I'm not sure where you get the idea that I'm a MS fanboy. I'm really not. I am however convinced it is a superior OS when compared to OSX. There is a difference.

I just wanted to make sure you weren't making idiotic assumptions.

As I've mentioned, every operating system I've ever used has been crap.

No idiotic assumptions here.

Question though (purely for curiosity's sake), what operating systems have you used, and why were all of them crap?

I admit I have nothing more to add to this thread on top of what I have already said but I would like to clarify that to eject a device in MacOS X one has to right click on the device icon on the desktop and click "Eject".

Fuck it, I will add this: whoever thinks Windows is better than MacOS X needs to grow up. And whoever thinks MacOS X is better than Windows needs to stay away from all those mochafrappwankachinos at fucking Starbucks; they are killing your braincells. And whoever thinks Linux is better than all of the above needs to get laid.

Pretty close to all of them I'd guess. Short list:

MSDOS
Windows
Mac OS
OS/2
a whole lot of *nix variants (Solaris, Linux, AIX, BSD, etc).

And like I said before, that doesn't include embedded systems and such.

Each one has good parts and bad parts. FreeBSD is a brutally effective web server for example. But "user friendly" is not a quality I'd give it.

I used to do a lot of scientific computing, and software was sometimes only written for one platform. I've frozen lots of systems

I had the same problem when I recently started using Mac. I couldn`t understand all this "eject" stuff, because it works a little different from Windows, but once you use the Mac for a while, you start learning the differences.

It`s really easy to eject a drive from both Win and Mac, but I think the major difference I have experienced is that when I eject something from the Mac, it ejects immediately (just rightclick + eject). On the other hand, when I was using Win XP I would try to eject something and it would not properly eject after many tries (this happened frequently). No big deal, and probably fixed in Win7, but that was my experience.

I agree. These days, one is not better than the other. Or maybe I should say, OS X was better than Vista, but now that Win7 is out it seems there is no clear winner.

I think Apple runs smoother for more people because Apple OS runs on one package (their own). On the other hand, MS runs on many different computers/packages so you run into the occasional error, etc.

Obviously for advanced users like TS, MS is the better choice. I imagine even if he did encounter a problem on his computer (due to the OS) he would actually have a little fun fixing it, but I think Mac can be more suited for the average user.

I think even TS would admit the new MS stores are pretty pathetic though. I couldn`t stop thinking about this thread the first time I saw one.

Wait, what?

Microsoft has "stores"? I will readily admit that is retarded, what do they sell there? Mice?

That was exactly my point. The MS store looked just an Apple store with the cheesy t-shirts and everything. If TS gets the chance to see the store in person, I think that might be the time he makes the switch to Mac.

lol I don't think TS would ever be a Mac-man. What microsoft is just doing is just boosting sales while saying, "what you can do, we can do better" or atleast trying to.

The day I get a Mac expecting to use it, is the day I blow my brains out all over it's stupid screen.
