Good parody of the Think Different ads.

Great video that I've seen before. There are some valid points, but none of them have ever happened to me when using a Mac, so I'm ok ^^ .

old, but funny. i like it because it works so amazingly well... just like the mac "switch" ads, everything in there is pretty much true- but they're all problems that are like 10 years old or extremely rare, that nobody ever sees any more.

It refers to MacOSX (except for one part, which is OS9), OSX was introduced in 2000, and it refers in particular to 10.1 and 10.2 (last released in 2002/2003.)

i myself have experienced a few of these problems myself, so it is an occurance worthy of being considered 'sporadic' if not 'common'.

Heh, being a Mac sysadmin, i can kinda appreciate that clip. Although, since 10.3 rolled out, we've had almost no crashing issues.

Heh, reminds me of a coworker of mine. His Windows XP desktop is so old and fragile that he's refused to reboot it for the last few months. He had an uptime of about 131 days before he finally had to move offices.

I love the ad!

considering how many different hardware/software setups M$ and all the hardware makers have to deal with it wouldn't be surprising that windows has that many problems. Yeah i concede that windows has comparatively more dodgy code than MacOSx but then think of how many software tweaks people do to their win systems (ever used tweakui, any stardock programs, theme hacks etc.)? Think of all those people who overclock their computers, run them past their intended specs?

It's all relative

Agreed. PCs will work just fine if you treat them right. Although, one of the strengths I've seen in Macs since OS X is that it limits the amount of dumb things a user can do. It keeps good balance of the user's needs and system stability. Windows often chooses "spiffy functionality" even if it might lead to problems.

I want to ask, so you just haven't used windows in 5 months? :)
Just joking with you. Consider youself lucky, the peecee I have to use at work (using WinXP Pro) either freezes up or starts giving so many lib error messages, you need to reboot at least 4 times a week. The Mac I use at home has only froze up twice in the last 9 months, both times due to a defective external HD (since replaced)

your milage may vary ;)

If you set any computing platform up just right and don't download every spam happy, spyware infested, virus injected, memory consuming, poorly programmed, crappy piece of software and install/run them all, you will _rarely_ have issues.

My Windows XP box only crashed when a game freaks out. Usually cause it doesn't like ATI's poor excuse for drivers. When they do make them right, the machine runs smooth. In fact, I have not had a crash on the PC in months. The Macs, however, they only restart when an update is installed. The G4 _never_ crashes. The G5 hasn't yet.

Yeah, that's been floating around the internet for a while. Still good stuff, though.

The funny thing about the whole Mac/Windows stability thing is that, for me, the PCs I use are more stable than the Macs. Macs just hate me. They freeze up, do weird things, and just generally don't work well. On the other hand, I can't even remember the last time I saw the blue screen of death. Well, I can, but that was a hardware problem, not a Windows problem.
