OS X really isn't that much better or worse than Vista.

    The only main difference is that Vista has a ton of apps.

    Sounds like someone hasn't used Mac OS X before. I have a friend who's the same way. Hates the iPhone, hates the iPod, hates Mac OS X yet he's never used any of them.

    I use both but on Vista 90% of the time. :hsughno: If you're a competent and capable human being, it's a great OS.

    I have been a windows user for 9 years, I recently (for no real reason) switched over and got a mac. I love this machine more than I have ever loved a computer :) It reminds me of the good old days when computers were fun <3

    My friend called me a sellout for getting a macbook. He won't even give it a chance, it's so much better then Vista

    Very true. He just got a HTC Tilt and thinks it's the best thing around. Then I show him all the stuff the iPhone can do that he can't. "But I have 3G." Sure but once my page loads, which isn't usually that much longer (plus there's almost always a WiFi network to get on instead of using EDGE), I can navigate it much faster then he can. After he adds a 8GB microSD card to his, he'll have paid as much for his phone as I did for my iPhone (actually mine was free from work but you get the point).

    I had a Powerbook G4 and while OSX was great, I sold it and went back to XP... magically the things I "hated" about XP were blown out of proportion and I really couldn't think about going back to Mac. Their hardware is way overpriced for what you get.

    Vista Ultimate does have more apps than OSX. You need to include iLife for it to equal out.

    HTC is a real smartphone. iPhone is not (Not yet anyways). Im also interested to see what the iPhone can do, that the Tilt cannot.

    And although I have a notorious reputation that I hate OSX, I dont. Its not different than Vista and I said it many times it comes down to perference. I prefer Windows because ive been using it for over 15 years. My first computer was actually a mac, but windows was far superior back then.

    What I do hate is how a lot of Apple fanbois act. (This thread for example, taking something said in main forum, and reposting it in the macshack so apple fans can circle jerk and make fun of it. :rolleyes: ) Also Apple's marketing doesnt help its image either.

    Well to play devils advocate here.....

    Any response in the main forum to try and have a conversation between the two OS's gets the amazingly intelligent response of "fags"
