    Stop winning windows lovers. You can always run a vm for your lame os. I remember it was hard to do in the days of PowerPC but the world has advanced. It won't be an issue.

    But winning is good, isn't it, why would I want to stop?

    I think you mean whining! Doesn't your Mac have spell check?

    If windows is so lame, then why do so many people want to run it on a Mac?

    But I thought Crapple was AMAZING and OS X does EVERYTHING that any fanboy could ever need? Why would you need to run Windows when OS X is supposedly sooooo amazing???

    hahaha EXACTLY!! Crapple users LOVE to boast about how amazing OS X is and how it can do everything yet they are ALWAYS talking about how they "NEED TO RUN WINDOWS" or their POS MAC.

    I understand that OS X has it's place for SIMPLE PEOPLE, but by no means is it anywhere near as amazing as Windows based systems. PERIOD!

    Nope, VMs only work when the processor architecture is the same for both the host and guest OS. If Apple switched CPUs, you'd have to use an emulator instead which would be MUCH slower.

    People! Chill out! If Apple does this, they aren't going to start putting ARM processors in their computers. It'll still be x86, like intel and it'll still run Windows. They just want to make their "own brand" of processors like they have done with iOS platforms.
    I like apple stuff.
    If you see the username "McMichael96" anywhere, it's probably me.

    Exactly. Apple is many things - but one of them 'isn't' STUPID.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    What war? There is no war, Windows users won that war a long time ago. I bet that probably 90% of the stuff out there today is NOT MAC COMPATIBLE! When Mac users go out and buy new products you can bet that checking to see if the product they're looking to buy is compatible with their Mac is something they have to do every time. But see Windows users don't have to bother with things like that. It's all the Mac users that have to live with the constant disappointment of reading things like...

    "Not compatible with MAC"
    "No support for MAC"
    "Runs on Windows only"

    THe source may be reputable but the quote isn't very grounded. It's only mentioned where he quotes it and it literally only says, "say two people familiar with the discussion." it's 100% unfounded skepticism. ( plus, i mean come on, it's Anthony... His articles are all about the titles.)
