Chicago Sun-Times: Apple’s Mac OS X ‘the easiest, most reliable, and overall best operating system’

“I state confidently that the Mac operating system is the easiest, the most reliable and overall the best OS on the planet,” Andy Ihnatko writes for The Chicago Sun-Times.

“When I get flaming e-mails stating otherwise, I shake my head sympathetically and note that this is what years of using Windows does to your soul. Unless the correspondent is a Linux user, in which case I grumblingly concede the reliability point but stand firm on everything else,” Ihnatko writes. “This latest edition is a tremendous leap forward. It’s The Who playing live at Leeds, where Windows is your kid’s middle-school class playing ‘Jingle Bells’ on the recorder.”

  1. Hey G… really smooth hijack attempt. There may be some who want to hear your pathetic political whinings, but I’ll bet MOST do not. Why not take your ten-year old brain and tiny squirtgun elsewhere, Yahooligans maybe, where you can start all the fights you want.

    You’re right on. A while back I had a discussion with a friend who supported about 100 Windows users (hes a Mac user). He said that they were so conditioned to crashes, freezes, virus and rebooting that they thought it was normal operating procedure. They had become so calloused to these problems that there was just no way to describe the Mac user experience.

    To them, putting up with Windows was ‘normal’ for using a computer.

  3. Hello, my name is G Spank.

    I’m a close-minded, partisan liberal moron! I have a poster of Al Franken on my wall! (At his current age, not from his much-cooler Saturday Night Live days.)

    And here’s the thing: I have no life! That’s why I try and turn every conversation toward the subject of my perception of George Bush’s idiocy. Hey, no matter that some of our countries greatest leaders have been poor public speakers, or that many of the policies they implemented during their presidency’s were not popular at the time. Naaaaaaaah. Screw that. I’m all for the partisan-style bashing!

    Oops, mom’s home. Gotta go!

  4. I remember when Andy used to write for “Mac User” magazine. Affy…that was a good one, best laugh I’ve had in a while. Jimbo, point well taken!
    I do wish that Apple would advertise Mac OS and their computers like Dell and Gateway advertise (on TV) though.
    We’d see a really big jump in market share. Maybe someday….

  5. No appropriate analogies allowed? What happened to free speech? Oh, that’s right, most Bush supporters think free speech is only appropriate if it fits their idealogy.

    I made an anology. A very fitting one. It’s not my fault if you can’t make the connection.

  6. “MS had a grip of fear on the masses much like the Bill Clinton had a grip on his schvontz.”

    That’s a good one. I guess the difference is that I’m not freaking out about it, calling you names, and spouting profanities like a big baby.

  7. Randolph Kirkpatrick. Yes, infinately….hahahahahahaha

    And I thought all along that separately was the most misspelled word on these sites, it’s often incorrectly spelled seperately. Ah well, schools of today are too PC, when they should be Mac’d.
