Windows 95 Beats Mac
Over the years, there has been much argument over which
computer platform to buy. The two contenders in theis competions
have been the PC , with its Windows environment and the
Macintosh. Now, with the successful release of Windows 95 for the
PC, this has been the mjor argument for each side : hardware
configuration, networking capabilities, and operating system.
The first arguments to look at between the Pc and Mac
platform has to do with hardware configuration. Before Windows
95, installing and configuring hardware was like pulling teeth.
The instructions given to help install hardware were too
complicated for the average user. There was also the issuer of
compatibility between the large number of different hardware
setups available in the PC world. Is a particular board going to
work with my PC? With Windows 95, these problems were alleviated
with plug and play technology. With plug and play compatible
boards, the computer detects and configures the new board
automatically. The operating system may recognize some hardware
components on older PCs. Mac userw will claim that they always
had the convenicnce of a plug and play system, ubt the difference
shows in teh flexibility of the two systems.
Another set of arguments Mac users use in favor of their
sysstems over PCs is in multimedia and networking capabilities.
Mac users gloat that the Mac has networking technology built in
the system. Even if a user did not use it, the network is
included with the system. They cited that for the PC users and Pc
users hate the fact that they need to stick a card in their
computers to communicate with any other computer. With Windows
95, the Mac network gloaters are silenced. Windows 95 included
built-in network support. Any network will work properly. The Mac
users also claim their systems have speech, telephony, and voice
recognition, whereas the Pc user does not have. In truth, the
promised building blocks for telephony control do not yet exist.
I think the speech is not good point in the Mac.
In the world of computer, people cannot stand still for too
long without getting passed by. Windows 95 now threatens the only
assets the Mac has in capturing the interests of the consumers
because of configuration in the hardware, communication
betweencomputers and difference of operating systems in both
platforms. Almost any argument could give in defense of the Mac
does not carry nearly as much bite as it did before Windows 95
arrived. Pc users have something to be proud of.
