Mac can't do anything, at all, no form of programming, and it's just... linux, but, worse.

They're almost never compatible with anything, they actually DO slow down, but, admittedly, not as fast as windows

BUT, this is only because they do virtually nothing.

they're barely running ANYTHING, i'm pretty sure they don't have a task manager (as linux does not)

Also, inform him that everything they have said (except robs statement) is bull.


Windows XP is getting phased out, and from what i've been noticing, windows 7 is XP 2.5

The only thing that really slows it down in comparison (and what people are complaining about) is the aero GUI, which, you can just get a custom one, like the one i'm using.

And even then, aero doesn't do that much.

thanks.

YEP

That's the final nail in the coffin

I'm officially upgrading to Win7 x62 bit at the end of this year.

Fun Fact: Mac doesnt support Windows stuff. It supports Mac stuff. Everybody just likes windows better because:

A:they've never used a Mac
B:They can't figure out Mac.
C:They've always used windows and don't know different.

Macs and Windows are two different operating systems. Windows kick @ss for gaming. Macs kick @ss when it comes to creative projects. Both can be used for work. DERP.

Guys, this isn't about Mac vs Windows. This is about upgrading to Windows 7.

1) Cost.

2) Dad's approval

3) It's none of your f♠cking business if you're going to brag on about Mac.

What I hate about Microsoft.

If I buy a OS upgrade for an iPad, it'll cost no more than $20... maybe even a lot less. An app will cost about 99c

If I buy a windows... it's World War IIing expensive.
