Re: Are Macs really that good?
I held the idea for a long time that macs just made people dumber; they are waay to reliant on eyecandy and just dumb people down even further away from the system and distracting them with shiny objects. The more I have used them, however, I have more respect as it seems to retain at least some of its unix roots, which is comforting.
Still, I have found it to be my experience that mac users, not all of course, but most I have ran into are naturally less self-sufficient at fixing problems as the system relies so much on aesthetics that the people are left completely helpless when it comes to a technical issue. Maybe that is one good element of Windows, it is such a terrible system that people are constantly, constantly, constantly fixing it and, therefore, get to know a great deal about the inner workings of the system, heheh.
Information can't be stolen. The whole system to handle "ownership" is obsolete. In a world where you can copy information, leaving the original intact, and wind up with the perfect copy, the debate over ownership is over.
