About a mac
Recently I got this thing in mind to get a mac. I think this came from my experimenting with Linux and open source in the attempt to find something other than windows. Not because I dislike windows but because I wanted to change to something new; besides windows is really open to viruses and other types of attack and my experience recently with one these viruses (which was uncommon and non destructive but really made windows unusable) wasn’t a happy one. So I finally decided I wanted to try Mac OS and got a mac mini. Well, I dare to say I got used to interface in no time and really find it a great computer so much that I now use this as my main pc and keep the windows one for other things such as using is as media center (which unfortunately is still a field the mac has to develop better) and a few games. The only thing I miss from the windows pc is a slightly better graphics card: good news is I was lucky enough to get 64mb of video ram on the mac mini vs the 32 specified on the store pages but I still find this liming in contrast to the 256 I have on the windows pc. But as I said for most games I still use windows though I’ve finally found a very good alternative OS that has a large base of games developed for it in contrast to linux that I dare say has none… and I even tried to run windows games on linux with special software with no luck.
So in the end get a mac, it is a wonderful platform!
