Why I use a Mac

From HackerNews , an answer to a common question my friends ask me — “Why do I use a Mac”?:

So the point of all this is that for a product that has been tested, debugged, and gone through all levels of Dante’s circles and back before being released, Windows is just not good enough. It seems like its so close. You just start to like it, and then it does something weird again. Its like an old friend of mine. She drinks and can be really raucous. But she’s a great person but has off moments. Its like hanging out with her on a good day and everything seems awesome, and then she randomly punches a cop. You kind of expect it, but you let your guard down for a minute and then wham, you get reminded again.

So in the end, I just fell for Mac because she’s really my type of girl. We fit well together. Windows is really pretty, and we have some good times, but she’s just not the one. We’ll still be friends, but that’s all we can ever be.

I agree with most parts of it; although I must say that Snow Leopard has crashed(i.e. with a gray version of the Windows BSOD) on me twice so far, and seems to get laggy on me while multitasking, so it seems nobody’s perfect. But in the end, I feel less stupid when I’m using a Mac — that’s how simple the explanation is.
