Re: What OS?

Can't stand apple and, not too keen on the users either

Even the arty farty media industry is moving away from apple now, latest edit software from avid and protools runs on MS.

And yesterday at work they decided to upgrade the OS on a Mac and the bloody thing lost its scsi drivers Of course it wasn't my idea in the first place but whos problem does it become!!! LOL

Re: What OS?

I don't think its the OS that affects our view but the owner. WindozXP is a pretty good OS and so are most of the MS products BUT I still hate it.

I spend a lot of time using all the latest MS products (as we all do at work and home) but for home use I've never paid for one. I'm sure the richest man in the world won't notice but its nice to get a dig at his huge organisation

No they're not. Final Cut Pro is starting to become more popular than Avid.

That sounds like b0ll0cks to me.

You'd think an Alfa Owner would be slightly less prejudiced towards something that is so consistently and inaccurately viewed by people.

Re: What OS?

Movie industry runs Linux... mostly because MS or others can't quite handle the machines used to do the job

Totally agree - Though I've used Macs for more than 15 years now (currently own 5!), was forced to use Windows for 3-4 years as I am a computer langauge learning specialist and had to set up a lab at our university - all I can say is "thank goodness that's over!" - the second the project was over I returned all three PCs they gave me for the project, and have never looked back - I like my Macs almost as much as I like my GTA!
