A computer desktop should be light and compact in foot print allowing max performance from computer. No extra themes for me, just standard is fine.

Must be why you use MSN and ICQ as separate apps instead of using a lighter merged app like MirandaIM...

I dont use third rate programes

van
13-03-05, 12:09 PM
What's third rate about them? I'm not a hardcore computer user so I wouldn't know as much as you. However, I experience no errors with Miranda, it performs every task I need to perform, it's light weight and does the job it's intended to do. Where does "third rate" come into it?

ICQ and MSN are third rate programs if you ask me. Bloated over-featured pieces of shit with little more than mildly entertaining options intended to impress the average moron.

Jing
13-03-05, 12:22 PM
why are supra owners always so sensitive :p

Its cool mate, u got a cool car, u have a cool desktop, u can draw cool. Chill

van
13-03-05, 12:31 PM
Sensitive? I asked you a question, wouldn't kill you to answer it. These are how discussions work you see. What's third rate about Miranda?

Jing
13-03-05, 12:35 PM
Ok la van if u are so insistent for an answer i will give u one

1st under no cirumstances is my first message pointed to u

2nd working in the computing industry i understand the differnet personal preferences people have, im stating my preferences loud and clear, u dont like it fark off

3rd miranda? To give u a bigger clue, i dont usually use icq, i only use the SMS functions of ICQ, so usually icq is off, 2 apps problems solved

4th in computers comptability is a big problem third rate programes dont mean they are shit quality, the meaning behind it is that the are not main streme programes.

If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact me

van
13-03-05, 12:58 PM
See, I wasn't being insistent. Your answers and reasons are fine, but all you did in the first place was call it third rate, and then not bother to say why. I didn't realise that by seeking more info it would mean that I was being sensitive and insistent. Obviously we don't share the same concept on the definition of a conversation.

Nice, mind if I ask where you get your brushes from? Or any other sites for good brushes?

Thanks :)

They're vectors actually, and often referred to as "flourishes" among other things. Not sure where these ones are from, a good buddy of mine sent them to me. I'll ask if he minds me sharing them, and if he doesn't mind, I'll upload them for you :)

The Zune theme!

I've been using a Mac for the past week, and frankly it's not blowing me away. And I say that as a designer, getting the maximum potential out of this machine! They're damn good, but I don't feel like I'm getting any more or less out of this than I get out of my PC at home.

Mr. Grim Reaper

Really?! Huh, strange. Every other designer I’ve spoken to has urged me to get a Mac, saying how much better it is. That’s good to keep in mind.

Depends on the level of work you do. If you're a highend print designer running massive files running into the hundreds of megabytes, or a 3D developer working on a massive video, then a Mac Pro - not an iMac, believe you me - is certainly a good choice. If you're a web designer, or a print designer who rarely does anything more than identities, flyers, brochures, etc (even posters. I do posters on my PC and it's perfectly fine, and my PC isn't even a monster), then there's no reason under the sun why a PC won't do the job, and do it wonderfully.

People say PCs are less stable. I've always been curious about that one. I've had my HP PC for nearly 3 years, and I've had one "blue screen of death" in that time. The Adobe suite? Heck, I can't put my finger on the last time it crashed or stalled, it was that long ago. Illustrator crashed on this Mac yesterday, three times.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Mac. I think it's a great system, and it does a lot of things better than the PC. But if you're a responsible computer user, the PC is more than fine. If you require award-winning aesthetics, then yeah the Mac is the computer to choose. It's damn gorgeous to look at. But anyone who tells you that a Mac is the only choice is having a lend of themselves. I'm telling you this as someone who's spent a week doing design on this Mac, and a lifetime on a PC. Am I biased? Sure, but it's a bias based on experience. I can't help that the outcome is what it is!

nam
23-02-07, 11:11 AM
^^ I agree

I'm a print designer at a retail level - ie: I receive shoddy designs from customer using word and make them press ready.

I use Macs at Tafe and I love them.
The way they work, it just seems to make more sense.. I don't know how to explain it but I would love to have a Mac.

I'm forced to use PC's though - all clients use PC's so we just have to be compatible. Which is a shame.

Anyway, on with the desktops!
This ain't a PC vs MAC thread hehe.

crashes on a system is usually 90% caused by user incompetence as harsh as that sounds.

If you know how to use your system there is very little chance of anything going wrong, apart from hardware.

macs are great, i purchased a macbook and the packaging and the image it gave me as i unwrapped it is second to none. However my praise for the mac stops there pretty much. You cant help but feel it was the bling bling of a computer. Beyond all those fancy graphic effects that is in OSX "and actually in vista now" is just a deterence. If you are real hardcore i find that the sparten enviroment of windows 2000 to be much more effective. Maybe not as good looking but faster and more responsive. This also has nothing to do with actual computer speed as a window minimising and maximising will feel slower to a window which just disspears.

OSX does have the great aqua though, everything just looks so well rendered using OSX. But apart from this i find apple's abit of a show pony in most regards *which is fine too if you like good looking computing*
