I thought I was dreaming when I read that last post.
Better performance under windows? Have you ever used a Mac?
Benchmarks? No where near reality for music.
Im gonna keep my cool on that one.
JBridge is cool, though I prefer Vienna Ensemble Pro

Benchmarks and theories aside, this is real-world performance for you guys.

JBlongz, you need to stop the proselytising and start being objective.... only a convert would be so adamant that one machine type is better than another machine type, with or without the other issues that abound on both sides.
I apologize if I come off that way. I actually push hardware specs more than OS, which I thought I mentioned in this thread. In fact, I wasn't so much market Apple in the video as I showed I have Windows installed. But I was giving an example of where a Core i7 and high RAM count will have its advantages. I know there are mixed needs, and I just aim to tickle the fantasy and ambitions of others. You never know who is looking for a high end solution. I get countless thank you emails for introducing people to Vienna Ensemble among other solutions.
Anyone considered running Linux? Probably not.
That's stable as it get's if you ask me.
So that means if you install Linux on a normal pc, stability arguments get ruled out of the equation.
Anyway, if you buy or build a pc , in the end, you're gonna get best bang for your buck as it'll be a lot cheaper for the same hardware configurations, or better, as the mac will offer. Next to that, you don't have such a wide range of hardware to chose from if you want to buy a mac.
Hey, some ppl swear to macs, they like the Mac OS, etc. If you feel like you want a mac, go ahead, buy it. Gonna cost you slightly more than a pc but it's gonna give you Mac OS.
Just don't believe pcs are worse than macs, they aren't! If I build me a same setup as a mac with a pc setup, it can more or less save me up to 300 to 400 bucks.
Other than that, Win 7 has gone a long way in stability as well. I just don't like the user interface but that's pretty tweakable to an xp look.
If you feel like you'd like to buy a pc, go ahead, try it out.
Technically yes...This was a Windows Maschine before I added a bootable mac disk. But I have some plugins that are Audio Unit only. Ableton Live on mac reads AU and VST.
On another note I get periodic freezing in Windows 7 when under heavy RAM. DAW because unresponsive for up to 30 seconds or so. Never had this problem in OSX. GUI is still buggy, though its much better than Vista. XP is still solid, but support for new software isn't.
People say Windows PC is cheaper....my hardware is the same, but windows costs $150+ and OSX Lion costs $50 Go figure.
