Re: Bad Apple cultists
Sorry you are having trouble with comprehension of simple sentences. I didn't state that "Apple owners are happier in their lives". I actually said "People [who] use what works for them... [are] generally happier in their lives". There is a difference, and that is why I used those words in that order.
I am a CAD user, and I use a Windows PC. It works for me. A fan of computer games might feel similar. Someone one use uses Office apps and email might not have any feelings either way.
However, if I were a musician, for example, I might find that a Mac works well for me, because it will have a FireWire chipset made by the correct OEM (either VIA or TI chips won't work with all external sound cards on a PC, can't remember which is which), the Mac itself isn't as loud as many PCs, and the CoreAudio part of OSX works- in Windows the Windows Sound Mapper keeps interfering with ASIO, which in any case is limited in terms of channels. And have you tried changing the default MIDI device in Windows 7? The applications they use will have been tested on a more limited combination of hardware components, and so bugs are more liekly to be squashed, all things being equal. Many other musicians use Macs, so any issues they encounter will probably have been encountered by others on similar hardware and software, and and a solution will probably be easier to find.
So the result is, they spend more time recording music or knob twiddling (whatever they want to do) and less time hunting down obscure computer issues. It is on this basis that I assume they are 'happier in their lives'.
