Come over to the forums at MacUser and say that.

I hope you're joking cos as an alfa owner, you should know better than to make sweeping judgments like that.

Funny, I would have thought more alfa owners :cool: would be Mac users :cool:.

I agree 100%. I was completely surprised that there aren't more Mac users among us. Like an Alfa, a Mac is a statement of passion, a statment of gorgeous design, a joy to look at and a joy to operate. There are almost no viruses or spyware on Macs, the operating system is as solid as a rock, they are fast, and they are fun. Sure I could say a few bucks and have a Windows machine, but I could also save a few bucks and drive a GM...

... it's an excellent personal computer and that's why Microsoft has ofter been copying features from Macs (and viceversa of course).
As hardware, they are superior to most other manufacturers. Built, processor power etc... As sofware, OSx is great and is in fact much more user-friendly than Windows. As a overall package, it's fantastic. It's stable, self managing (does all the clean-up and defrag by itself - in windows the user feels the pain for everything), it has a lot of web sofware and applications tied into the client programs (iWeb, iPhoto, iTunes) which makes daily web (like creating a webpage a publishing it) a matter of minutes, not hours.

I am a heavy and pretty advanced Windows users for work and the reason why it's much more widespread is because, a few dacades ago, the Windows vision was better and it was to bring a PC to every home. The Mac back then was only aimed at specialist users (graphic designers and universities) and it lost significant market share as a result of Windows becoming the 'de-facto' standard. Now all businesses use it which further influences home buyers because it's the safe choice for compatibility.

You'll see now that win and mac compatibility issues (at least for mainstream programmes) are much less (i.e. yesterday I easily picked up a project plan and an excel sheet from my Mac, updated it, sent it back). And mac users are growing steadiliy. People are starting to appreciate the ease of use + the somewhat special feeling you get when you are using a mac. (it looks good, it makes you feel good, like an Alfa but without the build issues).

Back to Browser: Safari. (have used Mozilla for a while but it's heaver, then tried Flock for a while, which is the same but better if you are a Flickr user). Safari has the advantage of being quite good and part of the core mac software, which means I then also have access to my favourites over the web while I am away from my computer (which of course, you can do anyway if you are a delicious user).

opps, that was a long post...
