Mac vs. PC

Sorry Mac Guys but I had to post this. I have been ROTFLMAO for a while after reading these posts.

This here is Taken From Coyote Blog:

I hate Macs. I have always hated Macs. I hate people who use Macs. I even hate people who don’t use Macs but sometimes wish they did. Macs are glorified Fisher-Price activity centres for adults; computers for scaredy cats too nervous to learn how proper computers work; computers for people who earnestly believe in feng shui.

PCs are the ramshackle computers of the people. You can build your own from scratch, then customise it into oblivion. Sometimes you have to slap it to make it work properly, just like the Tardis (Doctor Who, incidentally, would definitely use a PC). PCs have charm; Macs ooze pretension. When I sit down to use a Mac, the first thing I think is, “I hate Macs”, and then I think, “Why has this rubbish aspirational ornament only got one mouse button?” Losing that second mouse button feels like losing a limb. If the ads were really honest, Webb would be standing there with one arm, struggling to open a packet of peanuts while Mitchell effortlessly tore his apart with both hands.

It looks to be orginally written by Charlie Brooker?and then expanded upon?at?the Guardian in the UK here

I love this part:

Aside from crowing about sartorial differences, the adverts also make a big deal about PCs being associated with “work stuff” (Boo! Offices! Boo!), as opposed to Macs, which are apparently better at “fun stuff”. How insecure is that? And how inaccurate? Better at “fun stuff”, my arse. The only way to have fun with a Mac is to poke its insufferable owner in the eye. For proof, stroll into any decent games shop and cast your eye over the exhaustive range of cutting-edge computer games available exclusively for the PC, then compare that with the sort of rubbish you get on the Mac. Myst, the most pompous and boring videogame of all time, a plodding, dismal “adventure” in which you wandered around solving tedious puzzles in a rubbish magic kingdom apparently modelled on pretentious album covers, originated on the Mac in 1993. That same year, the first shoot-’em-up game, Doom, was released on the PC. This tells you all you will ever need to know about the Mac’s relationship with “fun”.

I don’t get the 1 button mouse thing. I love my two buttons?and scroll wheel. Yes sometimes I have to beat mine with a 50 pound sledge hammer but thats the fun part. I’m a tinkering kind of person and I love opening stuff up just to see what it looks like on the inside. I even like working on my own car. “Side Note” I am a tried and true Chevy Man but I think I might ditch the Suburban for the new Ford Expedition EL because of the lay flat seats. I am a member of a camping family. “End Side Note”

I know some of you are Mac Fans but I’m a PC guy to the core. But it doesn’t really matter does it as long as it works for you, you Mac Freaks 🙂
