Some common PC complaints:

Viruses and Spyware: This is the big one. I’m so frigging tired of having to worry about viruses, trojans and other malware. Why is this my problem? It’s not my fault so many people hate Bill Gates and want to do everything they can to mess with his junk. I have better things to do than spend all of my time changing passwords and removing infected files.

Added Costs of Anti-Virus Programs: Which, by the way, don’t do jack most of the time. I’ve used Zonelabs, AVG, Norton, Symantec – they all let viruses through. It’s probably a conspiracy. As if these guys aren't super rich enough already!

Forced Internet Explorer Usage: I read ebooks with MS Reader most of the time. If you want to install this, you can click on the link via Firefox – but once you are on the MS website, it tells you that you have to use IE to view anything. Not very friendly!

You MUST Keep Your Crap Updated: What a chore this is, especially if you’re not naturally techish. I mean, yeah, it’s reasonable to expect me to maintain my computer. But it’s not reasonable to assume I will always get it right when I have no background in computer engineering. And with Windows, you might have to update new patches, etc. every freaking day! I know, I know there’s the auto updater. But in the past I’ve had problems with that as well.

You Can’t Properly Get Rid of What You DON’T Want! PC’s come with so much crap you will never use. You can try to remove much of it, but many times this creates errors and bizarre messages, setting you up for problems in the future. Which can screw everything up, and often does.


JUST DONT GET A PC UNLESS YOU WANT TO SMASH IT OR SUFFER!

Troll and/or technically challenged person.

Also, your complaints are directed at the Windows OS, not PCs (yes, contrary to what Steve Jobs has drilled into your head, Macs are indeed PCs).

1. The best antivirus is common sense
2. The second best antivirus is the free for home use Avast! antivirus

The same people who use macs of OPs reasons are the same people who fall for "kill the monkey and get an ipod" and "install this to view this video" boxes.

Well, it's better than having to update Mac OSX and half the programs not working... and by half I mean 3... you Mac'ers have what, Photoshop, iLife, Doom 1, World of Warcraft, Office/Works, and that puzzle game that's been around since OS 7...

Have you actually seen the price of Leopard? $119.99!

I can get Vista Home Premium with SP1 for $94.99!

There's no "upgrade" option for OSX... you have to buy the FULL version every time.

And there are viri and spy/adware for the Mac. Just not alot of it, because they have a 5% market share (estimate). If Windows didn't have a 90% market share, there would be no reason to make spyware/adware/viri for it!

And for those that say there are no Mac viri, why does this exist??

AVG is free. And Norton and Symantec are the same program. That's like saying Windows and Microsoft are two different operating systems.

EDIT: Troll topic. TOPIC CLOSED.
