Sgt.Tabbykat : I'm happy with Win8, it's pretty snappy with my SSD and
Sgt.Turnbolt : Yosemite tho :O
Sgt.Tabbykat : It was a nice debate, sadly my retention for information is pretty poor, so in person my abilities are hampered. I'm aware of things but do not know everything by rote and rit in the technology world
Veam Studios : lol nice debate TK. You are a worthy opponent. I just wanted to back James up a bit against an overwhelming opposition of Apple haha
Sgt.Tabbykat : Coolio
Veam Studios : It might be a turd, but its the best dam turds this world has seen from any company which is why they have done so well... «link»
Sgt.Tabbykat : I like the registry of windows, allows me functional control of my system, it's resources and it's restrictions. I like the DOS architecture and I like UNIX, both have merits and drawbacks.
Sgt.Tabbykat : Industry defining? Or the prettiest polished turd out of the rest of the shite?
Sgt.Tabbykat : If it wasn't for Xerox, there wouldn't be a GUI for Macintosh
Veam Studios : If it wasn't for Apple, there wouldn't be a GUI for Windows
Veam Studios : All I am saying is, don't hate on Apple because clearly they have come up with some industry defining products like the iPod, iPhone, iPad where other companies have failed (Microsoft Zune, Windows Phone, Surface). And as for OSX, its a beautiful OS with the power of UNIX and without the limitations of the registry on Windows. XD
Sgt.Tabbykat : Well I suppose that was just for word
Sgt.Tabbykat : Actually it was for MSDOS back in 83 and Macintosh in 85. Both of which were "PCs"
Sgt.kkn : STOP FLOODING ME!!!!
Veam Studios : Microsoft office started on Mac first.. Why? Because Mac was first to create a PC market
Sgt.Tabbykat : *OpenOffice
Sgt.Tabbykat : The tablet market didn't take off at the time Microsoft and Nokia tried it because the technology wasn't there, the marketing wasn't good nor were people ready for it. Hell, full desktop adoption had only just happened a short while back. I like how Apple have a good globally accessible developer community, so did Linux and all web systems before it. Apple was not the originator. Ahhh, Apple Office, usage statistics, I would like to see the adoption differences between that and MS Office and Ope
Veam Studios : Nope Pages, Numbers and Keynote (apples Microsoft Office) are free. And they did create the markets you see - I didn't say they were first, they just took it to a whole new level that no other company was able to do. And there is no disputing that because if there was then we would have seen the tablet market for instance, years before when Microsoft attempted it etc. As for the App Store, yes there were some before but nothing like the globally accessed developer community that Apple helped to
Sgt.Tabbykat : Actually if you want to get really picky about a "phone/tablet" app store, the first tablet with one was the Nokia 770 tablet. i didn't know that. Looks weird xD
Sgt.Tabbykat : Wait a second, you have to pay for Microsoft Office as well on the Mac OS. Anything they provide is extremely inferior. So you are in the same boat?
Sgt.Tabbykat : *portion of the world. I sadly won't ever adopt Apple, only thing I like are their MP3 players. :0
Sgt.Tabbykat : I like to pay for the work put into my devices so don't mind paying for a new OS. Up until the current business model, all major updates and SPs for Windows were free. Only a major OS update like 7 to 8 was paid for. It is a top selling single line, but that's mainly because of the contracts they go with being the "most value-ful" because of the SP they sell the phone with. Adoption through individual purchases isn't as high as you think. The iPhone is not the top phone in a fairly larger portio
Sgt.Tabbykat : Actually apple didn't make the first marketplaces, they were developed a long time ago and saw a first major adoption by SUSE, red hat and fedora. Major adoption was by Handango. Mr. J only saw a hint back in 1993 and it wasn't Apple owned. It may be the target audience, doesn't mean I like them any less
Veam Studios : And Apple are doing major software upgrades for free. Would love to see Microsoft Office come for free with any Windows purchase, and all future versions of Windows free too. Doubt it though. But join Apple and that's what you get
Veam Studios : 3) Isn't good enough to be bought by the majority? You realise that the iPhone is the top selling smartphone is a lot of countries. Their single phone that they product does better than most companies entire lineup of phones purely for the fact that it is good enough.
Veam Studios : 2) The reason they seem elite is because thats the target. They are priced higher because of better build quality and brand. Its like a ferrari. You don't complain that they are elitist because thats exactly what they are.
Veam Studios : TK 1) Apple created the tablet, smartphone and app store markets you see today. If thats not wow then jeez.
