Nice job Apple, you've successfully convinced me to dump my PC and switch to a Mac, I mean that experience; it's so amazing.

 

How many of you have been convinced to switch because of Yosemite. They even manage to do the minimalistic interface better than Windows 8.

There are still missing essential features in OS X. For example, you can not rename multiple files at once as in Windows. I dumbed my PC as well but I miss some everyday features.

Although Yosemite is a pleasure to use and the UI is very clean and beautiful. I shall still use the ugly Windows 8 because of the application I am using for years. But I also use OS x since mountain Lion. Hence Yosemite is obviously, in.

I was convinced a long time ago, and made the switch about 18 months ago to a Hackintosh, and then swapped to a MacBook Air. Haven't regretted it a bit, and the fact since then new versions of OSX have just been coming out 'for free' is a bonus.. though to be honest they're so good I'd happily pay for them. 

 

Love it. Yosemite looks fantastic - really like the new UI changes they're making so can't wait to try it out.

    Your order is meaningless. My chaos is significant.

What? Batch renaming is built into Yosemite since DP2

Hmm, never knew they added batch rename to Finder. That's cool.

Does that work just as in Windows?

has it convinced me? no, not really. i had now the chance to use nearly anything, a pc with windows, a smartphone with apples ios, a smartphone with several different androids, a tablet with android, ubuntu, a pc with so many linux variants i cant even remember them all, an imac which was a very impressive device ... to look at :ike:

i mean, i get it if you are a beginner or have a job where you have your money and just want a nice gadget at home, most people go with an imac but thats it.

 

all in all, especially over the last 2 years, i just dont wanna skip linux anymore, especially kde. if anyone remembers the times with windows 95 and 98 where you could achieve a lot with just hacking your .ini/inf files, registry infos, and whatever (no one complained there that it was too difficult), i today can do many things like this with linux, mostly even easier i just copy and paste some commands in the terminal and execute them.

 

using a mac is like feeling the good old steve jobs standing behind me shouting "you can't do this" it feels so limited.

I am predominantly a Windows guy, always have been always will be. However, I've had a Mac since 2009 (my '09 Mac mini) and it's been a great little machine to tinker with. It came with Snow Leopard and been updating it to the latest version of OS X ever since. Yosemite is looking very nice, however, I am dubious it'll run (if at all) on my ancient Mac mini. OSX is definetly a good OS and it does alot of things very well but I don't feel it really is "superior" to Windows (nor do I feel Windows is superior to it either). They both have their strengths and weaknesses and personally I equally enjoy using both!

That is unacceptable. You have to pick a side or the whole computer market bubble will implode!

Convinced me to pay thousands of dollars for hardware I can buy elsewhere for less? No.

Apple has shown that controlling both the hardware and software has its benefits.
