Al Fasolt, writing for the Syracuse (New York) Post-Standard, tells why he switched from Windows to Mac OS X:
“Ever since I revealed that I’m a ‘switcher’ – someone so fed up with Windows that I switched to an Apple Macintosh – I’ve had to create a separate folder in my e-mail program to hold all the comments I’ve been getting from readers and friends.
Most of them have congratulated me, but many others said they were afraid I’ve abandoned them. I’d never do that. I’m just telling it like it is.
I’m telling you you’re not stuck with Microsoft Windows. There’s a new kind of computer out there. It’s easy to use and extremely powerful. It’s ideal for the normal tasks you and I do with PCs: Web browsing, e-mail, image viewing, music listening and word processing. It’s superb at such things as video editing and DVD creation, too.
This extraordinary new computer represents the rebirth of Apple’s Macintosh, running a Unix operating system called OS X. It scoffs at Windows computer viruses and worms. When you switch to an Apple Macintosh, you no longer care whether your sister-in-law sends computer viruses to you every day. Your Windows virus worries are over.”
