Re: Apple vs Windows?

would definitely agree about the time to figure out another OS.
I was recently looking to possibly get away from windows, as I am not happy with the way it is going with all these ribbon menus and so on, so thought about going the mac rout. only to find, that unlike windows, one can't even do the basics with out knowing a good few 3 key plus combinations. so would say that there is a lot more to have to spend time figuring out with the mac, to do anything at all with it, where as windows is certainly a bit easier from that point.

as for the mobile side of things, I use both iPhone and android, and would say that once one is used to using a touch screen, that is a good half the battle. over all, I probably prefer the iPhone, but do prefer the android as a media device, as getting stuff on and off of it is a lot easier, as it can be done with standard windows explorer, rather than the messing about with iTunes, to get stuff on or off of the iPhone.

I'm not sure there is an answer. for the typical user, I doubt there is a meaningful advantage one way or the other. I won't use Apple computers because I know Windows and it isn't worth my time and effort learning another operating system when I am already very profficient in one.

there may be some specific uses that are better dealt with in apple computers and some in Windows but I don't think, as I said, that for the typical user, it matters.

Then there is the cost of Apple computers. You pay a lot more.

I won't comment on mobile devices. I haven't used smart mobile devices.

For those who have both, or experience with both Systems, Which has the
better support when it comes to over all Accessibility?

Not trying to start World War 8, but I keep noticing lots of articles
and pod casts explaining Apple Accessibility features. this would cover
the Apple Mac, the I-Pad, and the I-Phone.

I don't own an Apple products, but am open to it. With what seems to be
an increase in articles, over the last year or two, it just had me
wondering how good are the Apple products?

I find all the Operating Systems to be lacking when it comes to
Accessibility. Seems like we move ahead one or two steps, then take a
step or two back.

I personally use Windows and Android. have yet to own anything Apple.
