Mac is better, but i use windows because there are more applications and games for windows.

And macs cost f***ing much!. But i bought myself the cheapest macbook.

pointless question.

Both have good and bad points that outweigh each other, and dont have the same conflict against each other as they once did. The poll is meaningless. However, i'd answer if the poll options were re-worded. my answer is....

I prefer macs as they look sexier, generally faster and more stable. But, these days they're generally pc's under the hood, and i use Windows XP on them with PC software anyway. so what am i using, mac or pc? who cares?
As far as what's best for creating the best work? thats down to you as Seth says. Neither a mac or pc is better than the next, artistically speaking.

So what's the point of the thread you're after?

This is like asking a painter if he uses oil, acrylic, or watercolor. Maybe horsehair or synthetic bristles. What you use is not important, the end result is all that really matters.

Bottom line: What you use is not as important as HOW you use it.

No it isn't. Those are all relevant questions if you're interested in the process that painter uses to create his work. (Well,maybe not horsehair vs synthetic)

Satanists use Mac. It's why Apple uses, well the Apple as symbol - goes way back to the Garden of Eden. Why do you think there is a bite in the apple? Apple's first computer sold for $666.66!

It's all there, right in front of everyone's eyes! Be vigilant and ready for the time is coming when all shall be called upon to face the evil that at this very moment is at work and moving to destroy every last one of us!
