So-called expert switches to Mac

By Julio Franco

  1. I have a decent respect for those who like Macs better than Windows-based PCs. I also have more than a decent respect for Apple's efforts on Mac OS X, which I believe is a great OS despite the lack of openness and proprietary business model.

    HOWEVER, when a so-called expert talks about SIMMs in today's PC hardware, I start to question myself, what the hell is with these people telling everybody to switch, come on!

    When people are talking about SIMMs, I picture this:

    Yea, but if you read Part 1, you would have seen the author's intent of a far
    trial of the Mac product. He had a poor experience with reboots and reported
    his findings -- a bad simm.

    As if Windows doesn't auto reboot or fail with RAM issues?

    With all the PC bias here, I would think we would just outright ban all Mac topics --
    At least it would stop the flame wars and be an honest statement of intent --
    to discuss and assiste PC users.

    I've stated previously that I operate Win/XP, Linux, and Mac OS X 10.3.9
    and find all of them have pros/cons.

    My signature below is particularly applicable to this subject ----

    I think Julio was referring to him meaning SO-DIMM not SIMM:
