My non-tech friends who use Microsoft (insert OS here) are always asking me for help with their computer problems, which usually turn out to be serious virus infestations or problematic hardware/driver installs. My non-tech Mac friends generally only ask for help when they can’t figure out how to use third-party software.
I hear Mac users all the time say “I love my Mac!”. I’ve never once heard a Windows user say anything of the kind. There’s a reason for this, and the reason is that Apple’s OS, hardware and integrated software are exceptionally well engineered.
Misinformation is bad. Computer stability and greater productivity are good. Don’t blindly follow the herd. Instead of assuming that the majority is right, find out for yourself. Do your homework, and make an educated choice based on what you discover.
