Hey! c:

 

Here's a hypothesis:

 

Which do you think is 'better'

 

Windows, Mac or Linux? and why?

 

:D Happy debating!

You would have to define "better" very clearly for this age old and oft repeated chestnut to be valid I'm afraid.

 

I use Windoze unwillingly sometimes to flash/control/modify some tech such as phones, managed switches, specialist radios etc,

 

I use Linux ( Ubuntu) willingly and occasionally for some similar tasks.

 

I use Mac OS X willingly every day for video production, editing, compression, grading and a hundred other tasks.

 

I could not use one platform for everything.

My one eye is closed so I can keep an eye on myself. The other eye remains cracked open so I can keep an eye on you. For you are beautiful and someone must hold a space for you to shine and live in complete freedom when you will not see. What this means in literal context is this: Each of my two eyes are looking 'at you' and 'for you'. – Dustin Strong

Mac.

  • Best I've used for my studies. Art school student, do a lot of photography and design, works whatever way I want it to.
  • Best I've used for web browsing and general media consumption. Never any fuss.
  • Good enough for my gaming needs. I'd like more compatibility obviously, but a willing sacrifice to make for everything else it is.

I build software for all of them both natively and not. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages from both an end user point of view as well as a technical standpoint; all of which are far too numerous to list out here for debate.

 

I used to cultivate a strong hatred for everything Apple. However these days I have chosen to adopt the same doctrine that I apply to programming languages - I shall not dislike a platform but instead seek to love it for its specific merits.

Apple products are nice but I'm currently sticking to Windows because half of my games can't be played on a Mac without a wrapper. I can't really say for Linux, since I've never used it, although there's probably compatibility issues that I don't want to mess with either.

 

@DefaultAlex, what do you prefer?

And random question: When's your birthday?

Well, I think that all of them are unique in their own way and are used for different reasons, but If I was to pick one, It would definitely be Windows. Actually until a couple of years ago, I really didn't like apple. It just seemed so.......shut down? Like you couldn't really do anything with it apart from what apple actually /wanted/ you to do with it you if know what I mean?

 Also my birthday is November 1st, I was supposed to be born on Halloween the day before but my mother refused to give birth to me :P When's yours?

Yeah, I know what you mean. :P Honestly I'm just too lazy to get used to a different system.

I'm March 15th, the day that Julius Caesar was assassinated.

I never liked the Romans much, Greeks all the way eyy

I've worked with Windows at work for many years, but at home I mainly use my Mac.

I like the way on Macs the hardware works so well
