I wanted a Mac for a few years and always thought my next computer would be one. However looking at pros/cons, last Dec I went and bought a Vista-based laptop (nice laptop as it goes: Dell XPS M1330, crimson red, 2.2, 2GB, 160GB, LCD).
After frustrating and annoying times with Vista, today I really have had it (again). And tomorrow I'll buy a Mac (again). Hopefully I would have come to my senses by tomorrow and go off the idea once again (all I have to do is step inside the APple store and it makes me cringe). I've just spent Ł1k on a Dell, I shouldn't really spend any more on another computer. The Mac will do many things to p*ss me off as well.
The network applet in Vista really sucks just like it did in every other version of Windows (ok, it sucks less, but it still sucks). I was downloading some stuff using wireless, and decided to plug in the network cable and figured I better go into the network app to "do something to make it work" - but the netApp in Windows is so pathetic.
Now I'm done with the rant.
EDIT: @ CarbonLite: I really dont want this to be another Mac v Windows thread. Quite frankly I dont have spare money buring a hole in my account, I just have this Mac itch I need to scratch.
EDIT 2: I've had laptop since December. Now it's April. I've had 16 crashes in that time. That averages out to once /week. I suppose I should update the Dell drivers, but ticking all those boxes within Dell Support for driver downloads is PITA (or I should htfu).
