Thread: I hate Mac

  1. #1

    Default I hate Mac

    I've been using Mac recently after 10 years of using Windows. The only nice thing about the Mac is the cool sleek/slick hardware design (and it looks nice as a coffee table accessory). But OS wise, it really sucks. I love Windows. It's so much more productive and faster. On the Mac, things happen slowly one slow click and drag at a time (even after learning the shortcuts). It really puts me off. I feel like I have to slow down for it to catch up with me. Maybe I should learn to be more patient.

    Speaking abt this, i hate linux too no doubt i m proficient in its use but imho i dont think it's worth wasting time on when it comes to troubleshooting. User base forums normally reply with RTFFAQ when you ask for help. That's the sad case maybe those ppl need some social life Windows is very much idiot friendly.

    hmm need more ram? mine only started to slow after I accumulated a hell lot of pics and programs on it. still working with basicc 512mb here. but then it sure beats having to reinstall my OS every 2~3 months. not to mention viruses too. Just these points alone, I can learn to patient with it.

    Speaking of Linux, I had a lot of fun setting up the older versions when you actually had to be technically inclined to do it. Now it's becoming ridiculously easy to set it up. After setting it up, I didin't know what to do with it. So after 2 days I would reclaim the partitions, using it as data. Windows rules!!

    I have a G4 laptop and a dual processor, 1 GB RAM G5 workstation at work. They are equally slow. I don't feel the G5 being significantly faster. In fact I can't tell the difference.

    oh, so sorry to learn of your experience with Mac. Dump it for there will be no future developmental path for Mac accept to make it looks more sexy for fashion shows.

    They need to depend on Microsoft technology anyway.

    how long have you been using the mac? give yourself a bit more time to get used to it

    what do you mean when you say "one slow click and drag at a time"?

    LOL! I read some news this morning in some country, iBook was going for $50 or so. Somehow they managed to learn our KiaSu-ism and create a little chaos.
