Top Ten Reasons I’m Glad I’m a Mac Switcher

Mike Wendland (of Detroit Free Press fame) has listed his “Top Ten Reasons I’m Glad I’m a Mac Switcher” on his MacMike News site:

Wendland explains, “It’s been nearly four years now since I made the switch from PCs and Windows to Apples and Macs.”

Top Ten Reasons I’m Glad I’m a Mac Switcher:
1 – No spam – There is no better spam filter than Spam Sieve. It’s a Mac-only product and it catches 98 percent of my junk mail.
2 – No worms or viruses – None. Zip. Zero. Not a single one in four years now.
3 – No adware/spyware – Same thing. These are non-issues on my Macs.
4 – No crashes – It just doesn’t happen with OS X. I had one crash in December 2002, but I was running OS 9 at the time and it was a very old program (from 1994-ish) and I was curious to see if it worked. It didn’t.
5 – Total integration – Apple’s iSync application keeps my calendar, address book, Web bookmarks and to-do list automatically and flawlessly synchronized on my desktop and laptops. And it backs it all up on my .Mac account, meaning I can access it from any computer with a Net connection.
6 – iTunes and the iPod – Need I say more? Granted, these also work with Windows. But on Macs, they work the best.
7 – Total freedom – Airport Express lets me set up a wi-fi network anywhere I want in seconds and it extends my wireless network at home as I need it.
8 – Mac software – I mentioned SpamSieve and iTunes. But then there’s other special Mac apps like the RSS-reader NetNewsWire, GarageBand, Safari and Final Cut Pro. I can not imagine computing without these apps.
9 – Compatibility – I realize this is a PC world. So I use Microsoft’s Office for the Mac. Truthfully, it’s been my experience that it works better than Office for Windows.
10 – Community – When I was all PC, I used to laugh at the Mac zealots. Now that I am one, I understand why they love their computers. I never heard a Windows user say that.

“For me, Macs have made the last four years an adventure just waiting to be clicked,” Wendland explains.

  1. Why the hell won’t an article like THIS one get picked up and spread nigh and yonder in the mainstream shitty press? Imagine how much head-scratching and “Wow, I didn’t know that!”-type reactions this’d cause if it were reprinted in USAToday?

    F-ckin’ Mac-hating imbeciles everywhere need their eyes opened.

  2. Have you ever seen a child, on his way to school, have a car drive past and splash him, and then he just stands there and thinks if he should just go to school or go home and change and be late . . . And then I drove past and splashed him again!

  3. I don’t believe a thing you man-goo-loving Mac cultist fags say.

    My Windows PC does everything your Mac can do. It’s just a tool.

    You gay homos love man pudding so much that you make up fake lists proclaiming your love for your toy computers.

    Get a real PC, you tree hugging sausage swallowers!

    I say BULLSHIT to reasons 1-10 above because I’m not a Mac-loving fanatical fag loaded to the gills with baby batter.

    You Mac gays keep on lying and we’ll keep using our real PCs and ignoring you fags.
