    wooo

    Come on guys lets calm down a bit. At the end of the day there is no real Mac-Windows stereotypes because we all want to be gettingthe best from our systems. I would love to openly invite every dissatisfied Windows User to the Mac world. **** if there is something you would like to change and you are willing to have a slight learning curve then OSX on a mac is the best. My one sadness in life is that Apple do not promote OSX enough, if the lay man knew the massive advatanges over windows then perhaps more Mac units would be shifted. I am not a Mac elitist and feel tha i would like everyone to participate in the mac party!

    I think it's hilarious that some of you went crazy over my comment about imitation being flattery when it was a pro-Apple statement. If Microsoft feels the need to mimic OS X because it is a better operating system then Apple should walk around with it's chest poked out. Do some of you just sit their waiting until I post a comment so you can automatically attack it?

    There was some ambiguity about what you were trying to say.

    Sounds like you need to grow up.The real world (nor forums) cater to just what you like.

    You've been eating too much rainbow stew with a silver spoon. :dummy:

    Excuse me? The name of the Forums are "Mac-Forums" so therefore it is, by design, intended to be a place to discuss "Mac related issues". If this were a general computer forum, I might agree, but this IS a Mac based forum Which part of that don't you seem to get?

    As for growing up, perhaps you should take some of your own advise. Since your profile doesn't show that you own any Macs, one can guess that you are here simply to stir up trouble and start a flame war.

    baggss, I fully understand where you are coming from not thinking that Windows should be talked about on a mac forum. But on the other side of the argument, running XP on "Macs" is a viable and soon to be supported function from Apple. This leads me to think that because it has EVERYTHING to do with Macs, there should be an area of the forum for topics such as these to be discussed. Until that is set up, we are going to continue to see people going back and forth on the issue, and alot of diehard Apple users are going to continue to be upset about Windows discussion.

    Techster82, Agreed.

    Also, I have nothing against a little talk about Windows as long as it does not turn into a war. Lately that has happened a lot.

    I agree. If the forum staff decide to set a Windows on mac forum, I would be all for it. I can understand that there are those, yourself included, dislike it when folks mindlessly bash Windows, just like there are folks ,like me, who dislike a lot of general Windows discussion on a Mac forum. I think there is a compromise to made and I think you and I both agree on what it is.

    Trust me, while this may have been flaming for this forum, there are places I frequent where this would be considered a "Civilized" discussion.

    I know what you mean. I am on other forums where it gets a bit nasty. Ususlly though people like MacAnal would be banned and IP Blocked where I hang out as they are there just to cause a war. On Anandtech Forums we had a dood who called himself GUTB for Guy Under the Bridge. he was banned and IP Blocked, so he came back and used AOL. AOL would not deal with him so a ban was placed on ALL AOL IP address's. It's still in effect.

    Like I've said before, it's not my decision etc....
    But just in terms of my personal opinion, I tend to feel that I came here to talk about Macs (OS X) and not Windows and that if people want to talk about Windows they should do so in either a section designed for the subject, or a limited amount of threads.
    It seems to me that a certain number of people, generally new users with 10 posts or less are running around just deliberately trying to cause problems and in my view, that is neither welcome nor very productive. That is of course, just my view.

    For those who support a "Windows on Mac forum" creation here, please chime in in THIS thread.

    it should almost be part of the Switcher area, since that is dedicated to those who are just coming from Windows and are learning OSX. :dummy:

    i'm on a number of forums and you will always find those who just like to kick over the anthill to provoke a response. :p

    Flaming and personal bickering are not permitted. Consider this a warning to everyone involved.

    We are not like other forums, we don't allow what might be allowed elsewhere and it's part of the reason we have such a loyal base of followers. They enjoy not having to deal with the garbage that goes on elsewhere.

    We're here to help each other, have good, thought provoking discussions and have a good time.
