Why Does Windows Still Suck?

posted by DL Byron on February 05, 2005

Writing a passionate article for the San Francisco Gate, Mark Morford asks, "Why Does Windows Still Suck? Why do PC users put up with so many viruses and worms? Why isn't everyone on a Mac?" Mark asserts that there is a better way to compute and is puzzled as to why hordes of consumer aren't revolting in the streets, or the Redmond campus, over Windows. Well, consumers don't usually picket your store or campus, they just go somewhere else and I think there's a quiet revolution going on. I've switched, my developer friends have switched, Apple's retail stores are full, the Mac Mini is selling out, and Apple's brand is stronger than ever.

More people are switching because they're just tired of Windows and realize there has to be a better way. This isn't about Mac v PC any longer, but a product that's broken vs one that works. As my latest friend to switch said, "I don't care if it's Windows, Mac, Linux, or Joe Bob's OS, I just want it to work, not crash, and not continously need security updates." Right on. I can't disagree with that.
