on a common hardware platform.
