But it's not a few minor bug fixes... those are included in patches. W8 offers new features.
You pay per-machine for ALL OSes with official support (RHEL, Windows, Apple, Solaris, AIX, etc). As I already explained, Apple cost structure is different from other OEMs because they tie software to hardware. You are attempting to compare apple-to-oranges by only looking at hardware or software... not the required link per Apple.

Yes, you're paying for the OS when you buy an Apple machine but the $1000 you put down for each machine, is still $1000 out of your pocket per machine, whether it's to Apple, or a Windows OEM(sharing a portion of that with Microsoft). 5 years later, that same $1000 per machine you spent, can either let you upgrade for free on 99 out of 100 machines(one copy of Lion) or cost you an additional $150(for the full OS?) * 100 copies of Windows 8.

Did you actually read it? There's a reason why I said Lion and he purposely didn't highlight the section that says you may own 1 copy on as many Mac computers that you own or control...
If you consider nearly $450 for people in the US and $800 for Europeans affordable... $15 for Lion, on the other hand, is actually affordable.
See part one again. Yes, someone certainly needs to stop posting but they need to think again about who that actually is.

You got no idea what your talking about unless your playing only games.

That's not including the prices of Win 7 and Vista(which was especially expensive).

Apple gives warrenty only for 1 year. Heck even their 1tb HDD WD green costs 199$ for 1 year warrenty. First do some research before you talk off your ass. Apple OS is complete garbage. Its not even worth the 30$ with 0 support for private api's, broken hardware acceleration, and zero support to the devices we need to install. It can't even play Blu-ray h264 via software as Apple engineers are lazy enough to write their own Video accelerator via OpenGl or OpenCl. They still rely on hardware decoders to get the job done and still no Blu-ray decoder even on their every latest mac pro machines. Mac doesn't support injecting custom video decoders, OSX it is in-secure as of 2008-present, no professional apps.it doesn't have native driver support instead a virtual device need to be created to match the device written by apple. oh boy i can keep saying more!

  • zero support to the devices we need to install. - 3rd party manufacturer is too inept to write a driver for their own device? Huh?

  • no Blu-ray decoder - Same thing, same response.
  • doesn't support injecting custom video decoders - Are you kidding me? That's why there's custom video decoders like x264 and the like??? :facepalm:
  • it is in-secure as of 2008-present - This is based on what?
  • no professional apps - Now you're just trolling...
  • doesn't have native driver support - For? You realize you can add any driver you want just like most other OSs?
  • a virtual device need to be created to match the device written by apple - Broken English is too bad to understand here.
oh boy i can keep saying more!
A simple Google search for each of your misinformed statements would of solved your own problems... But based on your writing, I can tell that might be difficult for you.
This thread is about the Windows 8 OS though, not for your personal problems with OSX.

This thread is about the Windows 8 OS though, not for your personal problems with OSX.

Apart from Maya and Photoshop(still they don't have most of the features that windows does because of its rudimentary OS) tell me 1 single professional app that is their on OSX and works perfectly? Trolling? Lulz. You got no flipping clue what your talking about in the first place comparing Windows with OSX. OSx doesn't even support high-color more than 24-bit without dithering. Apple cinema display the biggest scam ever seen for its hefty price. And to write a driver in Osx we can't write it in low level to work with OS layer the developers are only allowed to create a virtual device which is like emulating device to run under osx eg:- if you take your mouse naga, most the features won't work on OSX even though their is official mac driver for it because the limitation is by the OS and not the driver. Even though windows adds keyboards like virtual devices developers still have hardware level access via extensions to add more gaming keys to the keyboard that razer and steel series sell. The same thing doesn't apply to Mac. You come here arguing about greatness of Mac you end up in failure everyday. Mac is a joke everyone knows that the developers know that. Windows users like to play premium even if its 500$ which comes packed with RDP where you have to play 300$ for a RDP client on OSX. Windows has far superior complier single biggest reason apps are lighting fast on Windows. We love to pay 500$ every 3-4 years to get the best out of our hardware.My Macbook pro does only 1 thing great and that is giving good battery life i just payed 2200$ for it and feel cheated for the kind of softwares they offer.

This thread is to talk about the Windows OS. Not to share your limited knowledge of what apps run on some other OS.

Well it really seemed as if you were.

As to your question. Final Cut Studio / Pro X [Though initially Pro X got beyond low reviews, though I'm not sure on the status now].

You also have Logic Pro and Aperture.

I also think there are a few more.. I just honestly cannot remember. It also doesn't help that since I don't own a Mac I'm inexperienced with their software base :\


In any case, article was a wee bit old, but still makes me want W8 more wheee.gif

Starting to want Windows 8 as long as I can disable metro. I can't get over the square windows. Square! Not curved (even though I like flow)!

What is the point of having final cut pro when the os itself doesn't support injecting custom software decoders? FCP was never a good software. It was popular because it had many pre-sets to add in the videos and FCP 10 had it like paid pre-sets for more pre-sets. Adobe premier pro and after effect is far superior package compared to it. And people never use FCP for their professional work .It takes videos to seek in FCP even with Quadro 4800 Mac pro for 3 secs. And even the render time is atleast 2.5x faster on Windows with comparable specs. The time when Mac was popular in professional editing was when a software called shake(now merged with FCP) existed because of superiority in rotoscopy. Then Adobe made it better and easier and FCP remains the same.
