Mac users are faggots and PC users are assholes. That's why I'm Amish.

Large Hadron Collider uses Linux.
User avatar #82 to #78 - EndeleanX (05/03/2012) [-]
And Linux distros are typically run on Microsoft computers, no?

I've not heard of a Mac having Linux on it.
User avatar #83 to #82 - ShaunG (05/03/2012) [-]
Microsoft doesn't produce computer hardware.

Also, Linux can be run on Mac hardware, it's just generally not done because Apple software and hardware are packaged.

Yep, my comment was retarded.

Forgot to login, the point still stands if its running linux. Its a pc!

Every computer in the home is most likely a 'PC.'

PC being an initialism for Personal Computer.
User avatar #168 to #136 - jizzmeista (05/03/2012) [-]
The phrase pc may stand for personal computer, but nowadays it has been adaption of basically meaning a computer with a tower and peripherals. For instance you wouldn't call a laptop a pc.

linux is an OS, windows is an OS!
A pc is a personal computer, and Linux runs on a pc, just like windows, according to this thing.. you're ******* retarded.
User avatar #137 to #134 - ShaunG (05/03/2012) [-]
A computer in a workplace is not a personal computer.

Think before speaking.

listen fag, the OS linux runs on a MICROSOFT COMPUTER, you're saying that Large Hadron Collider uses linux, thats true, but thats not the ******* point, the point is that they are using a microsoft computer, your comment is 100% unrelevant.

still not osx.

OS X is based on Unix, just like Linux.

The more you know.
#96 to #93 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
Linux is not based on Unix. It was made to be an alternative to Unix which is why it is very similar to it.
Get your facts straight!
User avatar #105 to #96 - Triskiller (05/03/2012) [-]
It's basic structure is still based on Unix. Unlike DOS which is something else completely.
#126 to #78 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
If it uses linux, ITS STILL A PC!
you absolute twat
#413 to #126 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
If it's a mac, IT'S STILL A PC!
you absolute twat
(PC = Personnal Computer)
#151 to #78 - bennybroseph ONLINE (05/03/2012) [-]
ok, no, I'm going to fix this once and for all. Linux is still "PC". PC means personal computer. The mac computer isn't "OS X' bull **** , we are talking about a ****** computer, not a ****** operating system. SO, PC includes Linux(and any of its freeware children) and Mac is an Apple made computer. Done. End of ******* Story.

tldr; Mac computer = the hardware not the operating system.

People buy Apple products for the brand, not for utility.

For example, the Samsung Galaxy, Motorola RAZR and Nokia Lumia are all superior to the iPhone and cost less, but people still buy the iPhone because of the Apple brand, and the certain something of coolness associated with that brand. All apple accessories cost $40, but people will still buy those piece of **** white headphones or rubber cases which cost less than 50 cents to produce, just because of the Apple brand.

Clothing is another example. Some people will shop at Abercrombie & Fitch and spend $125 on a shirt, not because the shirt is of better quality than a shirt at Old Navy, The Gap, Bluenotes or American Eagle, but because of the coolness and prestige associated with the brand.

What irritates me is when people purchase clothes that have the store's logo framed on the clothing. You're essentially paying the company to advertise their product. Don't do it, because it makes you look like a tool. Pic very related.
User avatar #149 to #133 - dustyshane (05/03/2012) [-]
Wait, You're kind of saying American Eagle is better than A & F, but you talk about people being tools and say the pic is related, and it's american eagle. I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to say about that.
User avatar #156 to #149 - deltadeltadelta (05/03/2012) [-]
What? I think you lost the point. I'm not saying American Eagle or Abercrombie & Fitch is better, I'm saying people often purchase clothing for the brand, not the quality.

The picture is an example of what I mean when people buy clothing with the store's logo stamped on. You're essentially paying the company to advertise their product.

I get most of my clothes from Bluenotes (Canadian store). Their logo isn't found anywhere on their products except for the tags. I like that.

I agree with almost everything you said.

But the case with the iPhone, for me is basically the fact that the iPhone is easier to use than HTC, Nokia etc.

People always use "HTC can do much more" as an argument, which makes perfect sense, but im not a high tech expert, so I actually just want a phone that does what i need, and does it in an easy way.

Same about the Mac.. Im sure Windows is hardware superior to mac, but mac just fits my needs better.
#242 to #133 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
So you don't think people are being tools when they massively hate on the expensive "clothing"? Seriously, both sides are tools. One of them suck apple's cock so hard while the other tries to put PC above Mac by trying to defend PC till the last breath. They're just materials, who ******* cares who buys what. The cock-sucking on both sides is just embarrassing.

Consider the following: All apple products are made to seamlessly integrate with each other. This functionality is what people pay for. One can not simply integrate all the various products that are produced by different companies. I for one do not own a single apple product and find this very annoying. I don't care about he brand I do however want things to work without having to have a different third-party software to link it all together.
#141 to #133 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
I use a MAC, not because it looks fancy and crap like that, and I completely agree with the iPhone being useless but I use my mac because I like the user interface and the music programs (espcially garage band). Also did you know the Shanghai Community International School gives kids laptops in middle school to do work on, but they actually do cool impressive stuff

I totally get that. Macs come with pretty good pre-installed video, photo and sound editing software. On PCs, you have to either buy or pirate a $600 copy of software or simply use Microsoft's ****** Windows versions.

to me the differences are: One plays games, the other plays .... well ... it looks nice(-ish)

yeah, macs aren't too great. I just want something to look at internet porn.

This is an unbelievably biased comparison.

I have been to the large hadron collider. they use mac in the reception, windows in the presentation rooms and offices, and a bespoke linux installation in the control rooms.

Long story short, **** you OP!

Macs are more frequently used by music producers, video editors, special effect artists, and photographers and such. But still mainly by hipsterfags and spoiled kids.

How about we all just shut the **** up... seriously nobody gives a **** . I've got both a macbook and a pc and I find uses for both of them that the other can't do. Let's just shut the **** up... and stop bashing people because of what they like.

i swear by pc and everyone in the professional world uses them (except some hipster jobs like writer ect.) but the one thing that mac does beat pc at is the software that is included. Imovie is not sony vegas but for the average user it is good enough, thats y some people who only use the pre installed stuff (the same people who would be using ie on windows) like macs better because right out of the box they are slightly better. Once ur done torrenting $3000 worth of studio grade software then the pc will slaughter the mac in speed, and cost to performance.

"and everyone in the professional world uses them (except some hipster jobs like writer ect.)"

There are plenty of professionals using mac, and how is being a writer a Hipster job?

Was Tolkien a hipster?
