Very Important Software To Avoid
Vomit Is Sure To Accompany
Time, is an effortless construction :)
objectively speaking, there's nothing really wrong with copying each other's idea. the market gets more competitive & the products get better for consumers. juz like "u can do 10fps, i can also do 10fps". u get live view, i also have, who started it is no longer important. more importantly is who is still ahead of the market. Kodak (Fuji copy films but make them better & sold much better) & IBM (u no longer hear people say, buy "IBM compatible PC") r good egs. for illustration.
i m most supportive of open source, u dun get held by the neck like MS or apple. hope the day where Linux becomes mainstream will arrive sooner than i think.
How about 15yrs early for Apple? They started allowing users to implement parental control ever since OS 7 (might be earlier, but my knowledge only stretch as early as that era), but most users just never it or brag about what's taken for granted.
Themes 'thingy' came out (as part of Apple OS) since OS 8.5 but with third party it went back all the way to OS 7 (or earlier) as well. That's about the time when Windows 3 got launched iirc.
windows users are too busy taking photographs to actually bother coming onto a forum to bash another OS
why have a next ver of OS X when there's nothing really new & innovative? so many fans feeling happy & cool over it somemore... i really dun get it. guess its an apple thing.
like i mentioned earlier, since OS 10 till now 10.4, there's nothing radically changed. nothing wrong with that, i'll also be using XP for a long while too. open source progress is what i'm really interested in.

the way i see it... this thread started as a fun initiative was actually an excuse for bashing. like some of those people out there whom i've seen & known, always trying to belittle others around them so that they can feel superior, in the name of fun.
u dun see windows users bashing apple in the name of fun with things like:
mac: hi i'm a mac
PC: & i'm a PC. so mac, what r u doing?
mac: oh, i'm listening to my iTunes from the iMac, & i can do it on the iPod as well as mac book. what about u?
PC: i'm listening from my windows player. & hey, i can use other software like winamp too & i can download skins & themes & they r all free & fun & highly customisable to suit individual unique style!!
mac: oh... i'm juz listening to my iTunes on my iMac, & i can do it on the iPod as well as mac book.
PC: i can also download my fav music to most of the mp3 players in the market w/o worrying about compatibility or the need for special software to do it.
mac: i can only do that on the iPod with only iTunes. (looking sulky)
....blah blah blah.....
see what i mean. there's really no need for such threads, each to their individual needs. so what if u have a slow computer with 2 mins boot up time? make those who have 30s boot time more superior? its juz a matter of choice...

Rebanding features are very common for many manufacturers, not just Apple or computer mfgrs. Not trying to start any new flames but just take a look at Coke's New Coke and Classic Coke ad campaign. Everyone (coke lovers) got angry with the New Coke replacing the original blah blah blah..... In the end it's just to create awareness to sell more coke after Pepsi overtook Coke for a while.
And because you don't use Mac OS, you can just say there's no difference between 10.0 & 10.4, but the fact is plenty has changed, just not extemely much on the visual side. Based on what you have said, I can use your same logic to say that XP is just the same NT, with just some visual changes, but that isn't correct now is it?
And lastly, if you're so pro opensource as you claim, you should just dump XP or anything from M$ and just use things like Ubuntu, FreeBSD or some other flavours of Linux.

like i said earlier... open source is still in the works. when its more matured, i'll make the jump & yes, i played with Ubuntu before thank u. also used OS 10 & 10.2 & now using 10.4, the search has improved, that i noticed, nothing else really impressed me.Originally Posted by nikonrus
"windows users" refers to those within CS, in line with mattlock response. i've seen some 'ads' in youtube & i agree they r badly done w/o much merit, but i dun cont'd to search for more to amuse myself.
