CTRL-V Thread is prejudice against Macintosh!

If you were really mac friendly, you would have ctrl-v or option-v.

Switch to Mac.
Lose CTRL, Gain Command!

No no no... pcs stole PASTE from mac back from MAC V1.1 (the first REAL OS)... and it is COMMAND-V not control-V --- control click is the conventional right click on a mac.


for me CMD-V beings up the following...

Who would want to use one of those virus filled crashing, unstable POS boxes (called PCs or windows boxes) anyway!

No matter how much you find, there will still be 100x more software available for the PC.

Yep, so instead of 50 <insert use here> applications, most of which are crap, I get 5-10 applications, most of which work great.

I cannot possibly explain how different this feels to me. No wires, no mess, no complexity, no confusion, just a great OS that works without fuss. I'm so glad I ditched Windows.

I like macs alot. I like them because I have to remind myself to hit save every two minutes. I like it best when they decide to crash. It's usually after I've spent 9 hours editing video, right before I hit save for that last time.

That's fun.

Macs are proprietary. You have less control over your machine. PC’s are easy to build. And what’s all this talk about Windows? You don’t need that crap when you can get the likes of Fedora or Gentoo

Since most of what we do is browse, type, ppt, and email ... so what? If you program, macs work. If you do graphic design, macs work. If you do digital music or video, macs work. A lot of junk is still just junk. You would have to find some pretty niche programs to not be able to use a mac.

And the term of art is Open Apple + v!

I won't argue that.....PC does have 100X more software, but agreed, 90% of it is junk.

It's mroe that some cool programmer who has a neat idea for a program or something is 99% more likely to write/compile the program for PC, not Mac.

I agree that Macs are great for sound and video and photo work and all that. Personally...I think they are "the computer" for that niche market.


Yeah...SOME people just use their pc for browsing, typing, email, etc.... I'M NOT ONE....I go much deeper with my computer, but I know I'm on the fringe, not the "average user".

Interesting that it was Microsoft that came up with the cmd-C and cmd-V copy/paste functions in '83 for Apple.
