    i really wouldn't mind become a mac fag, sometimes windows pisses me off so much. (for the past 2 days now, my winrar decided to work only wen he wishes)
    I use the mac in school a lot, it has its bugs, but nowhere near as windows.
    also, by any chance anyone has a crack for the CorelDraw X4? (illustrator doesn't want to install)

    yep, same here. I use it for university and recording and audio shit (ie. university :lol:) and for the interwebs of course and at least to ME it is faster than windows.
    it's nice and easy to use, no unnecessary steps, every is just easier and it also looks better(matter of opinion).
    Yeah of course you can tell me that you can do this and that and install and uninstall this and that to get your computer faster but I dont think this is an brilliant os then.

    And one of the big reasons it's faster is that Windows has shitload of processes and unneccesary codes running. I swear it's been stacking up since Win98.

    Anyway, both have their advantages...I don't diss windows though. I guess it's good if you are a gamer...but then again it's pretty much the only choice you have.

    Actually, I'm quite sure he knows more than you. Yes, he has it. Yes, he likes it! It makes no difference...Windows 7 is still Vista 2.0 and it IS still windows. No matter what you say.

    To me it doesn't even look like a totally new version. I am absolutely not bashing it though, neither is he. I could use it, It's ALOT better than vista and simplier. Also, looks and feels nicer than XP but is also faster.

    Still, I choose to get a Macbook...simply for it being more practical to me. I don't know what to do to my desktop computer though...7 year old piece of shit.

    EDIT: I refuse to be "OMGFANBOY" to a new version of Windows just because it was not as much rape as Vista. I also refuse to be macfanboi.

    It's not Vista 2.0 for christs sake, if anything, it's a faster, lighter, stripped down version of Vista. Like someone getting an old slow Honda Civic, stripping all the unnecessary bits out and sticking a massive engine in it. Anyone who says it's "Vista 2.0" is an imbecile.

    Um, that's kinda what is meant when you say Vista 2.0. It's a improved version of it :lol: It's basically what you said about it...and don't get all clever and picky with the terms. The fact still remains. 7 is the non-fail version of Vista. Anyways, I think i'll stop arguing here since it does no good anyway :lol:

    I'll just become a macfag and never worry about Windows again.

    I use a Mac now for graphic design purposes. It hasn't failed me yet.

    Can I just say I like shiny new computers?

    Except it's the internals that'vê changed the most, with massive code rewrital. Especially when it comes to memory management. Your friend knows jack shit.

    Windows 7 = what Death Magnetic was to Metallica in releasing something they should have...but way later. I've been using the beta as well as Vista and XP on a laptop. I also have a couple Macs and before Vista came out it seemed apparent that Microsoft was trying to copy OSX just a little. People really eat up that Aero GUI...(shiny!). But the one thing I hate about OSX, VIsta and 7 is the space it takes up on its own. Yes, hard drives are cheap as hell and there only getting bigger...but I would have figured over time things were going to get smaller...not bigger. Hell Windows 95 used a supposed 50mb of hard drive space. But I do look forward in getting a full copy of 7 and enjoying it.

    I do find it funny the new version of OSX is called Snow Leopard....which is a title of a porn movie I saw at my local store XD..good call Apple!

    I never mentioned anything about that. Neither did he...you misunderstood. My main point was that there is still layers of processes running there.

    Anyway, If i ever upgrade this computer it will have Windows 7. I doubt it though...no use in upgrading 7 year old chipsets.

    :lol: I have to agree with that.

    About Windows 7, I saw some vidz on the internet, i've a good friend who likes it. I like what it looks like but I can't tell what I think of it cause I've not use it yet.

    I'm usually not reluctant to try a new Window version, cause I think it's always possible to improve it by erasing some useless stuff on it, by changing some programs etc...

    I like windows and will sure try 7, but I don't hate Macs. I actually want, when I have a salary that can buy me stuff, get one of those big fancy Macs or a MacBook.

    I like Macs, and have an older MacBook. My one irritation when it comes to Macs were those commercials for that slim book that could fit into a manilla folder.

    Great! It's very skinny! And, therefore, 62 billion times easier to break!

    Now, I don't throw my MacBook around, but it has been dinged and has fallen off the bed. It survives, though. I have a feeling it I bought one of those slims it would shatter into sand if I placed in on my desk wrong.

    My MacBook has a couple of cracks, but I'd break one of those overpriced pieces of shit in weeks.

    I really don't see the point in getting a Macbook Air...they are less powerful,more expensive and gay. The macbook pro is already so small that it's easy to fit almost anywhere, also cast in aluminium so that probably won't break.

    Never understood this, I can't think of a single piece of CAD Software that is Mac exclusive.

    It's purely out of habit. I started college with it, so I'm more comfortable with it. The MacBook I have is more compatible with the TouchPad I bought than my PC did. It was just a question of comfort and a laziness.

    I just had a PC that ran Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign/Dreamweaver slower than the Mac did.
