    This, the Unix environment makes developing so much easier.

    Honestly, it's down to which OS you prefer.

    Not even in software. OSX fucks up? Grats, reinstall.
    Since when?
    Which part? The hardware is pretty much unrepairable and gets less and less repairable every iteration.

    The operating system is very closed compared to even the standards of Windows, as my admittedy limited understanding has it.

    Is this based on any experience at all, or just a random guess because of iphones?

    People I've known in tech support who have experience of it. I very rarely use Macs and would never buy one.

    I see Zekk knows as much about Macs as he does about Adobe AIR. Good-o.

    I see again people are using my ignorance to point-score, rather than driving the discussion forward.

    My information is based on information given to me by someone I used to work with who previously spent a few years on a mixed site in IT support. He always claimed that the operating system wasn't easily repairable and often times the only recourse was to reinstall. I stated quite clearly my understanding was very limited.

    And I actually do have a lot of experience of hardware repair on them - mostly Macbooks and iPhones, but some iMac.

    Making claims based on "stuff wot my mate sed" isn't exactly driving the discussion forward either. So, please, do tell us just how something like Windows is so much more repairable than OS X.

    Shrug, I trusted his knowledge. I'd no reason not to.

    On Windows you're able to repair the user profiles even down to complete inability to login, most individual services are repairable, I can repair a Windows install that's been near-destroyed by a Winfixer-type virus. From experience it was very rare when I was working that we had to do a reinstall - maybe one repair in twenty. Given how modular BSD is it makes sense that you'd be able to do the same, but I also know how Apple like to keep their systems closed, which even makes sense from a usability standpoint - less things to configure means less things to break. Disregarding that my point about the hardware is correct, although it's the same with any all-in-one and most modern laptops.

    I don't disagree with you on the hardware, Apple tend to push that line more than most, but OS X really isn't any better or worse than Windows when it comes to being able to repair problems.

    I'm not sure I understand what this even means. As for repairing the OS, I don't think I have ever needed to do anything like that.

    If you know how to UNIX, it's easy.

    Mac OS is as open as Windows / Unix. UAC and Mac OS' protection are about as easy to disable.
    Ports is pretty nice if you need anything that doesn't have a native Mac OS dist (not a whole lot of things).
    And I haven't ever seen something as easy as TimeMachine when it comes to restoring my laptop.
    Had old Mac Book, bought new one. Opened new macbook, pointed it to TimeMachine Backup and I had my old system up and running within the hour.

    why
    Cause he is as awesome as I am whispous

    Serious Note: Retina's are working really great, not just because they are apple, they are just a great product atm and I've got many friends and collages who bought the same laptop and are enjoying it. Can't go wrong with this piece of equipment. Rest of apple I don't really care, they aren't THAT special as people sometimes say.
