Windows Vista vs. Mac OSX
January 9, 2007
I’ve been a Windows user for many years (13) and just recently (and for the first time,) I decided to buy a Mac – I wanted to try something new.
BUT VISTA IS COMING OUT … THAT’S NEW!
I saw Vista (and Bill Gates’ keynote at CES,) and yes, it does have some nice looking baubles. But to me, it still looks like Windows.
One thing about Vista that has not been mentioned in any speech I have seen: stability and quiting an application.
Consider this common scenario when wanting to shut down a misbehaving application:
end process – > ‘are your sure you want to do this?’
end process – > ‘are your really sure you want to do this? it could make your system unstable …’
end process – > ‘we were unable to stop the process..’
MAC OS X:
For me, that is the one ‘killer feature’ in an OS – no complaining and delays when shutting down an application.
… Since moving to Mac OS X, I’ve noticed my stress levels have dropped about 36.3%.
