As far as Mac vs. PC. I say defiantly PC. I will admit Mac’s are far user friendly so much so that even the most computer illiterate of individuals will end up looking almost like advanced users. Of course the problem with Mac’s they make better toys than they do computers simply because they only have like a very small percentage of the market share, and the price of one i-mac or a macbook cost is so high you can buy several other brand computers for the price of one of theirs. Any business person, student, or just at home user who really needs a computer…that would make a defiantly liability. The Mac-book air, is just stupid. If im gonna spend 1,500 dollars on computer that requires ANOTHER computer just to install software. I mean that is just silly.
As for PC’s Windows. the advantage of windows is that is the most versatile of operating systems. When you take up over 90% percent of the market share. I know for a fact there is no device, no software, or anything you can’t find that wont work with it.
As for Linux ...since it works on both Mac and IBM PC based computers….because they all are IBM based. I you are advanced user, broke, poor, or a cheap ass such as myself. Linux is perfect. It is fee, faster, and it brings life back to my old computers do to most due to its very low system requirements. That goes double if you Use Ubuntu because its the most user friendly one i know if and it comes with lots of great free software that is easier to install than windows….maybe Mac too.
With all being said…PC wins.
