It’s a classic debate.
PC or Mac?
A few years ago I was a Windows user. There were several reasons why I refrained from jumping over, but then finally it happened.
Now I know what all those people meant when they would say they would never switch back. PC vs Mac, it’s a classic debate:
PC or Mac?
I followed through this flowchart, below, and found myself landing on a Mac, so according to this chart, I’m using the right OS. That being said, the major points covered in this flowchart were not really the contributing factors in my decision.
How I Decided
Back in college I worked at a used video game store. I remember parents coming in looking like deer in headlights.
So. Many. Systems.
The number one question I got from parents was which system they should purchase for their kids for Christmas or birthdays. I would proceed to explain to them that it ultimately came down to titles. There are those games that cross-over both sides, but it’s those few system specific titles that really separates the systems.
This is what ultimately turned the tide for me. There were more and more system specific apps that I wanted/needed to use. Sure, there are those that run on both systems, but it came down to what I wanted to do with my computing.

How did it turn out for you?
I wouldn’t use this flowchart to make a purchase decision or anything, but it does begin to think about what you want to do with your computer and which system makes the most sense to you.
Mac or PC?
Of course, they neglect to through in any Open Source options, but then again, if you’re in the market for Ubuntu or some other flavor, you’re in a league of your own. 😉
