How many of you Windows users roll without an AV? A lot of my friends do without any problems. I guess it's all about being smart online.


Used to roll without an AV, and the only time I had a virus attack was that I executed the file on mistake when I ALREADY know it's a viral...:nah: Dumb sleepy me back then...but right now, it's not really without an AV, it be all heaven, Firewall is also important. My ZASS has everything so I'm just rolling with it.

You said the keyword, being smart online. ALOT of users lack that and then blame everything else when they got attacked....sigh. :badmood:

But just wondering someone said limited programs for mac..I mean for casual people my friend has a pc and all he uses is word, iTunes, limewire, firefox....all things you can get on a mac. photoshop cs3 illustrator all that stuff. Really people that need all those heavy programs for their job I can understand but for casual stuff a Mac is the best thing you can get

Haha, I NEED Photoshop CS3, Adobe After Effects, and Sony Vegas to survive so I guess PC is just for me.

Plus as I've mentioned before, Macs don't run games very well...

Bootcamp is one reason why I would get a mac, but full support with Bootcamp is still not very good isn't it? I would use Bootcamp to run windows(can they take Vista yet?), but for full-fledged current games....I dunno.

My old PC crashed one morning, so I decided to make the switch to an iMac a few months ago. No complaints so far.

I have a question for you Mac users. I installed Aperture 2 and I threw it in the trash which should uninstall it but now the Finder says I only have 111GB left instead of 120. What should I do?

PC. Though I actually gave a MAC a chance at Best Buy 1-2 weekends ago and thought it was nicely organized and neat.

But I'm used to using a PC.

Did you completely delete it? Just throwing it in the trash won't destroy the program.

Can I still completely delete it? Usually throwing it away uninstalls programs...

PC + Windows... no antivirus needed neither.

IMO, the problem is the user 99% of times, not the computer. I'm quite fed up at having to "fix" friends and family computers only to see that it was entirely their fault.

Macs are better at graphic design software, that's for sure. Windows, on the other hand, is a programmer's heaven, it has the best development tools by far.

Linux... I used to love it, but I became disilusioned at having to compile the kernel so much, and I've seen it crash far more than any other OS.
