Re: Why do you own a Mac?

Hello, again.

This thread is for those of you out there that think different and own a Mac. Tell us why you own one and why you would recommend it to others.

Thanks.

Thomas

Thumbs up

been using Macs since around 1987 or so..
over the years, I've used windows and it's different variations, I've used Linux as a desktop OS as well for a time.

I 'suppose' they all serve their purposes. But for me, when it comes down to what do I have to stare at all day.. the Linux OS, the Windoze OS or the MacOS, I'd prefer working in MacOS all the live long day.

I think for a lot of windoze users, would claim a lack of software, a lack of GAMES etc for the MacOS as a reason to stick with Windoze. Personally I don't play much games on the computer or wish to, and for what software I NEED, I've been able to find. If there was ever a program I wish I could run, it would be Internet Explorer. So looking forward to getting one of these new Macs with an Intel Processor.. so I could run IE in WINDOZE along side my MacOSX apps.. should I ever need to view a website in IE

Running MacOS started getting a bit tough in the OS9 days.. but the change to OSX was a welcome change for me, I like access to the command line when needed, already familiar somewhat with Linux and the command line.
I like being able to run Apache, and MySQL, on MacOSX

For me, I'll go back to Windows when you pry my Macs from my cold dead hands.

Hey Mudbug, I hope that SBLive helped in part or in some small way to "get the word out". In any event, Congratulations! There is no better feeling that posting that "sold" sign. Good Luck to you!

Cool Go Mac!

Thomas A?
If so, good to talk to you again.
Why own a mac? Because that is the only way to go, of course.
They are soooo much easier to use, provide superior capabilities to any person in any field.
My old G4 needs some work, but at least I have the hubbys to play with....plus each of my children have a new one. I was so disturbed to see a bunch of HPs in the local high school....eeewwww.
Later,
Mik
