Ye i thought it was funny. Microsoft makes a similar commercial to the PC vs mac bullshit commercials...Im not doubting some are funny. But they really tell people shit they want them to know...Some may not be entirely true...like the vista shit. I own vista..If you know how to use a computer how to tweak a computer..None of the shit you see in those commercials will be true


Example I have a laptop. It has Windows Vista Ulitmate editon. 4Gb ram...etc and so forth..No problems with vista... And this still refers to before i tweaked it all out to work better. I didnt have any problems with vista. I plainly always tweak operating systems i own for better efficieny..Guess im a computer nerd...actually I am i majoring in them haha

anyways what Im trying to say in those commercials MAC did tried to say vista is shit..blah blah blah...Partially true. It still has bugs. But its not as bad as they make it out to be. Especially if your edition is higher. Such as apparently ultimate edition for example would work better then home edition.

these types of commercials Microsoft is slow to the game....they needed to start coming out with this during the release of vista..








NO IM NOT SAYING VISTA is the best operating system or a good one...Im saying its just not as bad as the MAC commercials try to make it out to be.

recently Microsoft has released a experiement called the Mojave experiment

http://www.mojaveexperiment.com/?fbid=BCK0by
http://www.efluxmedia.com/news_Mojave_Experiment_Might_Be_Good_News_For_Microsoft_21000.html

basically they tell these retards to use a computer and say its a new operating system called Mojave that hasn't been released yet. So the people testing liked the Mojave operating system...then their like that was vista you were using and all them are like OMFG its not as bad as i thought

exactly even Mac users still have a pc laying around in the house just proves one reason why PC's have most of the market share

That is the thing I hate the most about Mac, can't get the real OS on a home built machine.

I still have a Windows computer in my house, but thats just because its my g/f's and I haven't installed Linux on it yet. Just giving it time before it needs a refreshing...its an old HP.

I liked Windows, easy to use, most of the time. But the viruses is why I'm no longer using Windows. I enjoy my Linux now that I have gotten used to it.

debian ftw.

the whole "virus" problem comes down to user error. i haven't had a virus in years, but i regularly have to fix friend's computers because they are "yes clickers"

and its not like windows pc's are inherently more vulnerable to viruses. the people who write them just tend to target windows because of its market share. how can you infect 100 million computers with your virus if you're only targeting 5% of the population. vulnerabilities are discovered in linux and mac daily, but are less often exploited because there is less to gain. a guarantee if mac ever takes over 50% of the market you will start seeing equal numbers of virus and hacker related problems.
