I should have known when I saw that this dopey review was by a dude who promotes his MSCE training as if it were a good thing. And a DeVry graduate to boot.
“So is the mini a maxi value? For me, clearly, no. When I consider that a good deal of my time is spent running applications like Disk Defragmenter, Scandisk, Norton AV, Windows Update and Ad-Aware–none of which are available for the Mac platform”
ok let’s break this down:
- Disk Defragmenter – OS X auto defragments files 20mb and smaller.
- Scandisk – Disk Utility
- Norton AV – We don’t have viruses you dope
- Windows Update – Software Update, I know, it’s tough for a MSCE to grassp, but it’s under that Aqua Apple menu thingy, they did teach you about menus at DeVry, right>
- Ad-Aware – We don’t have spyware
Virex exists and if we do get some form of spyware, something will be written to handle it.
He also noted that Safari is “not standards compliant” because it did not render MSN properly. So I ran MSN through the w3c validator, you know, those people that write the standards, and the HTML source for www.msn.com failed the test. Imagine that.
The quote that shows just how much of a moron this guy is:
“The Mini boots up into a stripped-down operating system which Apple calls OS X, similar to the stripped-down WindowsCE OS found on many handhelds.” I guess FreeBSD Unix should be compared to stripped down Windows CE. Hahaha. Excuse me one second, kind reader. I need to pick my ass off the floor. Hahaha.
Talk about discrediting anything this guy ever writes again. Of course, if the site really is satirical, the average reader would not know that, so this retort is in like mind, satirical.
