    Dear Mr.Isaacs,
    I know you have your mac fanboi ideals, but you know as well as i do that was in no way a fair test on any of your examples, I have my grudges against M$ as much as anyone but it could have at least been fair. Firstly are these machines running on a similar spec? It very much seems like they aren’t even though we know windows is generally slower, second the pc was booted up from cold whereas the mac was already on…i think you catch my drift.
    you can work out the rest of the problems I’m off for a cuppa.
    Still love ya, Mark B-Cole.

    • Hi Mark, nice to hear from you fella.
      Yes they were, infact the windows machine was booted on a new machine as I used my sisters old mac to do the screen capture on while using remote desktop and screen sharing. The boot time for the mac was taken into account and added, it just wasnt possible to capture the mac booting as the screen capture software wouldn’t boot with it.

      Other than that its an accurate test and I stand by the accuracy of it 😛

    Ah okay, to be honest on most accounts i will agree with you about macs and PC, but eventually for me it just comes down to preference.
    My comp at home is one i built myself and has speeds faster than and equal to the mac and i run xp and win7 on that but on my diddy netbook i run the ubuntu netbook remix (linux) cos i took off the xp lol.
    I think price usually comes into account with this but also i still feel on macs that if i want to do something more “intimate” (lol) with something in the machine or it’s system it tries to stop me, and it’s much more open on M$ or linux.
    However the fact does very much remain that mac’s are well built and secure systems and machine’s (even if they are elitist, i give here the example’s of the lack of third party free apps on iphone etc although there are many other examples).

    It would appear i was very much talking out of my arse there, my only defence is that i was copying the words of someone on The Register from about 6 months back or more probably, maybe it had something more to do with open source i dunno i must apologise.
    To change our course totally on this conversation what programs do you use for your film and web developement?

    Hmm something strange has happened here, i left a post after that saying basically it seems i had been talking out of my backside a bit, but it has disappeared. Anyway my only defence is that i was copying the words of someone a while back on The Reg although it was very possibly more about open source than free 3rd party developers, the main part that disappeared was the question about what programs you use in your film editing and web development?

    • Hi Mark, I have to approve all comments before they appear on the blog and I hadnt got round to approving your last one, it should be there now 🙂 To make that mac vs pc clip I used a program called Screenflow. My website (jonathanisaacs.com) is coded using a program called Rapidweaver and this blog is created through WordPress.com. Why have you got a film?

    si si senior,
    ah i thought it had been moderated, it was just cos it was up for a while then disappeared, okay well the only reason i wanted to know really is due to my general interest in computers and i like to play with programs, plus the film ones can come in handy in theatre productions sometimes if we have to edit any projection or the like. However for playing these we often use Arkaos as it’s very good for effects and video’s although other video cue-ing software can be more appropriate.

    • Ahhh I see, well as a Mac fan boy I love the mac and would never go back. This screenflow software is great as when you have to explain something to someone rather than give them a paper guide I can just send them a quick video. Ive even got a cool piece of software that will stream my screen (or a section of it) to a channel on the internet that anyone can use, perfect if I need to teach something to several people at once, something that I do occasionally have to do 🙂

  • Mark

    Does sound like a nice piece of software, i’ll have to try and find a windows version 😉
    What are your opinions on linux operating systems then? I’m not the biggest fan but i do like to use them for certain things.
    What uni you at anyway? what course you doing?
    How’s the photography business heh lots of questions.

    • Hahaha, it is an amazing piece of software, however as with most great pieces of Mac software they are just available on the mac 😛
