[tgdaily] Companies group together to push Macs to enterprises - Page 3  

post #21 of 52
Im sorry but all you "MAC OSX is so hard to use". Go back and try it again. Stop being afraid of change

I switched to MACOSX 10.5 from Windows XP. I was happy with it. MAC has always been userfriendy & any avg user that has used XP can use MAC OSX (I'm sorry if you can't, you are below retared).

For those "MAC Crashes 3 out of 5 G5s". Next time, if a crash happens. Read the error or "google" it like the rest of us Windows / Linux user do


People are just afraid of change. Its sad but true

Well until they start making AutoCAD and all my structural analysis software for Mac, I don't think I'll have to worry about switching. Not too many engineers out there use Macs.

i think you are all missing a huge part of the picture that will decide if they adopt macs or not... IT people are trained (mainly) to use/fix PCs running a MS Windows OS.
post #24 of 52
The biggest fallacy that I see when people compare a Mac to a PC is that they are typically comparing a $2000+ Mac to a $500 PC.

It doesn't really make sense from a business stance to go OSX, the prices are ridiculous.

When they make comparisons the higher priced macs are usually workstation based machines running xeon based chips which makes them more expensive. The reality is that they are running similar hardware that makes them similar in the analysis. The pricing is just that, a number, and as such doesn't necessarily mean one is different from the other. I know for a fact that Apple does discount price to make it worth while for an institution to implement Mac based machines into an IT environment.

How can I google the problem if I can even go to google. They are the biggest POS I have ever used. I tryed to play a pogo game and it froze up. My PC never once froze up on pogo.com.

Because we all know workstations are the dominate PC's in business.

I work for an engineering company and I use a Dell with a Pentium D, 2GB ram, X3100, and XP Pro. Thats not exactly a blazing fast worksation, but it is cheep (A lot cheaper than a Mac) and it work rather well.

Just because it can't play (I'm sure it was a shockwave or flash problem) doesn't make it a POS. There is more to a mac than just games. I switched to mac because the fact that "I dont game". Mac OSX is just out of the box, everything ready to use type of OS. Windows is not the same (Drivers, Software, mods etc)

I think Apple sales a good number of iMacs to business costumers.
They still have a little price premium.
But not more than adequate.
A similar Sony VAIO also comes with brand extra ;o)

No modern Operation System should be able to freeze on a sandboxed (!) Browser Plugin!
That is big design error.

You can't rely on Software Developers to fit your OS on any situation.
It is the Job of the OS to hold the System stable and end Threads/Tasks that risk this stability.


It seems as more and more Software comes to Mac we see that OS X is far from perfect.
Windows made some good improvements on this sector.
Vista will end any Program without asking you before it goes down, it is even able to reinstall core-close Drivers on runtime.


I'm not that anti Apple Guy you might now image me to be.
But I think OS X is not very good designed (software wise) and got it's good image only because of the small Hardware and Software base.
