Apple "Apple really is is the better way, but why? No, not for the trendy industrial design, not for the OS, not for the CPU, but for the money. It charges quite a bit, but it is not the 'reassuringly expensive' factor either, the price/performance is nothing to brag about. What makes Apple better is quite simply the fact that it doesn't compete."

Not worth any price

Although Macs are obviously more expensive, I would not want one even if it were free. I think the interface is archaic, the one button mouse mentality the longest running laughfest in computing history and Apple Computer itself a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Like the title of this article, I am an anti-Mac-er through and through:

There are major reasons why Apple is last in marketshare. But no Mac bigots want to hear them, so I'll sign off now and take my kids to play in the snow.

Its his choice and he gets name called for it? Who is the idiot? If someone can be as productive regardless of the platform, thats all that matters be it Linux, Mac or Windows. So far Windows offers the most flexibility sad tho it is.

There are personal computer platforms that have even lower market share than the Mac, you know.
