So I'm part of an illustrator's forum and someone posted asking for advice--whether they should get a Mac or PC. Everyonce posted that this lady should get a Mac, even though she had learned on the PC. I was the only dissenting voice--I told her that if she's used to a PC, she ought to go with that (and visa versa). I'm proffecient in both, and they seem pretty much the same to me.
Boy was I flamed. I had a bunch of posters down my throat, telling me how stupid I was, how Macs are so much better, etc etc...The doosie was when one of them told me that the reason Pixar had so much better animation that Dreamworks was because Pixar uses Macs, and Dreamworks uses PCs. She really said that. I didn't have the heart ot tell her that Pixar uses linux-based software, same as Dreamworks.
So my question is this: Is anyone else sick of the Mac vs. PC debate? Am I the only one who thinks the only difference is that Macs look cooler, and PCs need a roller-ball mouse? I can do all my work (Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter) just fine on both. Why are people so fired up over something so dumb?
