    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    I have to admit that within most technical circles here in Montreal, the Mac is seen as a toy and not a computer. Even though in many cases a Mac will outperform a PC (especially if the PC has shit 'standard' hardware in it as it the norm). The fact that it has colors, the fact that everything...

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    Nothing would please me more than to see the Mac dominate the computing market. Not because its OS is better (because I don't find that it is) but because Apple doesn't force its users to use some of its products the way Microsoft does. I have to admit Messenger is a better interface than ICQ's...

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    Don't get me wrong, I play games on my Dreamcast and PS2 more than I do on the PC, but for anyone interested in that, PC get more games and they typically run faster than their Mac counterparts. Either way, it's a discussion of quality and not really speed. Some would argue that Windows XP is...

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    Well for one thing, I'm not a die-hard Mac fan, I'm a Mac fan. That's it. I'm more fascinated with Apple's history than I am with the computer. The Mac is faster, that is true, however it's not as fast as Steve Jobs would have you believe. Yes Photoshop 6 is faster on a G4 than it is on a P4...

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    I can assure you that XP Pro is no harder to use than XP Home. The differences between the two platforms are negligeable. What a lot of people get confused by (and this surprises me) is the user management in NT versus 98/95. In 98/95, a separate user profile will still have access to the same...

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    Technically it's the same OS. However, the biggest differences are that Pro supports multiple processors (home doesn't which really sucks I find), Home doesn't have support for NTFS either. Home also runs every one of its users as Administrator which some hackers have complained gives hackers...

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    [/B] That's because you're not continually using the MAC. I don't see how you can claim that using MAC OS X and i reprint MAC OS X not 9, not 8.5, not 7.6.1, not 7.5.3. With Mac OS X the possibility of using the Mac continually for 97 days is a dream, not a reality. Look at the posts made on...

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    Hey AdmiralAK, learn how to read. I never said G3 150, i said PowerPC 150. Besides, you made no attempt to correct me in my assessment of Windows XP vs MacOSX and then you call yourself a trollbuster.

    OS X + XP: Who will really win?

    I'm using Windows XP corporate edition on my PC (basically it's the final) and I had the displeasure of using just about every Linux operating system and MacOS possible. XP is fast. My old system was a 533mhz with 256 megs ram and XP ran beautifully. With 768 megs ram, the experience is even...

    Xfree86?

    Xfree86 is basically X, or what people have come to know as X Windows.

    Longest Uptime??

    My longest Redhat uptime was 106 days with Redhat Linux on an AMD K6-2 366. The only reason it wasn't longer was cause I was updating the kernel. In Windows 2000, my uptime has been 42 days so far. That's the last time I installed a driver that required me to reboot. Here I was thinking...

    They stole our Duck!!

    You guys keep talking about XP as if you've actually tried it. From what I can tell from reading your posts, it's obvious that none of you have ever touched the OS. First of all, to the person who said that XP was slow and that his friend would return to ME I say 'laugh' considering Windows...

    Mac vs. PC @ Tech TV

    Actually what I meant about the RAM is that despite it being able to run regular PC133 ram, Apple still charges OUTLANDISH prices for that ram in their package. For instance, in Canada, 512 megs ram costs 112$ which would mean around 80$ in the US. However, buying an IMAC or a G4 and upgrading...

    Mac vs. PC @ Tech TV

    I'm not one to come out with false facts so I'll just basically say the truth about the matter. I've been visiting this site and many other Apple sites regularly and what I've basically concluded is that the MAC is a much NICER machine than anything the PC has to offer, but not faster or better...
