    This just confirms what we already knew. Macfags = Hipsters.

    Mac people are 13% more likely than PC people to say they want to be "perceived as unique and different to make my own mark."
    Pretty ironic considering most of the Apple hardware is the same design baring the revisions. Generically white

    PC owners: fat slobs living in a basement
    Mac owners: Skinny aristocratic slobs living in a office

    That image above seems a load of crap, sorry but really people, seriously?
    PC people love The Office and South park but Mac people love the Office? Mac people generally read Macworld, wtf? 80% of Mac people are more likely to be vegetarians? It's all such old fashion stereotypes and needs to be taken as a joke if not worse.

    Rant over lol

    Essentially this.

    The thing that bugs me most about the generic mac user is that there are so many of them on my university campus, and they all fit the damn stereotype. They all bring their laptops to class, because they have to show off the $2500 of overpriced crap they bought. Girls even tend to accessorize theirs to match with their bags/coats/whatever. Even more lulzworthy are the people that bring iPads with bluetooth keyboards and act like they're a real computer. They'll go on and on about how macs "just work" and "don't get viruses", but the minute something goes wrong, they have no clue what to do since they have no troubleshooting skill and no actual computer knowledge. Within my friend group, I'm the guy people generally turn to when their laptops have problems, and when it's a macfag, I merely sigh, tell them I don't know how to do *whatever* on a mac, and that they should've gotten a real OS.

    Then they bitch about not being able to run our industry standard engineering software on a Mac. But of course, due to their incompetence, they've never bothered learning about Parallels/Bootcamp/whatever else.

    Then they design powerpoint presentations that lose all of their images mid-lecture or mid-presentation because they're saved in some weird Quicktime compatibility mode that doesn't display properly on Windows.

    Honestly, whenever someone tries to go all pro-Mac on me, I remind them that they've paid twice the price for proprietary hardware and an operating system that's just a ripoff of *BSD with a price tag, and it generally ends it there.

    Linux users I tend to respect, since they actually have to know what they're doing. And sure, the occasional mac user does too. But the overwhelming number of them, at university anyway, are complete morons when it comes to computers.

    yes.

    yes.

    yes.

    yes.

    yes.

    the majority of mac users i know like mac because its so "simple" and "just works". i dont have the heart to tell them they are really just built for people either too lazy or stupid to figure out a simplest task on their own. and that "just works" thing is bs as everyone knows. the second something goes wrong, even something simple, you got to take it back to the mac store, which around here is over 180 miles away. because their os is so "streamlined" and designed for the average user to not have to mess with anything (because they shouldnt have to, it should "just work") that when something goes wrong there is too little to go on on how to fix it. that is because mac wants the user to have as little control as possible over the os, which makes fixing anything a bitch. now ive worked on pcs and macs both extensively, although i wouldnt call myself a mac tech. working at the local university and talking to the "mac tech" there for about 5 minutes i could tell he was an idiot who knew only slightly more than an average mac user.

    well thats my vent. enough with the mac bashing. ive said it before and ill say it again: macs biggest strength is also its biggest weakness. because everything is proprietary they can stay ahead of the game easier than pc, ill admit. if mac wants to phase out floppy discs and not support them, they can. they are one company with all proprietary hardware and software and they can make that decision to phase out older tech at their choosing to hasten their technological advance. because not all pc hardware and software is proprietary and controlled by a number of companies, the pc market takes years more, limping along on legacy hardware that is much more difficult to phase out than it is for mac. mac is able to push things like that on their own where as if the pc market wants to make a change like that there has to be deals made and a general consensus and all that boring enterprise politics stuff. however because of the reasons above, among many others related to macs proprietary tech that i wont get into, this same strength provides many disadvantages.

    Agreed with ca_aok.
    Most people I know who own a Mac are morons and basically not tech savvy at all. They bought it because it had a logo with an Apple behind, some even admitted to that.

    And they swear by it, it owns Windows. Just fucking ridiculous this fanboyism around Apple.

    Exactly. I don't even hate MacOSX. It has its merits, just as Windows does. And I'll be the first one to admit that Windows has hundreds of problems with it (as does OSX, and linux). I even own an iPhone.

    It's not the system I hate, it's the people that use it, their stupidity, and their sheeplike need to buy anything with an apple logo and the letter "i" stuck in front of it, regardless of how shitty it performs compared to the competition. With the iPhone for example, I didn't want a Blackberry due to lack of apps and customizability, plus lower end hardware. And I actually wanted an Android, but my shitty Canadian carrier only had phones from the era of the HTC Magic available. So iPhone 4 it was. Most people who have them, however, bought them because it was trendy.

    What exactly are these faults of Linux?

    The only faults people seem to find is when they attempt to plug their Windows hardware into their Linux box and the drivers don't seem to work or complete and utter useless users who complain that it's not a clone of Windows.

    Apart from the above I can't think of anything wrong with it - it works and there's actual thought put into each revision of most distro's unlike Microsoft and their aesthetic revisions in attempt to intrigue the dumb (noob) users.

    Just to shake things up:

    The main problem with Linux is that it's not user friendly. Yes, you can slap Ubuntu on a machine and a computer noob might be able to figure out how to do some basic stuff, but there's a fair bit of command line based fun that's daunting to most users. Then there's a general lack of driver and software support and a community fragmented into countless distros.

    There are plenty of good things about it too, of course... it's open source, packaging is a nice way to compartmentalize everything on a system, it's stable, it's generally not resource intensive. I use linux on my remote webserver, like the rest of the world, but I'm certainly not ready to use it as a desktop OS.

    Oh, and OpenOffice blows fucking chunks compared to MS Office. Every part of it just seems like a pale imitation.
