Thread: windows 7 vs snow leopard?

Ok, I do prefer Macitosh, but you guys already know this, but I still have to tell you. YOU JUST CANT COMPARE THEM! Each people may have different opinions depending on their needs. Also, on this forums obviously Mac is gonna win since probably most readers have or prefer mac since this forums are all about apple. Not a fair poll.

Without using Snow Leopard, I would say Windows 7. But honestly, I like Mac, but I don't know, maybe I'm bais because I've wanted a Mac for years and this Christmas, I finally got it.. haha.
But Windows 7 does has some amazing features like the maximizing of windows by dragging and stuff.

Just hold down the option key when you boot, or install rEFIt rEFIt - An EFI Boot Menu and Toolkit.
I use the later.

Get a Mac. Then you can have your cake and eat it, too. Run both OS's side-by-side or each one individually and natively, whenever and however you want.
Case closed.(2011) Mac mini Core i5-2520M 2.5GHz-3.2GHz (Turbo Boost) | 8GB DDR3 RAM | AMD Radeon HD 6630M | 27" LED Cinema Display | 6TB GRAID | 3TB Time Capsule 4th gen | iPhone 4 | iPad 2 | Apple TV 2nd gen. | Magic Trackpad | I surrender...

The issue with Boot Camp is that Boot Camp drivers causes more crashes on Windows than on a PC. It's good, but it has crappy drivers.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

Would you say the same for parallels? I'm still considering doing this for my future MacBook air or just not selling my pc after getting it.

I would not say the same for Parallels.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

If you have a mac, i'd use Snow Leopard

VM ware IMO is better than parallels and its fairly simple to use as well. But you'd have to get a superdrive for the macbook air to install windows and vmware- assuming this is entirely legal.
Also to the OP, get the mac, for the simple reason that it has higher resale value. If you don't like it you could sell it and have the cash to get a W7 laptop and the extra software.

Mac OS X features more advanced controls by the end user in the long run. Multitouch controls, simple interfaces, speed: all without sacrificing power. Windows 7 is a very bulky operating system consisting of patchy updates and Microsoft's spot-cleaning method of installing those updates. It's a good operating system but I can't use it when I have Mac OS X available to me. Windows 7 is generally my excuse for DirectX and nothing else. Everything else that I do is done on Mac OS X on my part. While people will argue that Windows has more customizations and controls, Mac OS X has the ability to do the same; it does require a somewhat tech-savy person to do so. Just as installing themes on Windows replaces core files with themed files for Windows to recognize, Mac OS X will follow the same suit if those files are replaced. The only difference is that Mac OS X themes generally do not come as installable packages and in turn require the user to implement the files themselves. I feel the UNIX structure of Mac OS X is better than Windows 7's management system.
Windows 7 just doesn't compare to Mac OS X's sleekness. To me it's bulky and unnecessary unless you need DirectX.
