            I think for anyone seeking portability, battery life is an important consideration and MacBooks pretty much nail that

                I have a apple MacBook Pro, the last version before they went all crappy keyboard. I needed a replacement for a netbook, which I had maxed out the ram, even managed to shoe horn windows 10 onto before , well just running to hot and slow. So I started looking into a replacement, eventually settled on the MacBook Pro because it had everything I wanted. I really like it because it works well and the sync with my IPod and now iPhone , especially with iTunes seedless and fast, compare that with the windows version of iTunes the sync was drawn out and very slow

                  1. Doesn’t ask me to update every 2 weeks (in the middle of my work)
                  2. Doesn’t run the risk totally screwing the computer every time you let such an update run

                      Apple Mac OS is great indeed. exe error, dll error, directx error. Not on Mac OS. BSOD, virus. Not on Mac OS. Update error. Not on Mac OS. Now pricing. The reason they cost more is because Apple includes the price of Mac OS or iOS with the device. They make the software and the hardware, not just one side. So they have to charge both on total price. I've done comparisons many times and every single time a Mac part for part compared to PC and monitor is only $200 more. They add the $200 for the Mac OS.

                          The "it just works" point is a huge point. I built my own gaming PC and I swear there's some obscure problem every other day, I have no idea how the average person uses windows

                            The virus named Windows got nothing on OSX it’s a shame that i’m poor and addicted to gaming. You forgot that mac’s keep their value so they are worth something after five years etc.

                                  So, if it's is better, why does Windows dominate in the marketplace?

                                  The market tends to make efficient decisions, selecting the "winner".

                                  Why does Windows dominate in the marketplace? Could it be similar to the reasons of why VHS dominated Betamax?

                                    @EHP idk what lexus charges over toyota. But I am just saying that it's cheaper that's why its has got a much bigger marketplace, if suddenly apple products started costing less like 60 percent of the price they are at now they will sell like carzy.

                                    @S.R. Aman Or more affordable. Apple is able to command a significant premium in excess of the better features that it has over Microsoft, not unlike the premium Lexus charges for its better features over a comparable Toyota.

                                            Virtual Desktops, yea thanks Windows 10 clearly doesn't have them. Previous versions? Yea it clearly lacks that as well. Props for the updates tho, nice. About the connectivity tho, all who had Windows phones can confirm mostly the same with Windows but GJ anyway. But the spying, how can you be sure it doesn't? (If it really doesn't tho most people use Google anyway so not a valid point anyway)

                                                                            Just to mention one scenario:
                                                                            We wanted to support iOS 11 for our latest app versions. But in order to build apps for iOS 11, we needed to update xCode to a newer version. And for some crazy reason, in order to update xCode, we needed to update macOS! That is insane. We tried, and naturally a lot of software we use, like the Unity version we were working on, was not compatible with the newer macOS version... And upgrading Unity version was simply waaay to big of an investment for us to do at the time.
                                                                            In the end, we found a hackish way to copy some files and edit others from the new xCode version to the old one, in order to avoid having to update macOS.
                                                                            In my mind, something like this is completely unforgivable by a software vendor. You can not just break backward compatibility like this, it is simply not acceptable. And this is just one of many serious issues we have had with xCode. Don't even get me started on the plist files that has all kinds of madness to them if you need to automatically alter them using your own scripts outside of xCode...

                                                                            • Comrade Chepurny

As for the "Linux is free", I also like the experience of Linux better - I was just joking about the fact that some people accept to pay stupidly high amounts of money for ok hardware and software. As for me, most of the points mentionned in the video just stands for Linux too.

If I understand the Wikipedia articles that I just read, Unix has various license options. To have access to the Unix Trademark companies pay huge fees to "The Open Group" who currently owns the Trademark. Meanwhile the software is controlled by Novell. Free versions of Unix are referred to as "Unix-Like". Apple pays the fees to The Open Group for their license to use the Unix Trademark.

                                                                                          I've tried various Unix distros (Free BSD, Open BSD, OSX, etc.) but none of them held my interest. I am a Linux user and even run Linux on Mac hardware. I simply enjoy the experience of Linux better. The fact that Linux is as Free as Freedom is just a bonus.
