    I saw a movie once (I feel like it was one of the Star Trek movies) where one of the character's father had been on life support for a very long time, so the character finally decided to take him off of it. Turns out that they found the cure to whatever was wrong with him the next day. The son was riddled with guilt about it, but what could he do?

    I waited for you, Mac. I waited years and years, but when GW2 came out, I could hold out hope no longer. Now this? It's too late. It's just... too late.

    Apples are not gaming machines. They're for writers and graphic designers who wear big plastic glasses frames, and who wear scarves ten degrees before the weather calls for it.

    I know what I am.

    Oh I was just talking about the interface, I grew up on PCs so I know them inside and out no matter what changes were made to the OS, components, etc. I knew/know exactly where everything is and how to get access to certain parts of my computer be it data or physical.

    There's just something about a mac that feels I don't know off I suppose? The single button mouse is wacky, (Even with the first home computer I ever owned I had mice with three buttons, I'm going to be honest having only one flat surface and no mouse wheel/button seems like a design flaw) the touchpads (Which I despise no matter what form. Confuse me, where putting two fingers on the touchpad with a PC can enlarge or reduce the screen on a Mac it's used to scroll which I found very weird because even on older PC laptops there's a special part off to the side which you move across to scroll) are awkward with their extra functions and the layout of the desktop, and various programs while the differences aren't terribly large are enough to throw me off.

    I wasn't talking from a gaming standpoint I was coming from a 'Holy crap this is foreign to me' standpoint where I don't know enough about the other to use it reliably and that my few encounters with Macs have done nothing to elevate the product, in my eyes above anything my PC has ever or will ever be capable of doing and due to my upbringing this will likely never occur.



    I'm not trashing macs or trying to sound rude and certainly I could've actually posted something better than...well that but I'm going to stick with PCs simply because I know them better.

    I just like to pretend I'm relevant. Carry on.
