    What, you can’t appreciate the humour in this since you’re fond of Macs?

  7. This is pretty funny. I always thought macs were easier and more user friendly. Gotta say, this makes me think about that twice now..

  11. The funny part is that the problems he describes as having are things which Apple fixed over 10 years ago, but if you point this fact out to people they think you’re just a fanboy.

    Yet if you point out all the things which still plague Windows to this day, and how confusing it is that people still put up with issues Microsoft clearly can’t do anything about, despite trying time and time again, people still think you’re just a Mac fanboy.

    The FACTS are: he drop kicks an iMac model which was defunct at least 6 years ago.

    At the end of the clip he admits he edited the whole thing together on a Mac. Why? Because industry standard video editing applications don’t work on Windows and probably never will. Funny that considering Macs are always being accused of not having software.

  15. Whenever my husband starts bragging about how his Mac is better than my PC, I whip out this video (I’ve got it bookmarked). It always makes me laugh.

  18. Just to stir up the debate a bit more, I think I’ll add another comment:

    I actually find the video describes perfectly the majority of my experience with Windows :P

  19. Never had my mac shut down out of the blue.
    Never had it lock up.
    I agree with the previous poster — sounds more like windows.

  20. Heh, well I have seen those problems on Macs before. On OS 9. Thats not to say I havent had the occassional issue with Os X, most of that turns out to be hardware failure though. I also have seen these problems windows but.. mostly win9x. XP was vastly improved, and it seems vista will be even more so.
    Still, the movie was amusing.

  22. I always thought macs were easier and more user friendly. Gotta say, this makes me think about that twice now..

    The first part of your statement is dead on, I have to use a Dell @ work and to me, when I sit down in front of Windows it FEELS like work, because it is… if I do the same work on my Mac, I get a lot more pleasure out of the experience. Personal preference.

    Heh, well I have seen those problems on Macs before. On OS 9.

    I’ve never, ever had my Mac “just shut off”… ever. In OS 9, the ONLY time it locked up on me was if I had to force quit something, which wasn’t very often. I’ve never understood how people can have so many problems with computers… they just seem to work for me.

  23. Wasn’t that Apple’s slogan for a while: “It just works”.
