"Ron Miller" wrote in message about that of a six year
old.

There are numerous Mac trolls posting here. It may be the same person
using different personas, but if they really are different people, then
"Ted Landry" is the most desperately mentally ill of the bunch.
Rather than "plonking" him, it would be better if no one would rise to the
bait he dangles.


I'm feeling pretty confident that Ted, Michele and Earthschol (the 3 I know
of) are all the same person. No hard proof other than 2 of them corrected me
because I like to write MAC instead of Mac. All of them have the same
approach and that is Someone has a critical problem and they offer no
answer, other than to buy a MAC and live happy, odd that 3 different people
would all share the same arrogant self serving approach.

Though it does appear that they have at least 2 different PCs, as looking at
the message properties, one is posted from a PPC MAC OSX and the other is
posted from Intel Mac OSX. All use the same 3.5.2 version of MT-Newswatcher,
and they all appear to use Quest.net for their ISPs

It would seem kinda sad, if a loyal Mac OSX user has to pretend to be
multiple people to try and make windows users feel bad about using Vista.

Ted I've owned Mac's and I've owned PC's and I'm about to own a Mac again
here soon.

That being said, you're still a moronic troll.

Market share cannot go down if you are gaining, only if you are losing.

what the Big Boys and Girls use when they want the most power under the

That being the case with Macs. They actually ARE losing over 2 years.

No. OSX has gained 1.8% share in the last 2 years, that has all come at
the expense of Windows, (and a tiny bit from Linux).

The public is wisening up about the error using Windows in the modern
world, so the switch to Macs continues exponentially.

Apple's marketshare continues to climb, up 34.6 per cent, year on year,
new statistics reveal. According to Net Applications' latest research...
Mac usage has climbed a phenomenal 52.8 per cent since January 2005.

I don't think that Apple had anything to do with Intel developing the Core
2 Processor, AMD had the better CPU for a number of years taking market
share from Intel. Intel came back with the Core2 now AMD is following
behind.


Yes they did. You didn't follow the story when it was happening. Steve
had Paul Otellini gather 1,100 Intel employees to work on the Mac
processor project... then once they were finished, Steve even had Paul
don a Bunny Suit and present Steve with the first wafer. Picture is here.

was almost a match for what IBM was doing with their PowerPC processors.
PowerPC is still faster of course, especially in math but Intel is
starting to show some head way.


Then why switch to Intel if the PowerPC is a faster CPU ?


It's because IBM was scared of Apple quickly moving up the SuperComputer
Rankings, so they put on the brakes. Look at the new Photoshop CS3
benchmarks, the Quad PPC still out performs the Quad Intel Machines.
Granted this is in high end / math operations, but it's what high
powered users want. So far, Intel is still behind the PowerPC "for power
users". In time this will change of course, but currently PowerPC is the
better chip. Look at all the game platforms, they all use PowerPC... not
Intel!

Then I will for sure stay far away from those new Mac's using the Intel
Core2 processors because your OSX is far to good to run on IBM PC parts.


Yes, you can't really run a sophisticated OS such as OSX on top of a box
of old IBM "parts", it requires more elegant hardware designs to support
apps such as this...


So why go with Intel, ATI and nVidia parts in the Mac Pro. Makes it just a
PC like mine AMD 4200 x2, ATI X1900 XTX, nVidia based MB.


Excepts those are just "parts", the MacPro totally outruns your system
since Apple does MB engineering unlike any of the PC Vendors or White
Box vendors. All you are doing is putting a bunch of parts together...
Apple doesn't do that, it actually "engineers" the whole system, thus
you get a lot more performance for the price.

http://www.apple.com/macpro/specs.html This is your Link Ted

http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/ichat/

AMD is showing some promise on the very high end, but AMD doesn't yet
have a consumer level processor able to run OSX at the level Apple
requires.


You are really not making any sense here, Is it the PC Hardware or the MS OS
you dont like because you are swinging both ways here by saying the OSX is
to sophisticated for hardware that Apple itself uses with its systems so
taking that into account Apple computers should have no problems at all
running Windows Vista because of its hardwares sophistication over an IBM
PC.


I'm simply saying "it's an entire system approach" that makes the best
product for the user. Yes, OSX is 50% of the equation, and Apple
Hardware is another 50%, but you can't put Vista on Apple Hardware and
have it work as well as OSX does on the same hardware. Same as you can't
put OSX on regular Intel hardware and have it work as well as a Mac.

It's a "system" and it will forever outshine what is available to
Windows / Intel users since there is no vendor strong enough in the
WinTel space to build the entire widget. (Sun maybe, but you pay a lot
for that)

Sure right, at a 1% gain a year it will be the year 2050 before they
catch up to Windows.

Assuming your numbers are accurate that's hardly skyrocketing
performace if that adds 1% gain per year. That's like a bank giving
you a fat 2% interest rate on a CD and they jump it up to a whopping
4% next year. Big wow! Not!

Remember all the noise about Linux surpassing Windows a few years
back? Didn't happen did it.

You can probably tell I'm not a big Microsoft fan. However I'm a
realist. Like it or not, its a Windows world unless and until some
other major company with deep pockets decides to get into the game and
really go toe to toe with Microsoft. At least that may force them to
clean up their act some. Apple will never be it because they refuse to
give up on their Mickey Mouse closed architecure model which is one
thing that's held them down all these years.

The really important thing about the Neowin article is at the end.

"These statistics were first gathered and analysed by the Switch To A Mac
website."

And

"News source: Macworld UK"

So, it's simply more of borin Mac yawn.

Do you even understand the meaning of the word exponential?

Do you even know what an exponent is?

If so then please stop using the word as it's deceptive.

A less than 2% increase in your current share ISN'T as 2% overall increase.

When will you learn basic math?

Nope. In 2 years, down from 6% worldwide to 4%. Sadly for you, your toy is
losing amongst everyone.
