    Default Mac + Win

    I guess all you guys are right. Was a die hard Win fan until last Jan-2004, decided to adopt a Mc, Powerbook 15' for a laptop.

    Both OS have their strength and weakness, which I shall not go into as they are greatly discussed on the net.

    But as the reason for adopting both, I notice, through my experience as a web page designer, some scripts just can't be displayed properly on a Mac, but on Win, it is ok. Of course, there are times when it is true the other way around.

    Most importantly, Mac OS really more resistent to unexpected crashes vs Win. Also a total recovery of Mac OS can be done in under 30min, while Win usually require a full 1 hour or more.

    Mac creates OS for their machine.
    Win creates OS only, but got Intel and OEM to come up with hardware.

    So I guess it is like Nikon cam with Nikon Capture and View = Best photo package.

    Anyone uses Spywareblaster and AdAware? I use both but don't know if these are sufficient? Thanks! At least you won't need those on a Mac!....

    First it's Nikon vs Canon, now Mac vs PC... ultimately, it's what you use your gear for and how. They are after all dead things.

    So, use whatever you want lah.... ^^

    i remember there's this 'RPC' virus thingy on the net, it keeps shutting down your computer. u dun need to touch it, it will come knocking on your door. so a firewall & a patch is a must.

    I now understand that your belief is faith based.

    Kahheng: believing into something does not need proof....if there is proof, then you won't 'believe' it anymore, but you would 'know'....

    But I must add: because there is no proof, or difficult to proof something, it doesn't mean it is not true. It's just that we don't have the means, methods to proof it......

    One can not proof there is God, one can also not proof that there is NO God....:-). But then off course, those who are Christians (I am not one) would say that the resurrection is that proof, I am not so sure.....

    We call them agnostic, one who neither believe or disbelieve.
