Mac Book Vs Normal Window PC

Post  mabaydar on Mon Mar 16, 2009 11:58 pm

သိခ်င္ေနတာ ေတာ္ေတာ္ၾကာပါျပီ... Apple ကထုတ္တဲ့ Mac Book နဲ႔ က်မတို႔ ခုသံုးေနတဲ့ ရုိးရုိး Window PC ေတြနဲ႔ ဘာကြာပါသလဲ..
ကြာမွန္းေတာ့သိပါတယ္.. အေသးစိတ္သိခ်င္တာပါ..
window ကြာမယ္.. Mac Book က Graphic နဲ႔ပတ္သတ္တာေတြအတြက္ ပိုေကာင္းတယ္ဆိုတာလဲသိတယ္..
ဒါေပမဲ့ software installation ေတြဘာေတြက်ေတာ့ ဘယ္လိုကြာလဲသိခ်င္တယ္..
က်မတို႔ခု သာမာန္သံုးေနတဲ့ software ေတြက Mac Book မွာ install လုပ္ျပီး သံုးလို႔မရဘူးလား..
No clue at all ျဖစ္ေနတယ္.. scratch ဘာလို႔လဲဆိုေတာ့.. အေနာက္နိုင္ငံက လူေတာ္ေတာ္မ်ားမ်ား (မေဗဒါ သိသေလာက္ေပါ့) Mac Book ကို သံုးၾကတာမ်ားပါတယ္..
Mac Book က user friendly မျဖစ္ဘူးဆိုရင္ သူတို႔က ဘာလို႔ တြင္တြင္က်ယ္က်ယ္သံုးေနၾကတာလဲ...
ျပီးေတာ့ Graphic နဲ႔ ပတ္သတ္ျပီး ပိုေကာင္းတယ္ဆိုတာကေရာ.. ဘာေတြ ပိုေကာင္းတာလဲ...

ျဖစ္နိုင္မယ္ဆိုရင္ သိတဲ့သူမ်ား.. ျမန္မာလိုျပန္ရွင္းျပၾကပါ.. google မွာ ရွာလို႔ရပင္မဲ့.. ရွာရတာပ်င္းတာေရာ.. ဖတ္ရမွာ ပ်င္းတာေရာေၾကာင့္ ဒီမွာပဲ အကူအညီေတာင္းလိုက္ပါတယ္.. Very Happy

I have been using a mac for the last month or so now and thought I should compile my experiences so far. To put it in short, a Mac is a great girlfriend, but not wife material. She’s young, beautiful, sexy and fun. But I’m not!!
All Apple communication (and die-hard Apple users) claim that a Mac can do everything Windows can. And they are absolutely right! Especially with the Intel-based Macs which can also run Windows, the case is sealed. The question is how much more of a pain it is to do those day-to-day tasks. So here’s an interim list of niggling (and perhaps some very individual) issues I have been able to compile. I’ve been told by a few that its all a matter of “getting used-to” and I have lived with Windows for too long. However, as you will see from this list, its not about having to find your way around. Its about there being no other way!!
1. No Page Up/Page Down Keys. Requires two keys (fn+Arrow) for the function
2. No (forward) delete Keys. Requires two keys for function (fn + delete, which is really a backspace)
3. No Contextual Menu (Right-Click) Key. Requires control to be depressed.
4. In browser, on a web-page cannot toggle between HTML hyperlinks and other click-able items easily. Firefox in Mac tends to skip hyperlinks and drop-down menus.
5. In browser, when you click in address bar does not select complete url by default. Hence if one needs to type a new URL, have to first delete existing URL.
6. No Home and End keys. Requires two keys for function. Pain when you want to navigate to end of line, etc
7. Fewer keyboard shortcuts in office (e.g. F2 in excel to edit a cell, or to insert Page break in word).
8. Entourage sucks compared to Outlook as a PIM.
9. Rest of MS Office is not that great either
10. I find my MacBook really slow considering its got 2.5Gb RAM. No System Optimisation tools like Defragmanter, disk clean-up etc. I hope its because a Mac doesn’t need them! Mac OS 10.5.2 seems to need around 10GB of space. XP Pro needed around 2GB; around 6 including a lot of the extra programs that Leopard comes with.
11.Huge issues when working on a windows network. Can connect and access files etc alright. However, drops connection when computer goes on standby (sleep), requiring a reboot. Or can’t login to a mobile network account if connected to a different wi-fi network! You didn’t even have to think about all these issues with Windows.
12. No “Print Screen”! Have to tediously use Grab to capture screens.
13. iPhoto sucks when editing pictures compared to Microsoft Picture Manager.
14. Can’t truly “maximise” a window at the click of a button. Have to necessarily drag a window to expand it. The plus button is quite misleading and seems more like a restore button.
So really, what is all that talk about a Mac being more user-friendly than Windows?

I was asked to explain this to someone recently, and decided to post it here.

In my opinion when people think of PCs, they think of frustrating experiences, viruses, blue screens of death, etc. When people think of Macs they either think of glossy shiny things that work well, or if they love PCs, they roll their eyes.

When it comes down to it though, a PC really is a machine capable of running Windows, or a variety of other operating systems such as UNIX, Linux and more as well. PCs, can be built for a fraction of the cost of an Apple machine, and are highly customizable. Hardware can be mixed and matched, and upgraded as well, but in general at a price. Hardware incompatibility issues always arise, for example that 5 year old scanner that worked great with Windows XP, might not be supported in Vista.

The difference with a Mac is that it is capable of running Macintosh OS X, which a generic PC cannot. Modern Macs are also PCs with the ability to potentially run any operating system, including Windows. This is all thanks to the new Intel Core 2 chips they are running on. The downside to a Mac is the price. The lowest priced notebook weighs in around $1,000. But since Apple makes the OS, the hardware, and a good portion of the default software, everything works the second you turn it on.

If we're talking strictly about Windows vs Mac OS X, it is hard to say objectively which one is better. Let's talk about Windows first. It's widely available, in fact it comes pre-installed on about 90% of new computers that are available for sale. It's proprietary software, meaning that the source code can't be viewed or modified by anyone, leaving all updates to Microsoft, the company that makes it. In the past Windows has gotten a really bad rap for being insecure, catching viruses, crashing, and in general making a crummy experience for the end user. Windows Vista, the newest version of it improves on quite a bit of these previous issues, it's more secure, less likely to crash, has a much nicer looking interface, and in general is an all around pleasant experience. One of the downsides however is that there are at least 6 versions of Windows Vista, Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, Server and more. Features vary from OS to OS, and because it is designed to run on a seemingly infinite number of configurations and systems, hardware incompatibility issues continue to arise for it. The one major upside to Windows however is that you can probably find any application you need for it, since around 90% of machines run some flavor of it, there is much more of an incentive for developers to write apps for it.

Macs have this new reputation for just working, and with good reason. The Mac OS X is built off of UNIX, an operating system that has been around for over a decade. The core of it, it's kernel, is open source, which means anyone is free to copy, distribute and modify the source code. This means anyone, not just Apple can tinker with this code and find bugs and fix them. The rest of the OS is however proprietary. But with that solid foundation of UNIX you find that the operating system will rarely lock up, and in general will work fairly well. Applications however are only as good as their programmer and can crash just as frequently as their Windows friends. Macs in general also have that extra "polish" which can be attributed to the design of both the hardware and graphics in the interface. Apple even has a "human interface guideline" which describes to developers how to make applications according to a standard that are both intuitive to the user and attractive to the eye (it's also the reason that you will see icons for applications that resemble what they do, such as a CD+music note for iTunes, a photo+camera for iPhoto, a speech bubble for ichat, a calender for ical, an inkwell and pen for Pages, etc. Think about the difference on windows, what are the icons for Office? a W for word? an X for excel?) It should also be noted that there are only two current versions of OS X, OS X (currently Leopard) and OS X Server. The other think about a Mac is that when you turn a new one on for the first time it has a music application, photo management application, music creation applications, video editing, calender, mail, and a browser. Many people are also unaware that on the disc that ships with every new mac are the XCode developers tools, which is what Mac developers use to create the applications that run on the system, on the Windows side, a similar package costs around $1500. Granted the average person can't develop applications, but the tools are there should you ever decide to learn how. The major downside to OS X though is the fact that it only has around 8-10% market share, meaning that a lot of specialized software is simply not available for it. But for most people what comes on the machine alone is enough for what they need to do.

I shouldn't leave out the other major OS, Linux. Linux is a free an open source operating system that will run on both mac and PC hardware alike, and has also been adopted for use in many major electronics such as HDTVs, Tivos and more. There has recently been a big increase in momentum and support behind it now that different versions of it are just as easy or easier to use then Windows. Linux also has the advantage of being able to run on older hardware, and is a less vulnerable target for viruses and malware then Windows. Currently the most popular version is called Ubuntu, and it's slogan is "Linux for Humans". Linux also powers the computers that are being manufactured for the one laptop per child program.

ကြ်န္ေတာ့္ရံုးက မန္ေနဂ်ာကေတာ့ ပန္းသီးခေရဇီဗ်။ ပန္းသီးလက္ပ္ေတာ့နဲ႔ အိုင္ဖုန္းနဲ႔ ဟုတ္ေနတာ။ သူ႔ရဲ႔အျမင္ကေတာ့ ပန္းသီးဟာ

၁။ စတိုင္က်တယ္ ပါးပါးေလး
၂။ User friendly ျဖစ္တယ္
၃။ ၀င္းဒိုးစ္ေတြလို လံုျခံဳေရးျပသနာမရွိဘူး
ဆိုလိုတာက စပိုင္၀ဲလ္ေတြ၊ ဗိုင္းရပ္စ္ေတြ ကိုႏွိမ္နင္းေနစရာမလိုဘူးတဲ့။

ဒါေပမယ့္ကြ်န္ေတာ့္အတြက္ကေတာ့

၁။ စတိုင္လ္က်ျပီး ပါးတာေတာ့ၾကိဳက္တယ္
၂။ သူတို႔လိုသံုးေနၾကသူေတြေတာ့မသိဘူး ကြ်န္ေတာ္ကေတာ့ ဘယ္ကစသံုးရမွန္းမသိ ဒါေၾကာင့္ ကြ်န္ေတာ့္အတြက္ user friendly မျဖစ္ပါ
၃။ လံုျခံဳေရးအရေကာင္းေပမယ့္ ၀င္းဒိုးစ္လို ၾကိဳက္ရာေဆာ့တ္၀ဲလ္ တင္လို႔မရ၊ driver ရွာရနဲ႔ ကန္႔သတ္ခ်က္ေတြတစ္အားမ်ားတယ္လို႔ထင္တယ္။
၄။ ေနာက္တစ္ခုက ေစ်းၾကီးတယ္ဗ်..အဟီး

ဒါကြ်န္ေတာ့္အျမင္ပါ....
