typical macintosh user dot com.

There is no reason for humanity to have ever made a typical macintosh user.
Anyone who says differently does so with a shit-eating grin. 8)

lol i'm impressed, mostly PC users!

8)

win PC, that's what we want, one dominant platform, don't care who as long as it is open


i just want to be able to run any program, that's it! Not like the old days when it was a battle between Mac, PC, Amiga, Atari, god that was awful, i think you lot forget how bad it was


Linux/Unix for Servers, Windows for Client Side Apps, we're in the golden age!

Ableton 8, NI Massive, Max 4 Live, other stuff

I've had a Mac for almost a year now and not once did I ever need to tweak anything.
When it's time to do any kind of music on my Mac, it seems to disappear as a computer and becomes part of the studio, an instrument in it's own right. My Pc never came close.
Who knows, maybe Windows 14 might turn it all around(he he) until then, spreadsheets and video games.
Plus you get stickers...
hmm, Live on MAc is different than Live on PC? you must be crazy or from US? or both?

Macs are gay, PC's are hetero. Like it or not, that's the truth! So you decide if you wannna be fags and fag enablers, who God HATES (!!!), or just normal healthy heteros that God does NOT hate!

... Because I never had a crash since November 2006 when I switched.
That's why. However being not brain washed (still) I can say that
even with Macs you have to be careful about updates...

nice, i hadn't have a crash since then myself as well (a not-by-myself-triggered like taking out half the ram while it was running :))

then again, i was using xp, then vista, now win7.. on tens of machines.. so no clue what you switched for :)

and macs don't crash. they freeze... that's entirely different blabla :)

Let's say that getting older and having used Linux since 2000 and you know what I mean, I was a little bit
tired of geekery and reading documents on the net about how to tweak Windows for music and the like...
So I buy myself a Mac. What satisfaction I got. Switch it on and play music. Nothing to tweak.
Plain out of the box. Moreover when you want to go serious fire a Terminal and Unix it's there
with its powerful commands in the shell reminding me of my Linux days.. which I still use in a VM
My Linux apps works via Apple X11 (Gimp/Open Office and many others)....
I forgot no registry... only plain text files. Unix. Beauty.
You can do it with Windows as well but I'm tired of taking care of my PC. I'm not a nanny. 8)
I'm someone with less time that needed to make music, Apple & Live put the focus back to what I like:
switch it on and make music and enjoy. Make it Apple or Windows but make music! :D
