Many designers and/or hipsters like the Mac, but I in an emphasis do not understand why. The funny thing is that eventually they run on it Windows on a virtual machine to run different programs Korela and xary. IMHO better just to put Windows and steam.
I bought a Mac mini two months ago. Put 8 GB of RAM. I'm not znaku how Mac manages athirat all the RAM, but he does it. At work I have a Linux comp as a whole are weaker and 4GB RAM, running on Linux faster and RAM not litter. And home previous computer had only 2GB of RAM and so not being stupid. On the face of a memory leak. In General I just do not ispytyval special joy from the Mac, but thought maybe need to get used to get used. It's been 2 months and I'm still not used to their keyboard shortcuts. To me they seem extremely inconvenient and illogical.
As a substitute of Windows or Linux too does not roll. Not enough clouds Windows program, games are very few and the Linux ports are incomplete. First lacking heaps of standard Linux programs (I need for web development), and secondly, no standard package Manager (there are all sorts of third-party type homebrew and macports, but they are no match for apt-get).
With drivers things are a little better than in Linux, but a hundred times worse than in Windows. Navigation in the Explorer is not easy. Tax Manager (Activity manager) does not correctly show the number otheremail memory. For example, I have employed 7.8 GB, browser + flash pokazyvaet together otzhirayut 1.5 GB. I leave the browser, then I released 3Gb. In General a lot of different things in General, want to break the keyboard.
But again at work we have a bunch of designers sitting at Macs, rejoice and arrogantly look at the open.
I'm going to put Linux for web development and Windows for everything else.
If you are a designer and hipster, then take the Mac, if not better than Windows or Linux. For designers of course Linux is not an option.
