Apple users are the most dedicated and fervent operating system fans with undying loyalty to their operating system, hardware and peripherals. And they're just as loyal now to the new Unix-based OS X as they were to the old proprietary Mac OS. 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've personally never owned a modern Mac or an iAnything so I can only report what I've been told in a recent survey of Mac users. I do understand, however, their reasons for loving the Mac. I've never been able to afford a Mac product but, if what they say is true then the Mac may pay for itself many times over with uptime and fewer problems.
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.
How can it be both ways?
Mac users would rather use Linux because it's more like the Mac OS but Windows users say that Linux is too hard. Something there doesn't make sense to me.
I'm not taking sides on this one but rather only reporting what I've been told.
For the sake of you and other DaniWeb readers, I'd like to hear from Mac users who've also used Linux to find out if my other survey was flawed. Write back and let me know what you think about the following question: If your Mac were unavailable to you and you had a choice of a Windows PC or a Linux PC, which would you choose and why?
