Apple’s Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard shames Microsoft’s Windows Vista

“I can tell you that – with my limited exposure to the latest Leopard beta – OS X 10.5 is a far more user friendly, home network happy, 64-bit operating system for consumers than Windows Vista (even with SP1) could ever hope to be. This isn’t a classic ‘Apple vs Microsoft’ argument so much as it’s a ‘Windows vs Users’ one,” Chris Pirillo writes.

“To switch or not to switch… is becoming less of a question. Yesterday’s arguments simply DO NOT APPLY,” Pirillo writes.

  1. One large difference between Apple and Microsoft is that if Apple delayed Leopard now, people wouldn’t doubt that it was so they could make it even better, with Microsoft their delays are because they struggle to just get any old thing out the door.

  2. Whats windows?

    I’ve been using PCs and Windows for over 15 years, and I switched to OS X this summer. I’ve come to the same point you mentionned: I want a computer that works and don’t want to bother anymore with the technical stuff.
    Obviously, it depends on your needs, but I think that unless you play games, you can do anything on OS X you could do on Windows, in an easier way.
    My PC is now an expensive video game platform, and I basically don’t use it anymore.
    On the other hand, I work full-time on my mac and I’m a lot more productive.

  3. Vista has nothing to be ashamed of. Microsoft poured 5 years of blood, sweat and tears into their shining release and critics and users are rightfully ecstatic. I’m rockin’ Vista on my Dell right now.

    It is Apple who should be ashamed of their blatant copy of Microsoft’s marvelous innovations. Apple, you make yourself look bad, and the world is beginning to notice. Buh-bye, Apple.

    Your potential. Our passion.™
