RE: So you thing Mac was mentioned?
OK, so you replied to a message that reads "We all look forward to updates to become bigger, faster, stronger! MS may be late for their release schedules, but they have come out with better products. Should the 3rd party venders want to drag their feet on making updates, I have no problem with moving to another 3rd party vender. It is about Moore's Law. I just cannot wait to see the next release from MS, Intel or AMD!" by bitching about why not to switch to "MAC" . Correct me if I'm wrong, but the message had nothing to do with switching to Apple computers. Me thinks you protest too much.
And the rest of your comments are rubbish anyway. You're parroting what you've heard for years. Repeating something doesn't make it any more true.
1) If you do a lot of DTP under Windows, then you should realize that your print service provider hates your files, and if they're smart, charge you more for handling them.
2) The Mac "population" has been far greater than 2.8% for quite some time.
3) WTF are you talking about Adobe not releasing upgrades for the Mac? I am a partner in the Adobe Solutions Network, and that statement 100% not true. Now, if you're using creative fact deployment, Adobe hasn't released Intel-Mac specific versions of their products... YET. But that doesn't mean they don't intend to, and it's not the same as what you are suggesting. When CS3 is released, it will be a Universal release. (And since you are living in 1997, and don't know what that means, Universal means it will be released for PPC Macs, Intel Macs and will ship concurrently with the Windows release.
4) Mac + Intel does not = Windows. Yes I know that's not what you said, but that is what you were implying. Intel hardware in Macs gives the ADDED OPTION of running Windows. Does Dell give you the option of running Mac OS X? No.
5) Proprietary? You just contradicted all the whoopla that with Intel in Apple computers, that there is nothing different about Apple computers from run-of-the-mill PC hardware. The only thing that is proprietary about Apple's computers is the operating system.
And lastly, 6) if Macs are underpowered, then most Windows computers are also underpowered, because they all run on the same technology base now.
Instead of bitching about what you obviously know NOTHING about, why don't you pick up a respectable computer trade magazine, and learn something about the topic. Hell, at least reply in context to what you are replying to. You're embarrassing yourself.
