Apple Are you a long time Windows user curious about the Apple Switch campaign? Are you wondering if you should try it? Read below for my experience with the whole thing... twice. Just over a week ago I purchased a new 12" Apple PowerBook G4...

Welcome to the new religion!

Apple has become a religion amongst many. Some dude here posts constantly pro-apple comments, I really don't know why he bothers. And I don't get the PC vs. MAC stuff. PC stands for Personal Computer, and a Mac is also a Personal Computer. On the other hand the x86 platform doesn't belong exclusivelly to Microsoft. The MAC is only a Computer! It is a tool to do day to day work! It has a tight integration comming from one vendor, and it is high-qualitty. Lots of people know that. And yes, it is somehow expensive. I don't say I can't afford one, because anyone who works can afford an under $2k Computer. But why would I trow my money at it? I am not a Windows user, and I'm not so crazy about OS X eather. But then again, how could I, and many others laugh to death over the comments here? How could we have some fun in the late evening? So keep on the trolls, bashes, PC vs. MAC arguments, stupid PRO PC or PRO MAC arguments, stupid lies like :" OS X crashes all the time", or "Apple will die anythime soon", or "I can't get anything to work with my MAC", or on the other hand the general "The PC is crap" comments. Without all these comments many people wouldn't have fun and this site would run out of busines.
On the other hand I'd love to see articles like: "A quick&dirty PHP tutorial", or "How to set up Linux on a laptop corectly", or "How to code in OS X", or "How to use the Windows GUI API..." and the list can go on. Maybe I should submit a couple of these in the future....but people don't have interest in this kind of stuff, I forgot...Instead we have to read how a MAC integrates into the life of a grown up with the brains of a 12 year old (no offence meant by this). But really, if I'd had 2 kids, the last thing I'd would be obsessed about would be the question:" To buy or not to buy...". I don't think this is a soap-opera web site, its a computer-tech orriented site. Then again, I may be wrong, cause I just finished work and I'm tired....
