Comment Re:Were the users randomized? (Score 1) 509

my mother has used macs ever since they began, she had an original apple (the little square box with the keyboard and mouse). she has upgraded her mac every 3-4 years or so, she hates windows.. as the years have gone by she has gotten increasingly more frustrated with apple and it's OS, saying it is more like windows.

she now has issues with the OS all the time, i have had to go and have apple reimage the system every couple of years because it is completely unusable by that time.

i support an environment of 40% mac and 60% pc and the macs do all of the above, plus they lose searching in outlook, they drop bluetooth support needing SMC restarts and removal of ALL usb devices, they can't properly sync with AD, they have problems with WIFI profiles.

they are just as bad as windows and a little bit worse because anything you can typically rma and cross ship with a PC supplier you have to go and sit at the apple store for support. and after 2 hours there they RMA the device anyways.. but don't offer any type of data transfer.

not to mention all of the crap that is widely discussed in PC forums is on lockdown in the apple forums and receive no answer.. just a random fix from apple x years down the road with no acknowledgement or word as to why it was borked in the first place.
