I’m curious if anyone out there has recently made the switch to Mac, and whether or not you’re glad you did. I’d be even more interested to hear from someone who switched to Windows from Mac.
It’s interesting for me to hear people’s reasons because I’m so (Mac) biased. The only reason I can see to use Windows is the software base it has, but I think that is quickly diminishing. And even if you like Windows as an operating system, the PC architechture seems archaic in many ways (e.g., BIOS and the often nasty mesh of PC hardware). Linux is cool as a workhorse, but for a personal system it simply requires too much effort to maintain and keep it running. Mac has served me well. It doesn’t crash, the hardware doesn’t fight each other, 95% of the applications I need are included with OS X, and all apps live in harmony with each other. Plus if anything is ever wrong with my computer, I only have one company to blame for most things (Apple) rather than a whole slew (Dell, Microsoft, Adobe). :-)
Anyway, I’m rambling. I’m just curious if there are any well-founded opinions out there.
