Just like many people have been caught up in the whole idea of PC (Windows) vs Mac train of thought, I was guilty of this. To the masses, Mac might seem like some foreign and pricey operating system for high-end, snobby users, however I’m learning this thinking isn’t entirely true. I know that I’m a little late in getting to the Mac table, but better late than never!
What I’ve come to realize is that although Mac products tend to cost more initially, I cannot help but also take serious note that Mac users actually save money in the long term. Why? Because the system is essentially trouble-free; no constant threats of infections, software incompatibility, no ever waning performance issues and no frequent need for tech support. What does all of this mean for the end-user? It means Mac users are generally happy people. They’ve got it easy, not having to always fight to keep their operating system updated, protected and performing well. No need to pay tech support to do all of this for them, when they don’t know how to themselves; meaning they are hassle-free, saving time and money. Their only concern is how will they spend their time on their actual computing interests, not the computer itself. Let me repeat: They are NOT concerned with the computer itself! They are busily enjoying the most excellent care-free digital life!
Clearly countless Mac users have already discovered these extremely valuable qualities, yet even more end-users have not. Last I heard, Mac users comprise of only 5 – 6% of computer users. As I have delved deeper into the World of Linux, and realize how very similar Linux is to Mac, I have a profoundly marked appreciation for the Mac operating system. To all of the nay-saying Windows users out there (as I myself once was), I implore you to strongly consider the most wonderful alternatives: Mac and Linux operating systems!
And should you find that, when you finally remove the Microsoft blinders from your eyes and genuinely realize there are other dimensions to the computing World, try your hand at Mac or Linux, because there’s no reason you cannot learn to appreciate what they have to offer without totally abandoning your Windows OS. Although, with serious consideration, you very well just might! A much better computer experience awaits you! What are you waiting for? Plain and simple, Mac users are HAPPY users! Free yourself!
