Which is better? Apple or Microsoft?
Aren't those synonymous nowadays?Apple make better phones and music playing devices
That still depends though, they're both way too large to just compare and say either one is 'better.'Im asking in general, which company is better.
Lol what year is it? 2003? Nobody gets viruses anymore unless you're still on something below vista, in which case you deserve to get themApple... Microsoft is just hard to use... And prone to viruses...
Linux is great but I wouldn't call it better than windows, definitely not for your average Joe.Also Apple has viruses, far less of them but still have them.
And Microsoft's OS is really easy compared to Linux OS, but Linux is better than Windows.. and Windows is better than IOS
No, not strange, as those are services with which Apple doesn't compete. They are also the industry standard, so Apple would be stupid to not incorporate and support them.Personally I like Microsoft. Apple uses Microsoft word, excel, and powerpoint. Kind of strange, right?
...like OSX? This is an Apple/Microsoft thread.Windows main downfall is that it ain't open source...
More features.. which are obscure as fúck. Linux is great for developers, but don't try to pretend it's better for the average consumer as we both know that's not true (yet, perhaps)Granted however once you understand Linux it does have more features and also relies more heavily on the command line which I like.
Plenty of programmers use windows too.It is, that's why "normal" people usually use Windows, and people like programmers for example use Linux
This goes above the heads of many already. Burning isos? Booting into the BIOS? Hell no.I would argue that some linux distributions are suitable (and better then windows) for the 'Average Joe'. Ubuntu for example there is a download page in plain English http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop. And two install guides (for installs from windows) http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-windows and http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows. These guides are NOT difficult to follow and then once you install Ubuntu if you are stuck there is http://askubuntu.com/ a entire community you can ask... And also lets be honest there isn't really much to get stuck on considering the package manager is GUI and for the most part you can avoid the command line.
