Why I’ll Never Use A Mac

I think this screenshot I made of Windows XP sums things up very nicely:

Also note that this configuration can be done on Windows 95, NT 4.0, 98/SE, ME, 2000, Vista, & 7. Hell it might even be doable on Windows 3.x, NT 3.x and there might be a chance of it being able to be done on Windows 2.x.

    I seem to remember Mac OS X shipping with two different color schemes, but I don’t know if the new Unified look in Leopard carried it over.

    Two different color schemes? Well, if it’s all in the name of “simplicity”, so be it. Apple lost their taste back when they DESTROYED THE APPLE ][. That was THE hobbyist machine of the 1980s, second only to the venerable Commodore 64.

    System colors could be changed all the way back in Windows 1.0:

    I sometimes wonder what would have happened if the Macintosh had never been developed to begin with (or was a flop like the III and Lisa) and Apple Computer had continued to develop and improve Woz’s Apple II line throughout the 1980s and 1990s instead. No doubt the computing world would be a lot different today…

    Ahh.. so I was kinda right on the color scheme configuration front. The Apple I/II was for the hobbyist. It was the hobbyist. No other machine could even come close those days (even the C64 which was/is the best computer ever created. Ever see an old Mac as a web server?

    And two days later, Microsoft goes live with Windows 7 themes.
