Yes & No. I have owned PC's for over 20 years and dont play games with them, and have had only one virus in that time, and that was because of a stupid mistake on my part. There are lots of viruses out there, but some simple precautions, and virus scanning software to catch websites and email borne viruses and you are safe.smartalec said:PC's are for people wanting to play games all there life, an have Virus's, Malware, an Spyware
Mac's an Linux Versions have set the Standards way too High for Winblows to ever match.
one of the beauties of OSX is that it wont slow down over time like windows does. no defrag and registry bloat.I have just bought my first mac (OK I won one a few years ago but hated it - the new Macbook Air is just sweet as!), and plan on using it as a tool, not as a toy, and the added battery life is a very big bonus on my old 2hrs worth on the Toshiba i5, but the Air is not that much slower, if at all.
One of the things that apple do best is to drop support for older technologies frequently, it sure makes for a more stable OS. Its about time they dropped Rosetta.lithgowlights said:I think Windows 7 is much better than previous versions (ME and Vista were the worst), and My main PC runs 24/7, gets rebooted for program or windows updates (or power outages while the UPS has been uvavailable) and thats about it. It is still as fast as the day it was built, but I am careful of what gets installed on it too.
So far I am very impressed with the Air and OSX Lion, and everything people are currently whinging about with this update is not a big deal for me as I have no pre-conceived ideas about what is or is not the best way to scroll or change apps etc.
We've finished the upgrade from Snow leopard to Lion across the fleet now, and well, it was painless.. Done the server as well, and nothing broke..lithgowlights said:So far I am very impressed with the Air and OSX Lion, and everything people are currently whinging about with this update is not a big deal for me as I have no pre-conceived ideas about what is or is not the best way to scroll or change apps etc.
