Mac Users Prefer Linux Over Windows

Filed under
Linux

Apple users are the most dedicated and fervent operating system fans. However, when given the option of a Linux-based computer or a Windows-based one, 100% say they would rather use Linux.

Mac users cite stability, ease of use, reliability, lack of viruses and sleek design as their main reasons that they love their Macs.

I do find it funny (strange not haha) that Mac users gave the same reasons given by Microsoft, and its fans, as why someone should love Windows. And those same Windows ads and fans say just the opposite about Linux.

rest here




re: Mac Users

What a load of crap.

If that was true, how come all those mac freaks use boot camp or virtualization to run Mac OS and still have Windows available?

Next time get a sample set for your survey that's slightly larger then just asking your older brother.

LG's got a flip phone that runs Android Lollipop

Flip phones aren't just for retro hipsters and the elderly anymore... well, actually they kind of are. But they're super popular in Asia, and now you can get one that'll run the latest apps: LG's Gentle flip phone. The faux-leather adorned device is running a bleeding edge version of Android 5.1 Lollipop and packing 4G LTE. Otherwise, it's not exactly a power-user's dream with a 3.2-inch 480 x 320 screen, 3-megapixel rear camera, 4GB of (expandable) storage and 1GB of RAM. But for just 20 million won ($175) it would make a fine second phone, provided you live in Korea -- it's unlikely to come here, and similar flip phones can be pricey to import. Read more
