I have a 5 button mouse on my mac, and a 22inch cinema display. Gotta love it.

I figure those who haven't been on a mac, really don't know what they are missing.

I was a PC gamer before I found my mac, and to be honest, my games don't crash and my screen is huge. What is not to be happy about?

Ok who has Tiger and why won't my SonyEricsson T610 connect now? Do we like Tiger?
I wonder if it was a big enough upgrade?

im presuming ur talking about a mobile phone and why won't it connect, maybe its because you just put your old sim card into your newer phone, I found that was the case with mine and thats why it would not connect for me

Hi Tim,

did you install your T630 with iSync under Tiger? Well I have here Tiger running, and its sweet, my Sony Ericsson K700i runs perfect. Whats about Bluetooth, did you turn it on? Also on your Mac? Try it out, perhaps you have not the right location on (Systempreferences and then BT enabled)

I hope it works for you: feel free to contact me for further support. Very Happy

Iron Maiden, please inform yourself first, before posting the things that are not true. The MacOS X system is not 30 yrs old, it just uses UNIX, which is an underlayer of the MacOS X, the kernel in OSX is FreeBSD, and it is not 30yrs old, its the newest developement. So you should tell all the Mercedes Benz drives, that they drive a car which is over 100yrs old, because Mercedes as a brand is so old.. Wink

Well so Windows XP is a dinosaur in comparison to OSX Tiger...

..what do they actually say. On a given day using given architectures running given executables, this machine was faster than that.

In the real world it is all meaningless because we all use computers for varied tasks.

I work in IT and have done for several years. What do I do (other than reading forums and internet surfing Smile)? A UNIX Systems engineer or administrator if you like. Primarily Sun Solaris and in the past RedHat Linux. When CAD systems all ran on UNIX workstations, they were my chosen desktop. I still have a Sun Workstation on my desk, it is great for doing certain tasks. My other desktop is a Dell laptop running XP and a Compaq desktop running W2K (I am using that right now).

I always maintained UNIX was the best OS ever. It is for certain tasks (of which I am not going to bore you all). Solaris is like English to me, however I really find my Intel based machines fantastic to use. They very very rarely fail. I admit Windows 9x and ME etc were a bit lame. NT fixed alot of that but W2K and XP really fixed that.

The point of this is, all things equal. Fit for purpose and ROI (Return on investment) are what help companies make their IT decisions.

I have seen IBM, HP all make their comparisons against MS and Sun etc. MS against Linux ROI etc etc. Naturally they all fall in favour of the company who owns the software/hardware that they are trying to prove.

If you want to run a word processor, spreadsheets etc then a Windows or Linux PC will always win when taking into account price and performance.

I like it that Bill Gates has competition from Linux and other companies such as Apple because it means choice. In many IT application Windows will always win, for ease of use and the aforementioned topics.

I love my Sun but admire Windows and Linux very much indeed.

Just look at how many companies use Windows on the desktop and the back office (servers). Please don't tell me that they are all brainwashed, as IT professionals in my experience make very good choices.

One other thing, having a Kernel that is 30 years old + is really a good thing. It was established over 30 years ago and has been developed ever since. Microsoft are playing catch up (doing it quite well) for reliability and security.

Sorry this was long winded. It is not an attack against Apple, I feel it is more like putting it all into perspective.

I absolutely LOVE Tiger. I've been using OS X since it was in beta form and have watched it slowly come from totally unusable to rock solid. I seem to have fewer glitches in Tiger and have not had one crash.

A different perspective, I used to use an Amiga 3000 which was probably the single most fun I've ever had on a computer. Mac OS X brings all that fun back that I used to have on the Amiga, especially the memory management and TRUE multitasking of the OS.

OS X is the most stable operating system out there. It literally heals itself when something goes wrong, which is rarely; never crashes (well once or twice long ago); uses iChat with iSight - the best; and is so easy to use that even I can - I being a 71 year old granma; doesn't need anything except a one click mouse; zips thru heavy duty applications like Photoshop CS for a 10 MB graphic; etc., etc., etc.

Everyone should have at least one; put it up against your PC - see how it looks - sleek and gorgeous (oh that design team) and put them both to work. There is no comparison...

Very Happy

Why don't we see Macs in the work place?

I work for a very large PEO company and our system we use is ORACLE.

The only time I saw a mac was in my kids school ?????

Why aren't they out in the work place ??

Purchased a Mac laptop for personal use because it had a good price, portability and all the software I needed already included. It would have been too expensive to buy as a IBM compatible/MS run machine with software purchased separately. Is that too easy for businesses?

Have worked at a place that used Mac on a network; very efficient and rarely a comment that it froze, did not work or was too complicated. The network was self-run with in-office fixes if needed and only rare IT intervention. The database was also self-designed and utilized. I will use as the office computer if I ever get the chance.

Again it all depends on the company. You guys are slightly biased Wink as am I about Sun.

Unfortunately not everybody finds these alternatives to their taste. Thankfully that is why we are all different!!!

I bought a gently used older imac for $40 at my school. I love it! It's a life saver! And it doesn't hurt that it used to belong to a teacher. He taught web graphics and stuff like that so there's a bunch of programs on it that I have no clue how to work. They're fun to play with though.

I love Tiger. One thing I like bout apples is it plays well with the windows, linux, and unix machines on my personal network. I run 12 machines on it behind a cisco router, and a gigabit switch, mostly for learning. 1 machine is great to learn on, but having many, and many different kinds, teach me how to fix them when they go wrong.
