OSNews, Generic OSes Over the years, we've occasionally run an "Ask OSNews" feature, wherein a reader asks us a question and we answer it publicly. Lately I've really been enjoying Slate's Dear Prudence advice column and the ever-interesting Straight Dope, and I thought we should see if we can get more OSNews readers to submit questions, and turn Ask OSNews into a more-regular thing. If your question falls outside of our domain expertise, we'll try to track down an expert to help out. And of course, our responses will always be supplemented by further advice from OSNews readers in the comments. Questions are welcome on any topic ranging from OSes and computing to science and geek culture. Contact us with your questions. (Please include "Ask OSNews" in the subject). Today's question is from a young student in Hungary who's seduced by the faraway siren song of Apple's marketing and wonders, "should I switch?"

Or am I making that up?

So you're saying that returning my Mac to the store will magically fix OS X kernel bugs? Yes, you are making that up.

I grouped it all under the same heading, obviously you lack the intelligence to distinguish between things that can be fixed versus things that are part of the design by don't fit your preference.

Don't care, broken is broken. The customer is the king.

So you can fix it! oh, so it is a bug and Apple fixed it?!

No, it isn't fixed. There is no update which fixes it: even after installing the latest updates it still doesn't work.

If it doesn't work you take it back; if it keeps freezing, take it back, keep taking it back until the damn thing is fixed.

Taking it back won't fix software problems. I know this because I'm a developer.

You think that sitting in the corner like an emo is going to fix it?

You think that personal attacks make your points more valid?
