“Why Does Windows Still Suck?”

Posted Friday, February 4th, 2005 at 07:55 PM

I know I’ve been touting the awesomeness of the Mac recently, and you’re probably sick of it, so I’ll let SF Chronicle columnist, Mark Morford do the talking:

Why Does Windows Still Suck? Why do PC users put up with so many viruses and worms? Why isn’t everyone on a Mac?

I like this guy’s style of writing. He brings out some great points. In regard to all the PC viruses, worms, trojans, security holes, etc, he writes:

“…And with very few exceptions, every Mac owner everywhere on the planet simply looks at all this viral chaos and spyware noise and Microsoft apologia and shrugs. And smiles. ”

I use both Mac and Windows machines in the office, and I really have to agree with this guy about the Mac’s elegant, intuitive GUI deisgn on the front-end as well. Apple’s OS X is just a breath of fresh air after using Windows ever since I was a nerdy 11-year old when we started using Windows.

I know Lem loves OS X. Has anyone else used a Mac? What were your impressions on them?
