You may be more up on newsy items than I, but just in case you're not — I really enjoyed an article I read today. It was about a security company that has recently switched from PCs to Macs (causing quit an uproar I guess). Now farbeitfrom me to start a flame war. That's not the point here. We have 1 PC and 3 Macs at our house. I have been quite amazed though at what it has taken to keep the PC cleaned up. I've never had to work that hard with my Macs (having used them for about 13 years).
I have two teenage boys that like to surf music and gaming sites. Because of this, we have a tendency to pick up hitchhikers (well, till I figured out how to block and clean them). Both my parents own PCs and neither can figure out how to do even the most basic maintenance. That alone should be a good reason for them to just buy a Mac and be done with it. But I guess they believe that since everyone else owns a PC, they should too.
Anyway, give this installment of the Mad As Hell series a read and see what you think… I liked it. Especially coming from a security company … and mirroring my experience of being a “Ma and Pa” user of the PC. They make some good points.
