"Mac's there only choice for any educated user."5.0 starson by Beanshell
Pros: Intuitive interface, ease of use, Powerful search engine built in. And let's not forget the lack of worrying about the safety of your information, to the lack of pop-ups, viruses and malware! With Apple OS's they are non-issues!
Cons: Most things in life have cons. This OS by Apple is imo the example of when you listen to users and actually implement them unlike Windows.
Summary: From turning your Mac OS 10.7 powered Mac on to turning it off you are reminded of why Apple is enjoying an historic rise in user base. From it's beautiful interface to it's ease of use the Mac running any of the incarnations since Apple started using and updating OS 10 the user is faced with how computing should be done in the 21rst century.
There is nothing you don't need, and everything you DO need here. Your'e not faced with a dressed up version of an old OS like Windows does. I mean Apple offers one version of it's OS and you can feel safe that it will surpass anything you will need and stay current and relevant for the life of it's version. Unlike Windows who continues to put out version after version that is not user friendly and is basically dressing up the antiquated Windows 95. Everything Windows has done since then can be traced and looks much like it did over a decade ago.
Not true with Apple's OS 10. It is a huge leap forward for operating systems and shows it's power with everything it shows you it can do with ease.
There is something to be said for a company who will let ANY old piece of garbage company let it's OS be run from. Not so with Mac's. If it doesn't make the computer component itself, it chooses very carefully a company that will enhance and compliment it's operating system. Macs are simply not only beautiful to look at but they are at it's heart powered by the most intuitive and powerful operating system on the face of the earth.
If all you know is a Windows experience you truly are missing the boat on what computers should be able to do in this century. You are settling for a cheap incomplete version of what Windows is trying to no avail to copy from Apple. The user base for Mac's OS is groaning faster than any other and there is a reason. If you don't believe this posters opinion all you have to do is pop into you local Apple store and get a first hand feeling for how Mac's run and how advanced the Mac OS is to anything you might be using.
