Stick to the topicsMay 24, 2000 Write an essay on this topic.
Whenever there is a thread on anything regarding Apple or Macs, you always get the same responses from people. "MACS SUCK" "PCS RULE" and other such blanket statements are always posted, even if not in so few words or such strong language. My title reads, "Stick to the topics" because people turn things into Mac vs PC flamewars all the time.
I'm not going to ramble on about pros and cons and try and convince anyone either way but I will give you my view.
I was once a "hardcore Mac fanatic" as some people so eloquently put it. I've been using Macintoshes since they came out in 1984 and this year I built myself a dual-processor screamer of a PC. It dual boots Linux and Windows 2000 and it works fine. Allow me to quote a previous poster's epinion: "The Macintosh community is heavily populated by fanatics. It's almost the equivalent of a religious cult. There are some hardcore Mac zealots that would rather die than use PC." This point is no longer true to this extent. Sure there are people out there that fit the description, but the truth is the Mac is still and more than before a viable platform for computing and will only improve.
As for the topic that is supposed to be discussed in this area, I attended MacWorld SF 2000 and it was the best I've attended to date. I usually hit the East coast show (hopefully it will be back in Boston when we get our new convention center built...) but I was fortunate enough to get to go to the SF show. Big and loud as usual, I got to catch all the major players I went to see. Adobe, Macromedia, Iomega, Filemaker, and many others were all there as usual. For those that are in the market for MacOS products and services, MacWorld Expo is an invaluable resource. See you at the Javits!
