Count me among the switchers in 2005.
This brought a smile to my face a couple of days ago. Always good news to hear people are switching over. Hopefully the x86 switch and more compatibility with PCs will draw more converts.
Without me the list would be at 999,999
i made the actual switch in 2003...
i been pimpin on these here since the performa 600 series days in like '94. However, i have managed to convert probably 4-5 of my friends this year.
i converted this one girl in my bio class after she saw my ibook
I bet I'm counted in that even though I didn't really swith per se. I still use my pc alot but I use my powerbook also.
I'm one of them too!
Count me in
I still use my PC a lot too. There are certain tasks its better suited for - downloading files (it's always on and has a wired connection), storing files (about 5x more HDD space than my PB), gaming (duh), etc. but I consider my Powerbook my primary computer.
i made the switch this year.
i switched in 03
working at the apple store I switching tons of people
"wait wait wait, you mean they dont get viruses?"
the coolest thing about working in the store was being like "so, have you ever made a DVD slideshow?" (or any of the 11vny billion other cool things macs can do right out of the box)
"no no, that's way too complicated etc etc"
you walk them thru it and 30 seconds later they are burning a DVD w/ photos and music...insta switcher
They should hire me at the Apple store...(If they had one here.) I made several people to switch to Apple...
now im afraid if everyone switches over people will start writing viruses and spyyware for macs
Don't worry... There are more ignorant haters out there and they will never switch because they think mac users are gay..
People say that nobody writes a virus for the Mac because there isn't that many that it would be worth it.
But wouldn't being the first person to write a virus for the OS that totes itself as being immune to virii be a feat in itself? Would that not bring you recognition?
I really think that there are too many saftey precautions taken on the Mac to ensure malicious software can't do damage. They patch security issues before you even hear about them as opposed to MS's stance of "one major update a month".
The last "issue" on a mac, that I can remember, was about 7 or 8 years ago when a worm (I forget the name) caused a bit of a stink.
Very slick av, Skoles.
Those are the effects of hitting 4-way blotter acid after running a train on some black tar heroin.
The mystery has been revealed.
