I should note that Microsoft has repeatedly found itself in antitrust suits in the US and EU for leveraging proprietary and hidden functionality tied to Windows to lock people into using Windows.<br> + <br> + My personal experience has been that Apple's hardware has been more reliable than than of other vendors, and also more reliable than my own home built hardware. I run many different machines in many different configurations with many different operating systems. The easiest to maintain, by far, are the OS X boxes, followed by the Linux systems. I find myself putting much more time into maintaining my Windows systems (ie. keeping them up to date with security patches) than I actually spend using them! It also takes me the least time to make an OS X box do what I want it to, and I get the best performance on most things that I do with OS X (again, with Linux in second place and Windows last.) There are also many nice features on OS X that I use heavily that simply have no equivalent on Windows (although they can usually be replicated with some effort on Linux).<br> + <br> + If you are looking for the very cheapest system, you probably won't find it from Apple. Apple doesn't want to sell to the very low end of the market, because it isn't profitable. Many people argue that you can get a Windows system more cheaply than a Mac, and that is true if the systems do not have equivalent hardware (again, because there are no Macs at the very low end of the market.) If you price out systems with nearly identical hardware, the Macs are usually priced about the same, and sometimes for quite a bit less (check out the Mac Pro vs. Dell's 8 core Xeon workstations.) That's a business decision on Apple's part on which part of the market they want to pursue. Many people don't agree with it, but Apple has remained extremely profitable while companies like Dell are now in deep trouble, so it looks like a viable strategy.<br> + <br> + If you are looking for the "best" system, that really depends on what you are doing with it. For certain tasks, I'd recommend Linux over OS X, and for some, Windows might be the best choice (if you mainly want to play games, for example). For the sorts of tasks that most people do, I'd recommend OS X. Many people dual boot Windows on Macs for games, or Linux on Windows boxes for development work.<br> + <br> + If you are very security conscious, I would recommend OS X to most people. For people who are *very* security conscious, don't mind lots of additional work, and are technically savvy, OpenBSD or FreeBSD might even be a good choice. I would not recommend those for most people though. While I probably know as many people at all skill levels with Macs as PCs, it is always the PC users who have the virus infested machines, spyware, adware, and other problems, never the Mac or Linux users. If you are even more security conscious, I would recommend turning off your computer and picking up a good book. :-)<br> + <br> + On the commercials: I find them very entertaining, but obviously some people don't like them. Microsoft recently responded to the ads by calling its operating system chewy and delicious, and comparing it to dress shoes and churros. (Really! It did!) I'm not sure why this would get me to use Windows, even if churros are very tasty, since I don't usually try to eat my operating system.

That sounds like a lock-in to me. At this point it seems to me that a person's choice of computer is based solely on their own preference. There doesn't seem to be any major innate superiority.

For example, if you order your PC from Dell, you are locked into Dell's service and support (unless you decide to buy your own replacement parts instead of using Dell's components.) Most computers from PC makers ship only with Windows, so you are locked into both Microsoft and your hardware vendor for service. Of course, you can, as you mentioned, put Linux or another OS on your PC. But you can also do this with any modern Mac. In fact, unlike a PC, you can also run OS X (legally, with proper support and updates) on your Mac. You can not do this on a regular PC. So on a regular PC, you are locked into fewer choices of operating systems. Consumer Reports regularly rates Apple's hardware as having the fewest problems. That doesn't mean that you will never have a problem - just that you have a lower probability of having one. --["Users/IDoNotExist"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Apple Inc.http://daviswiki.org/Apple_Inc.2008-12-21 17:02:04IDoNotExistComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Apple Inc.<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 58: </td> <td> Line 58: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-12-21 16:02:04'' [[nbsp]] I loved your macbook.

I think this is a page that should be left to other sites such as wikipedia. --["PeterAnselmo"]<br> - * The majority of the entry is lists of locations for purchase and repair and tips on buying if you are an educator or student (which is a good chunk of Davis). How is that not Davis oriented? The brief into paragraph gives a quick "What is it", links to the Wikipedia article, and then the body of the entry is purely local information. It's pretty much the textbook example of a local-specific entry dealing with a general topic. --["JabberWokky"]<br> - * Should Dell have a Davis Wiki page because they offer a general student discount?, Should HP and Toshiba has Davis Wiki pages? - both are more common and they are sold at more local computer stores than Mac. None of the discounts, recalls, or tips sections (3 of 5 total) have anything Davis-Specific. Granted this is just my opinion, but I stand by it. -["Peter Anselmo"]<br> - * Maybe the fact that Apple is LESS common and sold at FEWER stores actually warrants the page since Apple-related stuff is harder to find. Also, the info on this page is useful to Apple users in Davis. For example, most people probably don't know about the student developer discount (which could save you a lot of money). Granted, the discount's not offered exclusively to Davis students, but it's a discount that Davis students may otherwise miss. On the flip, going into the history of Apple wouldn't be appropriate here. --["KaiTing" Kai]<br> - * The real reason this page exists is because the powers that be in this wiki like Macs, so exceptions are made to the usual guidelines. That is the way the bias goes, so that is the way the wiki flows. How poetic. --["NickSchmalenberger"]<br> - * I don't like OSX, and I was the first person to support it. I don't like Baseball, but I was the last editor of the page. Liking something isn't the only reason to support and work on something. I think you're seeing conspiracies where there are none. --["JabberWokky"]<br> - * I don't think there is a conspiracy either, but that this is just the way the wiki ends up. I pretty much agree with your statements below. At the same time, it is useful to note what people's biases are and when they coincide. --["NickSchmalenberger"]<br> - * Drop a clause and change two words (well, replace a phrase with a word and a word for another) and I agree with your statement: "The real reason this page exists is because the people in this wiki like Macs. That is the way the interest goes, so that is the way the wiki flows. How poetic". --["JabberWokky"]<br> - * Linux is also steeply discounted for students, faculty, staff, and even unaffiliated train-hoppers (it's free!). If Apple gets a page, I say Linux should get its own page too (in addition to the ["LUGOD"] page, that is).<br> - * So create one. There are no chains on your wrists preventing you from creating one.
