This kind of thinking always amazes me. The competition between OSX and Vista isn’t real, it’s totally fabricated. Msft is and OS company. Apple is a hardware company. It’s as simple as that. You can’t buy OSX to run on your Intel box. You can buy a Mac to run Vista, but you will get OSX included for free. The bean counters at Apple couldn’t care less which OS you run on the machine that makes the company money. Only geeks and marketing types think this is important. Uh….which one are you Scoble?
I’d like to get a group together to debate Windows Vista vs. Mac OSX sometime in January after MacWorld and CES (since Windows Vista ships on January 31st, that’ll be a good time to do it).
I don’t want religious jerks, but I do want advocates, especially ones who can effectively demo their favorite things.
Who is your OS debate “dream team?”
I’ll start the list of potential candidates with Gina Trapani of Life Hacker.
I’d like to end up with three people for each OS. No “Digg commenter attitude.” Just the facts, back and forth, to give people a good mental model of what’s up on each OS and what the strengths and weaknesses of each OS are.
