Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

What I love about reading the comments on OSNews.com are the number of people jerking off over specifications whilst ignoring that specifications aren't the be-all and end-all of qualifiers when it comes to evaluating a new kit. What use is it to have a high specced machine if it is a complete clusterf-ck when it comes to reliability and stability? Do people here actually think about more than just benchmarks and how fast their machine is? I sometimes wonder whether most people here just run benchmarks all day and trolling on OSNews.com about how their computer is 'so much better than Apple' because of higher performance numbers.

For me I couldn't give a rats ass about performance; I want a fast, reliable and functional computer that allows me to do what I want without all the rigmarole that the Windows world puts me through. Windows 7 is marginally better than Windows Vista but all the problems (I have listed in the past - so don't ask me to f-cking repeat them again) still remain. Its all very nice crowing about specifications but it is the operating system that makes or breaks the computer and quite frankly I couldn't give a brass wazoo about the ability to build my own if I am saddled with Windows being the only viable desktop operating system.
