I think different: Volume III

Below is the final volume of My Mac Manifesto. If, for whatever reason, you cannot see Volume I or Volume II immediately below this post, click here for the permalink to Volume I or click here for the permalink to Volume II. Now the finale.

Did I mention there is not a single computer virus that attacks the Mac platform? No, seriously; there are NO virii that can infect a Mac! There are millions, yes MILLIONS, of nasty little boogers out there than can flat out kill a Windows machine.

Now I know that there will be times I must have some software that will only run on Windows. As I mentioned before, it’s a good thing that my MacBook Pro can run Windows, thanks to FREE software from Apple called Boot Camp. I power up my Mac, I hold the option (alt) key, and a dandy little screen pops up asking if I want OS X or Windows XP. Now isn’t that convenient?

I have gone on for pages now ranting about Mac. I have yet to tell you the real reason why I finally ditched Windows for Mac. As many of you know, I am a computer technician, which means, of course, that I work on Windows-based PC’s for a living. I love Windows. Microsoft Windows is my livelihood! The fact that Windows is often prone to crash, lock-up, and flat out be stupid, keeps me employed. It’s a good thing I’m not a Mac technician. I’d be unemployed. 🙂

When I come home after a long day at work, and I want to check my e-mail, look at Ebay, or check out Digg, I want to sit down at a computer that I can trust. Since I have been using Mac, I have never had a blue screen of death, or any other screen of death for that matter. My Mac has never crashed. My Mac has never locked up. So why do I used a Mac? It just works. What more reason do I need?

I am a Mac user. I think different.
