Mac is not best choice for digital audio workstation anymore.
  • Pricy
  • Ordinray unsupportive customer serivice
  • Charging too high price for customize
  • Rediculous I/O port strategy - Mac head "Hey! Where is my firewire port?!"
  • Bad designed system - Mac head "Wats teh hell is going on! My mac is smoking!"
  • Bad cost-performance
  • Low performance

I just don't get how people can have such feelings towards a OS. Use whatever you think is best.
I own both a Windows 7 desktop and a 2011 MacBook Pro and both have their uses. In terms of real-live (audio) perfomance, my MacBook is winning.

What about the selfish GUI? Surely you can't use that with a good conscience.

I have no feeling. I have witnessed the data and posted the URL. I gave objective opinion based from the data and example. You still have choice. No need to worry.

I clearly stated "digital audio workstation". Don't bring other factor from outside of the topic. Also, you rather mixed up OS and one of the physical products, which cuased your argument failed. No doubt, as I said first, Mac is not best choice for digital audio workstation anymore.

so when you mentioned the GUI you were not talking the OS at all because i think the GUI of the OS is handled by the... OS :roll:

but like you said lets get this back to the real subject which is MAC or PC which is a great discussion because i've always struggled to find such a topic using google :roll:

that reminds me i must start a Live9 thread. thats another subject i've never seen discussed anywhere...

Thanks for settling that. Now: What kind of bear is best?

Objectively speaking, and only based on data, mind you. Bonus points if you can cite a five-part study.

It's one of example user encountered. I didn't say everyone said so. That's why I linked to video. Needless to say, GUI is almost equal the user experience for like us who are not programmer, when using OS.

I used a first generation Mac when Windows didn't even exist (DOS only!) and have used both OSes ever since. My personal experience for music applications is that I have always had less problems with Mac OS, but both do the job. Spend your money as you see fit.

The only point worth making in this played-out subject, IMO.

ehh scuse me "berrrp" 'cough cough...uhh scuse me comin through uhhh before I go I'd just like to say that umm of course pencil rocket is the uh victor in this here uhh domestic disturbance uhh no relation reason being and I quote myself when saying this that there has never been a documented case of either a pencil or a rocket telling a lie, that's a falsehood for you laymen breaker breaker ease on down the road therefore by
him being the very definition of a pencil and a rocket simultaneously that would mean that he is not only right once but twice in this regard, that is
if circumstantial evidence is allowed to prevail in this case as such it were were it not such therefore it is so so be it, all in favor of going to the bathroom say i and yes ladies and gentlemen it looks like the i's have it so onward I must go....toodle loo
