What\'s the difference between Vista and Mac OS X?
« on: August 28, 2008, 09:03:00 AM »
I thought posting this funny related article. Am a happy Mac User by the way.

http://http://minimsft.blogspot.com/2006/03/vista-2007-fire-leadership-now.html

• Fer cripes sake, just get a Mac already.
• Being a 10+ year [Microsoft] vet I feel ashamed and sad. This company is a mess on so many levels.
• Here\'s the way out: MS should swallow real hard, ante up half of what they blew on Longwind, and buy an OS X license from Apple. That would be about $10B up-front, and a hefty royalty. MS would have to assume the burden of making it run on all the crapbox PCs out there, which have had all the quality squeezed out of them, due to MS\'s having sucked up the lion\'s share of the profit from all PCs for the last 20 years or so. The benefit is that MS could finally ship a securable OS, and the users wouldn\'t have to lose countless hours trying to work around the malware. Meanwhile, the only semi-competent part of the company, the Mac Business Unit, would take the lead in Apps development.
• Vista is a disaster. The "reset" you mention is nothing less than a FAILURE to SHIP. What you\'re working on now isn\'t Longhorn, it\'s SP4. Don\'t kid yourself. If you want to salvage your career, flee to Office, or better yet, get the heck out of the company before it all collapses.
• Ballmer is incompetent. The interview mentioned previously is terrible. Ballmer has presided over the fall of Microsoft. He sucks. When are internal folks going to stop falling for this mythological aristocracy? He and Bill are just weak men who aren’t in control.
• Compare this to OS X, where people fall all over themselves trying to get the newest version running on their old hardware because there\'s actual value in the new features. So Vista has its guts ripped out, slips, and we wait another 5 years for a potentially insipring version of Windows, meanwhile Apple ships another 3 updates to OS X.
• God, we look like DEC more and more every day.
• I took part in a computer trade show early this month in Germany, and Microsoft was showing Vista, and the Microsoft fans were saying it looks like OS X (Apple wasn\'t there). Apple is on a roll, and we\'ve just given them enough time to get the next version of OS X out the door (whatever animal name it is going to be). And we can guess right now what their marketing push will be: Stop waiting for those guys who can\'t even copy our old stuff in time. Get the original from us -- we ship on time, we\'re shipping right now.
• I wonder how many employees at PC hardware companies are wishing they had some way to call up Apple and license OS X for Intel. They could have 10.4 "Tiger" on PC hardware in a matter of weeks.
• What\'s the difference between Mac OS X and Vista? Microsoft employees are excited about Mac OS X.

===> Now the last item is incredibly funny hehe

OS X is a BSD Unix based operating system with a GUI which is more user   friendly than Windows for many users. The OS allows for permissions   based accounts, and has better access controls to limit the spread of   malicious software   (yes, there are viruses and proof of concepts which target Apple   software), and protects the system folder from write actions unless a   user has administrative privileges.

Windows is prevalent in business environments, and has differing   architectures based upon which flavor is installed (there are vast   differences between 3.11, 95, 2000, XP, [size=100% ! important][color=darkgreen ! important]Vista[/color][/size],   and 7) and the variations would best be researched on a product   information site. Because of the popularity of Windows, malware and   viruses are numerous, and an antivirus program is often the bare minimum   that a user must use to protect their computing resources and data.

Mac OS X is good operating system.The  fact that most people won't upgrade to Vista until they buy a new PC isn't an indictment of the company's operating system.
