I''ve been a windows user starting with Window's 3.1 all the way to Vista. I've put up with viruses, trojan horses, malware, etc. I've learned how to check for updates to all my peripherals. I've put up with huge window's updates that didn't seem to fix anything. I've learned how to defragment my hard drive once a week, delete cookies every day, empty the trash every week, etc.
Using a Window's computer means lots of check ups on your computer to keep the security and software up to date and safe. It means having to figure out how your computer files things. Nothing is intuitive.
I finally got tired of the B.S.
I bought my first mac in Sept.
I am a very proud owner of a 13in. early 2011 macbook pro. I would't trade it for anything.
I've never had a computer that makes sure all of my software and peripherals are up to date without me doing anything. I've never been able to use the built in security and feel safe using the internet. I've never had access to a wide range of applications that make my college and home life run seamlessly.
I never plan on going back to Window's.
For those complaining about their Macs. It could be worse. You could have a PC.

Lately I've heard from the internet that Windows 8 will come out in late 2012. By that time, Apple will be at probably OS X 10.7.7 and might announce Mac OS X 10.8 is coming out next year. Of course, by that time Lion will perfectly stabilize the operating system, seeing that even at 10.7.1, Lion still feels a bit like beta (almost worse actually) in terms of crashes of apps, launchpad and mission control issues, and other little things. So it really might be 10.8 vs Windows 8 in 2013.

Lion is a big disappointment so far. So many things I used to take for granted have been removed in Lion. Without 3rd party software you cant even surf the net. Without iSync you can't F**king sync with your phone or pda, unless it's an ipod or an iphone. Let's talk about Quicktime Pro. I heavily relied on QT 7 Pro since every version since then has gotten worse. But Apple has always given you the option of keeping both. You can't install Pro on Lion. Lion is not geared for the Pro, hence Final Cut Pro-mini. No, Nadda. No color. It's a grey and white color scheme, not only in iTunes (the icons to the left) But in the finder as well. It's boring, not to mention upside down.
When you change something for the better it's usually a good thing, but Apple dropped the ball with OSX Vista.

Funny only people who use other software then Apple have problems with it. have you guys thought that just maybe it the Dev's fault NOT apples (& btw I am a Dev, & i update my apps to work with the new software because my customers acutely mean something to me (after all they do pay my bills))

Steve Jobs announced at the original iPhone launch, "iPhone runs OS X". Direct verbatim quote. Only later did that morph into iOS.

I hope that Apple learns from Microsoft's debacle from XP to Vista(ugh) to finding resolution in Win7. Leopard to Snow Leopard was a great leap forward. Lion....I don't know what Apple was thinking. I hope a point release will add Rosetta support back, Spaces as it was in SL, and gesture support in the browsers that broke with 10.7 release.

Looks like Microsoft found some folks with graphic interface saavy...they just might have another swing left in them.

OS X Vista is a real downfall. Notice it doesn't have a sync option. No iSync. No syncing with non IOS devices. No QT Pro. No Flash support. No color in the finder or itunes. If Win8 is anything like Win 7, it may be worth investing in, new software and all. I can keep my mac and dump OS X. How ironic, but seriously an option.

I'm sorry, but you don't know what you're talking about. No QT7 Pro? I have it running in Lion right now. No Flash support? Really? Because 'support' sort of means that it actually doesn't work, and well, Flash works fine in Lion. I'll give you iSync and the boring sidebar, but apart from that, your points are all wrong.

Hmm lion is the best release so far as it has more stability as well as ease of use (something snow leopard did not) sounds like your a pc user

Sounds like you just switched to a mac. I've been using Apple since Lisa. Lion is a crippled cat.
