Macs are a crashing all over the place!

What would you rather, a Windows PC that runs for weeks without crashing (like mine do, indeed I’ve not rebooted my XP MCE PVR box for about 6 weeks now, and that then was only because of a critical systems update), or a Mac that crashes every other day?

Lets ask some high profile Mac users, like Dave Winer: “Good question. The answer is that computers crash, even Macs. In my experience, they [Macs] crash more than Windows machines.”, or even Robert Scoble:”Last week on the way home from Montana Ryanne was editing her video on her Mac. The app just suddenly disappeared from screen. In my book that?ɬ¢?¢‚Äö¬¨?¢‚Äû¬¢s called a crash. I found that to be very strange cause the hype on Macs is that they never crash. But, those commercials are so strong. The hype is so strong.”

Now sure, PC’s aren’t perfect, particularly when you run Thunderbird on them, but’s it’s just nice to sit here and watch Mac users noting that the hype isn’t all its cracked up to be 🙂
