Vigi Katlowitz Posted over 1 year ago Mac vs Windows OS: One Size Fits All? The general assessment of Mac vs. PC is that Mac is generally overpriced compared to the parallel PC, but it does give you slightly better function. However, my decision to go PC is not only based on cost savings, but my perception of the company. Mac has been known for incredibly bad practices, treating their customers like sheep. For example, you aren't allowed to crack their phone to use an app you made, you need to go for their approval first. They refused to use the worldwide mini USB port, preferring to create their own brand instead (and of course making you buy their ridiculously overpriced charger). This forces you to live within their world, buying their own products. Yes, they get better quality control, but they are killing what makes computing great in the first place!!! They are killing user contributions. Even as someone who barely programs in this field, I refuse to support a company whose mission statement depends on isolation and brand creation rather than improving the world of computing. I don't see a "Steve Jobs" foundation.
