I use the mac at home and its been really really stable no crashes... however i work with and support windows server pc's all day and we have many problems, no way am I going to use that at home and have to configure my computer at work and at home after all the problems with pc's...

on the other hand these problems keep me employed god bless microsoft...doe!

Did you just edge out the edginess of regular apple users?

I love MAC. The best response to somebody who likes to talk about their MAC is to refer to them, and the company, as MAC.

Apple Customer Support is horrible. Very poorly trained - if trained at all.

I agree about the Starbucks part, but obviously you haven`t seen the Microsoft store yet.

ARE YOU FOR REAL?

Apple has some of the best customer service in the tech biz. You call them and get a real person, who speaks in an understandable accent. Don't want to call? You can make an appointment in a store and real person helps you out.

Try that with Dell... you can't. Calling Dell CS means that you get to talk to someone in India, and you can;t take your computer to a Dell store (they don't exist).

Personal example: all of my music is set up on my Mac OS iTunes. If I wan to use AutoCAD, which only exists for Windows, I run VM so I can use AutoCAD and listen to my music at the same time.

I used itunes on a PC and it was a horrible goddamn experience. Itunes is literally the worst piece of software I've ever had the displeasure to use. It simply doesn't work, and obviously wasn't designed by anyone with any interest in music.

If that's the quality of their flagship product then I want nothing to do with them.

You could just use Foobar or a similar app and add all of the songs to the library so that you can simply switch to Windows, listen to music and use AutoCAD at the same time. And they'd run much faster too.

I think the worst thing about iTunes is its use of resources, which is ridiculous for a multimedia app. I stick to VLC for movies and Foobar if I want to listen to some music.

Agreed. iTunes is probably the worst piece of bloated crap ever, and last I tried, literally impossible to completely uninstall without a complete format.

Mac sucks, don't buy into their shit. They're as bad as MS. Worse when you consider the attitudes.

And Tokyo Slim, if you chime in with any "I told you so" shit I am going to fly out to Seattle and bash your head in with this fucking computer.
what is the MVA?

The problem with VM is USB doesn't work with the guest OS. At least, not with VirtualBox, haven't actually tried VMWare.
