I managed a design agency for 15 years and worked on high level campaigns as an interactive programmer before I was the carbonLORD. (well, while I was becoming the carbonLORD)
Guess what equipment we worked on?
Windows can keep the virus scans and other dodgy aspects that would have and continue to hinder production.
Now, if I were an investment banker or something else in my previous life, that might be different.
The minute I installed VM ware or Parrallels resulted in having to wipe clean an entire system within the month.
That is why I will not be conned into spending more time and money to maintain a PC. Unless Windows 8, or Vista or whatever they have actually functions at the same level as a Mac now? But I doubt it.
Last time I attempted to hook up a PCE-1 to a PC, we spent more time trying to figure out why the drivers didn't work and had to source a machine running XP, again wasting more time troubleshooting then actually managing a simple firmware update.
Your Samsung device is a copy of a product Apple brought to the industry FCOL. And lets face it the entire world of mobile Apps and Mobile OS was created by Apple.
Perhaps they do it better now, but my experience with the PC world has always proven otherwise and for the 1 or 2 times a year I might actually need to hook up a computer to my bike is not compelling enough to give it another go.
It's time to realize Apple is only going to grow. It's not 1994 where Apple stocks are $14 a share with no iPhone in sight. I think it might be time for Shimano to hire an iOS engineer and get with the times.
Then they can make a mobile app for your Sammy-phone-tablet-copy-of-an-iPad too.
Okay, my comment was meant as a joke--I prefer windows/android, but i also use/like macs. I would just let your comments go, but now your just stating things that are either just plain wrong or are misleading.
1) I am typing this on a Nexus 7 from 2012. It was designed by Google and produced by Asus--not Samsung.
2) If you upgraded to ios7 on an iDevice, you will have noticed that apple changed how you change apps. Just so you know, it is almost an identical copy of androids multitasking system....
3) My final point: The Nexus 7 I have is a mid size tablet--a comparable apple product is the IPad mini. The iPad mini was released way back in November 2012. The Nexus 7 was released in July of the same year. Who's copying who?
I don't deny that apple makes great stuff, or that there stuff is easy to use. However, if your goal is to buy a computer that works with the widest range of hardware/software you have to look at pcs---that's just a fact.
