What operating system do you use for design?

Post by .alson on Fri Aug 08, 2008 7:32 am

I personally have 3 macs, a Mac Pro (Leopard & Ubuntu), a Macbook Pro (Leopard) and a Mac Mini (Tiger and also it's acting as my media player, playing my DVDs and Musics) hooked to my TV.

So far, OSX is the best and most stable OS I've ever used. What about you?

I use PC Vista. I dont really like the vista part i think xp is the best. and dont think that i dont like macs because i have never used one i have one and use it but not for design. I should because they are better for that kind of stuff! I just dont i prefer my PC. Why? Because macs are all integrated! I can do whatever i want to my pc and it lets me. Even in my vista (witch is moving closer to a mac) i can still override those safty featchers and do what i want to it! But with graphics design mac all the way if that is ALL you want to do with it! if you have other things in mind pc.

Umm you can overwrite safety features in macs too. But it'll just crash it. But you can pop back in terminal mode to undo it.

Talking about crashes, windows have more crashes then OSX. And furthermore, OSX has got no virus. Currently there's only 1 loophole through safari, which I don't use anyway, I use firefox.

The no virus for mac thing is more like ... you don't get virus just from surfing the internet.

You can give 2 porn addicts, 1 a mac, and another a PC.

After a month, the mac has got no virus but the PC most probably can't even be booted as the virus would shut it down.

There was a research on this, forgot the article haha.

Anyway...

PC is for gaming
OSX is for working
Linux is for networking

and...

Vista is for dissing LOL

Lol just because you have a mac doesn't mean you're a pro. Because I have a ton of Linux distros doesnt mean I'm a nerd who's 35 and lives with his mom Very Happy

I use Windows XP + Photoshop. Dual booting FTW

Umm... Actually, if you interview to be a graphic designer, one of the first questions are what OS do you use.

If your resume has no trace of the OSX, you'll be automatically filtered out from the interview stack.

That's the reality of life. 10 out of 10 professional graphic studios uses OSX. Non used windows. The only trace of windows are through either dual booting or just a laptop to ensure design consistency. Other then that, professional graphic designers don't touch Windows.

And sad to say, 9 out of 10 users are smug asshole and 1 out of 10 don't have a clue what to do with their mac lol.
