Hardly. You see, the majority of people aren't teenagers with nothing better to do. We have jobs that require extensive use of technology for more than Funnyjunk. This becomes more and more true as time goes on, not less. No kids used the computer when it first came out, because they were extremely expensive and they were only really usable if you programmed them manually. It's just now that kids have easy access to computers, software, games, and internet that they have interest in the technology. But they still make the smallest group of technology users in the world, which is why WIndows has such a huge advantage. And now that Windows is seeming to cater to this same group with Windows 8, Linux is getting more and more use.

So I'd have to go against that idea that it doesn't matter to anyone other than high schoolers.

I'm not arguing with such a pretentious douchebag. You didn't make a single credible point in that statement and made lots of straw man attacks instead of actually addressing the topic.

> Nobody said anything about 9gag or reddit, I said teenagers - because they're statistically the ones that would only use a computer for the web.
> Nobody said anything about technology or programming fields. I briefly addressed the fact that in the early computing age where a few kilobytes still cost a few hundred no software really existed and you had to do everything by hand. But that's hardly a point to attack?
> L337 H4XX0R? Really? What exactly are you trying to prove here?
> No, most jobs don't, you're right. But anything that gets anything higher than minimum wage or very, very low salary does. Please, list off some jobs that don't require using a computer and yield even a middle class salary and we'll talk.

Only macs cost more.

Anything you can build a mac to do, a PC can be built to do the same thing for roughly two thirds the cost of a Mac (at open market pricing, sense I know people I can get it for roughly half of the price of a mac with the same stats).

Its late, so if I remember I might do that tomorrow.

But, facts are facts. For mac, you have one company producing everything, so they charge more for parts because they can.

For PC, there are dozens of companies producing everything, so the competition drives down pricing.

I'd say we're working two different jobs, brother. They each do their own really well, but they seldom come into contact, and when they do, PC usually comes out on top. It's like... The chocolate factory and peanut processing plant that don't normally cooperate, but they're hired every once in a while to make a candy bar.

I understand the community attached to the computer brand is typically idiotic, and computer noboby, but the computer itself works fine.The only real disadvantage i see to it is that it can't run .exe files, and you can't manipulate the computer very easily.I.E install more ram, internal memory, upgrade graphics card. But i can't see any reason why you'd want to do that if your not gaming. In terms of business, mac is more optimal. TL;DR both computers have advantages and disadvantages, but overall work well and get the job you bought the computer for done in the end.

No it's because you can infect more computers by making a PC virus than a Mac virus. PCs cover about 95% of the market, and Macs share the remaining 5% with it's Unix and Linux cousins. (That's consumer and business computers, servers are left out of those stats)

There are several OSX viruses.

If you want a truly virus free OS, go Linux. Only one virus for Linux has been made (that people know of), and it was made in a lab, to test if it was even possible. It was.
OSX is based on Linux, so yes, it is possible to make a virus for OSX.

Incorrect: They are both branches of Unix.

You actually listed the inherent problem with a closed OS (Mac or Win) in a previous post, "Unknown code". Since you can't ever see the underlying code you need to wait for Apple/MS to be aware of the vulnerability before they can fix it. Whereas in an open system, vulnerability fixes can be noted, fixed and applied by anyone, and if it's good It will be incorporated into the next kernel release.

Also, the Linux Kernel doesn't change that often as you state, most vulnerabilities are with installed software which have excessive permissions. Ie, running Apache as root basically opens the server up to anyone who finds a vulnerability in your website or Apache itself

Here's a fun fact: open up terminal in OSX, type in "rm -r -f /" and it will delete half of your OS without even entering the root password...Now obviously there's a password to log in to the OSX desktop, but Most Mac users don't even set it. That's a prime example of lack of security protocols in OSX (syntax might be a little different). That lack of security can be exploited by a piece of code if it was perhaps injected via Java, or if Safari was hijacked (which until OSX 10.7, was as loose as a hooker to exploits)

Nope, sorry, Macs have had, still do, and always will, have viruses, just like every other OS. Some of the Mac viruses over the years:

Elk Cloner
INIT-29-B
HC-9507
AutoStart 9805
OSX/Leap-A
OSX.Macarena
AppleScript.THT
OSX.RSPlug.D
OSX/HellRTS

Every OS will have flaws, bugs and loopholes. It is impossible to create a 'perfect' OS with no security holes.

That was a very pointless comment to make. Every virus can be 'fixed', by simply formatting a hard drive, even a boot sector virus can be removed with some common sense and a low-level format.

And seriously, 'nothing'? for example that last one, OSX/HellRTS certainly did something alright, It opened a backdoor in the system for hackers, allowing for complete remote access of the system. That's certainly not just 'sitting there'.

So, what you're saying is... Mac is for people who don't know much about computers? Because that's all that I really got out of that comment.

Also, the software can't 'fix itself'. The program itself can't even do anything. It just has to listen to the server for an update, (which is of course, what every program ever does, not just Mac programs). Not to mention Zero Days are practically impossible to pick up: A Zero Day can only be fixed after it has become widespread. This basically guarantees that a successful virus will infect many computers before a fix can be released.

If something is easy to use, then it's possibilities are generally limited. A very 'powerful' program/OS/engine/what-have-you will be much harder to use. Photoshop being a prime example, a brilliant piece of software for someone who actually knows what he's doing, but extremely complicated to someone who's never seen it before.
Mac's design being (overly, in my opinion) simplistic works to keep the less informed able to use it, while extenuating problems for average and high-level users, such as myself, and many on the internet.

My father used photoshop extensively, and thus, Macs: I'm aware of what Macs are capable of, but in comparison to something such as Linux (even just Windows in some cases) the ability to both customise and change things is severely limited, (on account of the ease of use/simplicity), which is a bane to power-users, programmers, system DJ 4DM1Nistrators, and everybody in between, such as myself.

Well there's no Windows virus that can't be fixed. but sometimes it just easier to do a fresh install on a new hard drive and copy your files over from the original hard drive. Or use Linux and keep up with the most recent kernal. The massive community of coders fixes problems almost before they happen most of the time.
