hi everyone,

This is not a thread regarding gamesalad, so i insert it on the miscellaneous category :)
i just installed the windows beta and I would like to share with you a big different between windows and mac.

-windows installation: I downloaded the file and immediately my antivirus delete it because it thought that it was a virus :( then i installed it and in 3 minutes appeared around 4 messages to confirm the security of the program and various thing.

-mac installation: I simply downloaded the file and immediately installed without any problem.

so my question is: Why a lot of people is still using windows?????? (except hardware)

thanks ;)

    Anti-virus programs can be a bit hyper-vigilant in terms of what they deem a threat. But as Mac recently illustrated, even they aren't almost immune from viruses like they've trumpeted all these years. ;)

    Windows...well, there are a few schools of thought on that. PC's in general, I feel, are much more 'accessible' in terms of how you're able to dig into their guts. You're also able to easily upgrade/alter your computer configuration. Mac...well...Mac tends to like to hold your hand or completely disallow you the ability to really open the hood up and look at what's inside. Windows is essentially a portal for this, for lack of a better term, ease of use. It's not as unstable as most Mac users might have you believe and, just like Mac OS's, has it's positives and negatives.

    Having been a PC user since I was a child I can attest to their general stability and flexibility...but having been an intermittent Window's user for quite some time I can say I've never been overly fond of how they do things.

    Why do you keep using that word? I do not think it means what you think it means.

    @saladStarightShooter you have right, but the only thing sure is that mac is more user friendly and easy to use. ;)

    I think it's reasonable to appreciate that all people are different and what one holds more valuable, another might disagree. I tend to think computers are becoming more like appliances/cars/other complex items that we expect to work almost all the time and that a lot of people don't want to take the back off and poke around. But just like people like to soup up their cars and others don't touch it ... then the same in the computer world. As the spread of computer devices like iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad, Android etc, I can imagine them becoming more appliance like and less accessible and hackable ... and at that time they should just work! Having said all that wtf was 'Vista' ....
