I was trying to refrain from posting here (wasted brain cells matter), but since I don't see any "sponsored by" tags, I will eventually do it.
a) Photos -> "Hyper-ultimate-super-duper Technology, Me and Nature", "Me and My Business".
b) Essentials -> Pro Tools an "essential". OMG. Welcome to 2005.
c) Creativity -> Macs for "people who want to be creative".
"I just installed a PC studio on Pro Tools the other day and where it takes one simple installer on a Mac, it took four different intallations and restarts on a PC."
"Installed a PC studio on Pro Tools"! OMG.
"I installed a sequencer called Pro Tools". Better now. A "PC Studio" is something different. It's a setup with the computer in the main spot.
"It takes one simple installer on a Mac"!
"It took four different intallations and restarts on a PC"!
So, you installed Pro Tools on your Mac, and to install the same sequencer on a PC, you had to go through 4 different installations? Well, I must be blind then, because I see only one installer over here.
Despite that, I hope that you understand that your argument is absolutely ridiculous, regarding technicality and creativity.
You also write: "...I guarantee you will have headache upon headache trying to get everything working". Are you on a mission or something? I've had Macs since 1984, up to the latest G5s (just to clarify) and during the last 5 years, I only use them for compatibility reasons (for some clients). I know hundreds of PC users and they had 9 problems with their setups. I also know hundreds of Mac users and they had 0 problems with their setups. But again, I know dozens of Mac users that *do* have problems with their setups and dozens of PC users that find it difficult to adjust their tools to their preferences. It's not the tool, it's the player. If someone has half a brain, hey surprise, it won't work. Something will go wrong and the player will blame the tool. I bet that if we have the same exact Mac setups, my setup will perform better, because I will know how to use it properly. Again, if we take two identical PC setups, you will suffer from the common diseases of the PC world (if Macs were the majority, there would be many more viruses for Mac, if Linux was the desktop OS of choice, the same would happen, yada-yada) and you won't have a well-tuned PC. Mine will beat the fastest Mac, because I know how to use it. That doesn't stop me from being "creative" and I only have to spend a few hours tuning my PC. I could skip the tuning and use it right away too, but hey, it's up to the player.
"With a Mac, you get what you pay for". Right. Hype. That what's you get.
d) Choice of words -> "Ultimate Portable Studio"
Girl, you have no idea about what you're talking about. You present some tools that you find that they work for *you* and you spend $5k for a 7. I will spend half of that for a 9.
Am I the only one who sees a pattern here (M-audio was bought by "guess who" makers of "essential" Pro Tools, Avid has a "special" relationship with "guess who" Mac makers who bought Logic, AKG's distributor blah-blah)?
