Macs are good for artistic endevours, now unless any of you are in pursuit of a musical or artistic career, I don't give a **** about your one-sided arguments. If, however, you are in pursuit of that sort of career, and wish to speak against Mac, go ahead. I'm typing from a windows computer.

I really don't get this reason, I heard it a lot , but how is it for artistic reasons if most of BETTER programs you use for editing , programing and 3D modeling are made by companies that are not Microsoft nor Apple.

I don't think anyone who wants to make a decent video would use IMovie over Sony Vegas for example.

I haven't used Sony Vegas yet, but I have heard very good things about it. Watching some of the videos with it seems a little complex and tedious. Whereas IMovie is a little too simple, I guess it depends on the level you wish to edit at.

Imovie is simple, so is Windows Movie Maker, they're basic video editors

which means they're very limited (sorry I clicked reply too soon)

Macs are not any better at artistic endevours than PCs, Windows based atleast (Linux does have a little trouble with some software that usually needs to be run through an emulator). In some areas of art, like 3D art, PC workstations will hold an advantage as they are not limited in GPU options and case size limits as well as robust heat dispersion either through many fans or liquid cooling.

Wine Is Not an Emulator

True, true. I guess it depends on what software you use for the art. Why doesn't anyone ever make a hybrid of the two? Or would that be too ******* complicated.

That'd be ******* retarded for both sides. Although if someone really wanted to have a bit of power when doing 'Mac' stuff, then they could simply custom build a PC then simply Hackintosh the Mac OS onto it... Of course you'd run into a few problems with the GPU most likely and the OS wouldn't work on any AMD based CPU

Well shee-it.

Don't even let me mention how much easier it is to work with high bitrate music when having the extra oomph of a well spec'd PC is... Of course don't do what I accidently did and encode your music into 24,900 kbps WAV's.
