Why do I feel more productive when I'm using a Mac?
What modern computer doesn't "just work?"
Windows, Linux, OS X.
They all have the same ability to "get shit done."
Why am I actually more productive when I'm using Linux?
>Why do I feel more productive when I'm using a Mac?
you don't have to baby sit it all the fucking time. no need to endlessly set up shit and compile shit and track down why some shit coded by some retard doesn't compile or install.
it's a computer who need to get shit done and don't wanna waste their life on pointless fixing.
also, pic related.
I spent $1500 on a Precision with a QuadroK1000M for CAD shit without having to be cooped up at home all day, but it absolutely sucked in performance compared to my $800 desktop.
Sold it and spent the money on a new setup at home and enjoying it far more even though I lost $200 on reselling the laptop.
I dunno, ask the CEO of Nintendo and CEO of DeNA.
some retard mac hater imitates Taylor...
my waifu still uses Macs.
>mfw I buy a 1337 Precision for $500
>implying it's not true
you're just butthurt because truth hurts. I get that.
>the best rationalization mactards have for owning macshit is posting technology illiterate celebs that own macs
>on a technology board
>MBP confirmed for being a status symbol, nothing more.
It's not even a good one because so many people have one now.
It's like people saying Beats are the "best" headphones because their favourite celebrity wears them.
Because you are a stupid millennial and all you do is post selfies on facebook and watch netflix, which macbooks excel at. Come back when you are above 18 and have to do actual work.
It's irrelevant how much money I make. The fact that you attack people who don't own one as "being a poorfag" reflects your insecurity.
It's not about the machine, it's about being able to compare yourself to others.
You aren't a programmer, you aren't a technophile....you're an insecure fashionista just trying to fit in.
Go buy a $6,000 Rolex. That will show me how superior you are.
Right. You're suffering the mistakes of a 3 decade old filesystem that corrupts your files on a daily basis, and an antique horrific mess of a userspace from the same people that created the Apple Bomb error, and bolted on top of an experimental BSD kernel, and passing it off as a real OS.
You gotta respect Apple though, they made a *NIX variant that's more bloated, more insecure, and more unstable than even Windows. That's a real achievement.
>tfw working as web dev
>everything feels so clean and productive on Mac
>take a step back and look at what I actually did
>refactor some code, nothing else
fuck that shit, at least I get shit done with windows
>all of the mad linux fags itt
why did you even enter this thread if it makes you so salty
>every single one of these people have publicly shit all over OS X, wiped it, bypass it completely, or install their own userspace to no have to see the piece of shit that is OS X
Great argument for Macs.
When I had no choice but to use my mac I was productive as fuck. I programmed more, I did more of my assignments, and I spent less time shitposting on 4chan.
I think it is the lack of video games on the OS.
Can I be honest with you guys for a second? This pervasive and irascible OS elitism would be hilarious if it weren't so pathetic.
>Mac users think that the look of the computer and GUI is the most importnant thing
>Linux users where too dumb to figure out Windows, switched to Linux and now act smug about their "freedom", despite being able to do the same things in Windows as in Linux
>90% of all Windows user are retarded shits, who can't figure out anything by themself and then blame Microsoft for their own shortcomings
I don't understand this shit at all.
Whenever you run into a problem in Windows, the first place you should look is in the Event Viewer.
All errors are located there, and once you start recognizing the codes, you can quickly pin point errors and solutions. 90% of the Windows users never reach that point.
>explain to friend bluescreen view
>explain the bsod they see has a code on it
>they still just complain their shit is broke and talk about getting a mac
because they don't have kernel panics amirite?
The thing that makes macs better than pc's is that it's just more stable. I used to get viruses all the time on my shitty windows pc, but my mac just works. never had a problem with it! That might be why you are more productive OP :)
No, you are not. There are major issues with lecture format classes with laptops, too much distraction and you lose a valuable asset by taking hand notes and recompiling them later. It forms better connections for retention.
Good example, went to a Dev meeting last week and all the SW Devs have their laptops, all the SysAds are rocking pads and pens.
You know, using a Mac isn't a matter of being 'too dumb' for Windows or Linux. It's a matter of being smart enough to want Linux over Windows, and then being smart enough to realize that time it's money, and Linux is only free if your time is worthless.
That person, who values both the functionality of a *nix and the ease of use associated with an OS that's actually designed for end users, chooses a Mac.
Idk, I still think people who buy macs are stupid (ok, let's rephrase that to 'seriously misguided') for not opting for an optimum money/performance ratio.
None of these other considerations strike me as got-wrenching as being duped into paying hundreds of dollars more just for that ugly logo.
The (often shameless) proprietary aspect of the software also kills it for me. You, the customer, are treated like a cash cow. It's a matter of principle to me, and many others too probably.
That said, you don't have to install Arch if you want to use Linux. I find Ubuntu exceedingly accessible and stable.
Ubuntu sucks. I have an extensive history with it, including one incident where I wasn't getting a GUI in a fresh install.
And what do you mean by 'performance'? Specs aren't everything. I judge the performance of a computer partly by ease of use, accessibility, efficiency of the user experience, and amount of maintenance. Macs are great at being low-maintenance and actually functioning. Ubuntu... Not necessarily, in my experience.
And, for what it's worth, I didn't pay hundreds of dollars more for an ugly logo. I paid hundreds of dollars more for a compact design, an attractive, durable chassis, a Unix-like OS with actual commercial support, and excellent warranty support.
This thread is the first time I've ever seen such a large collection of mac shills join forces. They've figured out that stragglers are ineffective, and now they've adapted to assemble like voltron.
I bought a Macbook Air for my other half, because she likes well presented stuff that she can show to her friends.
I like playing games, so put up with PC, not as stable or cute, but more fun.
You spend more time micro-managing windows and other UI elements while having more time consuming animations in between, giving the appearance of interacting more with your computer. You *feel* like you're doing more.
He also forgot Brian Kernighan.
Because it's Unix, it has an actual window management philosophy unlike Windows, and it's more fleshed out than any Linux DE that hasn't been meticulously riced for weeks on end. It's a fully featured OS with hundreds of billions of dollars backing it designed to be used effortlessly by bother powerusers and retards alike.
People can meticulously manage files and workspaces and windows to their liking or they can leave everything open all day and search for every file in the All My Files view and switch between apps effortlessly with expose and mission control. Both approaches work flawlessly and efficiently. OS X feels better because it's the only real commercial OS. Windows has for over decade stayed afloat only because of it's reputation by poor people and manchildren on /g/ alike as the "working man's" "technical" operating system.
Debate me, niggers.
Even moot, peace be upon him inshallah, uses Thinkpads. Take that fgt.
>thinking that some cheapass normalfag laptop shows your status
Oh, fuck you. Newest thinkpads cost more than your apple shit so STFU
I love thinkshill shitposting, because using that same logic Thinkpads are total garbage when companies like Getac exist
