Love the Leader

Anchordesk columnist David Coursey learns to love the leader, er, OS X.: Can a Windows guy learn to love the Mac? You bet!

I like this little iMac and don't want to give it up. It's a whole lot more fun than my Windows machine, and a great creative tool
  • On the Mac, the computer just doesn't get in the way of my work as much a PC does.
  • Mac is a vastly superior platform for digital movies and photography than stock Windows XP.
  • Instant messaging, including video conferencing, works better on Windows XP than on Mac OS X. Media players work better on Windows. For example, there's no version of the latest RealPlayer for OS X, and nothing I've seen makes me sure there ever will be
The lack of a native RealPlayer is very annoying. It's one of the only applications I use regularly that does not have a native OS X version. So I'm using less Real media instead of loading Classic more frequently. Posted by Andrew Raff at April 18, 2002 01:02 PM
