    Stupid Comments/ Questions from Windows users
    It's time for a thread like this.

    When the new eMacs came in at our school, I had a little chat with my friend

    Friend: Wow, those new eMacs sure do look neat!
    Me: Yeah, they're pretty cool.
    Friend: I see they also run that new cool OS, Windows..umm...Vista?
    Me: No, they run Mac OS X.
    Friend: They can't, it makes them crash.
    Me: No, in fact they crash less and don't get viruses.
    Friend: ...

    It bugs me at how ignorant some people are. They are just in that Windows bubble, free from all other OSes.

    Thought I'd revive this thread, it has good potential, and it was a 10> pager at MR.

    One of my friends is a Mac fan, one of mine owns an iMac and loves it, but the rest probably think Mac means iPod.

    Specs:
    Mac Mini 1.83, iBook G3 800, iMac G3 233, Mac Classic, Apple IIc. And too many PC's to count.
    Ah, well here's one or two for ya.

    I was using my old Bondi iMac G3, with a friend over. She looked over at it and asked what version of Windows it ran. I said "it doesn't run Windows it runs Mac OS 8."
    She replied with "Wait, that's a mac?" "yep."
    She stares at it for a few more seconds.
    "I didn't know Macs had color screens."

    Another one.

    We had just visited the Apple store, and while I had been contemplating weather to get an iMac or a Mini (ended up getting a Mini for christmas later) My sister had been playing with an iMac. As we were leaveing the mall, I asked "So, what do you think of those Macs?"
    "They're pretty good." *pause* "I didn't know Macs ran iTunes." :eek:

    i went to futureshop and the guy there didnt know ipod videos had harddrives in them, and he also said that mac osx was a very unstable operationg system and thats why they ran vista on all of the macs in their store. Then i went over to an imac opened up the start menu and it went to a blue screen of death and then i started laughing really hard.

    I asked a guy at BestBuy about a Mac before I bought mine and he said he didn't know much about them but that the downside was that "there's basically no software whatsoever for Macs."

    At school, around other PC users I always get the, "Ooo, look at me. I'm trendy and buy trendy things." Or, "I'm don't know how to use a computer, so I bought a MAC."

    I usually don't respond, just indulge them with a smile. After a while, I was showing them how easy it was to use, and all the neat stuff it can do. I kept getting, "What about virus protection/spyware?" I politely said, "MAC has not yet had an issue with viruses or spyware bots, so I don't have to worry about them for now."

    Then I had to help one of them connect their Windows laptop to our school's wireless. My MBP auto-detected the connection (I just had to create the defaults for future connections). Their laptop couldn't see any of the school's connections. We went through about 5 or 6 different screens adjusting configuration settings and security just to get the laptop to recognize the signal, let alone connect to it!

    Yeah, you're lucky if you have a certain card like Intel wireless, because you have a better interface than the Windows XP/Vista wireless program.
