Because pro apps work better (thank god for native RAW support), the whole system works better, the whole streamlined and faster productive experience. Duct tape? If you find it hard burning a driver CD and installing Windows then you should stay away from computers.

I'm still trying to find a use for Linux, to be honest. Macs have the pro software, Linux seems too hobbyist rather than productive, barring network and hosting servers. But unlike some I'm actually not mindlessly against something for crowd following reasons.

I'll just take the ad hom as admission of defeat. If you'd like to try again as an adult would you may.

Following 5% is a crowd? Hmm. I bought my first Mac because it was (at the time) the best laptop you could buy for 930. Bar none. First at my uni to take the plunge too after hating the things during college, a mighty big crowd follower it seems.

If you can't see how good they are then it's no worry for me.

Out of curiosity what am I against? I like and use both XP (MMF and HL2) and OSX (pro apps).

...And what exactly are these "pro apps"? And what magical quality of Macs makes them superior in that environment to the native application of the various IBM/PC OSs used by the vast majority of the market? Where are the benchmarks supporting these assertions?
Oh wait, nevermind. I just googled it quickly and I can see why you'd be reluctant to post evidence.

And yet every time we have a mac thread you foam at the mouth and spew the same bullshit.

Funny, I'm seeing other people (friends who are reluctant to mention too?) bringing up the same 'bullshit'.

http://hansv.com/cs3/

Or are you counting the CS3 beta?

Then we have the real world test I can run now. loading up the Tormishire map (10,000x30,000, 56 layers). Photoshop CS3 on the same spec machine - C2D 2.16ghz, 3gb RAM, X1600.
OSX uses 40% CPU (0.30% when idle), 335.7mb ram. (216mb when idle)
XP uses 50% CPU (one core perhaps? 5% when idle), 650mb ram (constant). Incidentally XP locks out the whole system whilst loading/rendering, OSX had the OS and currently loaded apps performing at full speed.
This is why I do everything but MMF2 and games in OSX.

ps. Pro apps - industry standard Logic, Final Cut Studio, Motion, Aperture, Shake, better pro format support native in OS and cross program support. Tools all pre-installed and monitors all industry level calibrated. Less crashes, bonjour networking and better workflow management= easier to hit deadlines (this is why all the studios I've worked with chose macs, them 3 reasons alone).

See this is why I never try and argue about macs, people either love them or hate them. If an argument springs up I (usually) just say that the person is missing out (unless of course they used a mac for a significant period and found it not to be for them).

But I do agree with Jimmi.

Check out http://www.xvsxp.com/finalscore/index.php for details on the differences and advantages of OSX over XP. Probably should have linked this from the start
