It seems to me, that as we go on in time, the big player OSes are simply forgetting that not everyone is a mindbogglingly unintelligent "yay facebook and itunes machine" type. Some people want to use their computers to get flax done, and win8, and recent (3 years) osX have seemingly forgotten that. Neither really lends itself on workflow. OsX app switching is certainly cleaner than metro, but the part where theres no good hardware or software options on that overpriced flax kinda negates that mac doesn't really lend itself to anything professional anymore. I get the feeling 8 will go the way of vista, certainly in the business world. No IT crew in the world is gonna install this flax if they can help it.
I concur. I really went out on a Mac, and I won't be entirely surprised if it dies just out of the warranty period. I've tried some high end Windows laptops, but really I can't type as fast on those as I can on the keyboard, and plus the two finder scroll never lets me down.
There's the crap about them too. like the Dang price tag, and the fact that the specs aren't THAT wonderful.
And I've noticed that too- OSX Lion (as I've said before) dropped the ability for the average user to access system files. Plus I find that I can switch through windows faster on snow leopard than in lion- lion's got this new "bird's-eye-view" crap that I don't like. And that ipad like interface for apps? Oh god help us all.
I'm still in High school but I'm going to be going to University for comp sci. I suppose there I'll learn, either through the course or on my own, I'll learn as much C++ as possible.
