Say what you want about Apple, but macOS just looks better than other operating systems.

>> No.63318654

best backgrounds of any OS

>> No.63318664

Technically speaking, yes. Windows is at the bottom of the pile for operating systems.

>just looks better than other operating systems.
While that's strictly a matter of opinion, I'll give you that much, because it absolutely sucks balls at everything else.

>> No.63318724

You can make KDE look pretty much exactly as macOS.
But out of the box yes, it's the best by far.

At what macosx sucks? Give me few examples.

Inb4 you can't

>looks better

Even though I like the way macOS looks, that's just an opinion that varies from person to person.

>> No.63318788

not that anon, but in all honesty macOS is breddy gud. It looks good, runs fast and it's UNIX-based, which means it's not a massive pain in the ass to use like Windows. The biggest downside is lack of customization.
That, and it runs on shit hardware, but it's not a problem with macOS.

And that it's filesystem is completely retarded, as are the permissions and shortcuts. Also, it's not Linux.

>> No.63318864

I'd use it but I need some software compatibility that I cannot get there. Hackintosh on my system is perfectly functional if I use the integrated sound card.

>> No.63318887

>as are the permissions and shortcuts
Which... work the same way?

>Also, it's not Linux
What kind of argument is that

>> No.63318998

>The biggest downside is lack of customization

What would you wish to customize? This isn't Windows, its a lot more customizable than you think.

>> No.63319006

The quick launch bar thing is an ugly, distracting waste of space.

>> No.63319337

Well, Windows has visual themes. That's just fiddling with 3 system files.

macOS doesn't really have much of an option that doesn't require disabling SIP. Also, many options for customization are paid, like uBar. Winrefugee? Better spend 20 dollars on something that can help you with the transition. Also the system fonts replacements out there are really shoddy and there are only like 3.

On non 'retina' displays macos looks like a blurry mess.

That goes for every OS. Low DPI monitors, which are plentiful and cheap, just suck in general.

literally only 13 year old autistic or manchildren care about this.

like why do you even see your desktop wallpaper? I have a 100 windows open in every monitor..

You can LITERALLY use ANY background on ANY OS which supports a graphical desktop environment.

It is just full of bloat, such as window borders, bars, docks, etc..

Even worse, desu.

I own a 27" iMac , fucktard. I was just like you, until I took the blinders off. I was using Macs from the first PowerPc days until roughly 2013-14. I was also using Linux at the time and never took it seriously until the kernel started improving greatly roughly around the Ubuntu 12.04 era. Mac Os has nothing to offer.

You read it here first guys, this post renders OP's statement valueless.

This is so irrelevant...
MacOS just as all other OS:es this will look dated before you know it.

And all the reasons for using Apples products are subjective.
That is why MacOS will always be the second choice of OS behind Windows in a work enviroment.
A Camaro is a good looking car that feels really good to drive and it sound really nice when you rev it. but no company in their right mind will buy a Camaro to do a Pickup trucks job!

Mac is for feeling good and bragging, while windows (And Linux on the server side at least) is for working and moving the industry forward.

All talk about a nice ui falls flat when your OS cant handle mass deployment without third party software.

Every comment about how nice your computer feels to the touch is ignored when you have to pay double for half the capability

It doesent matter how nice your cortina screen looks when staingate hits.

Mac is for personal use only, thats what apple wants and pushes for.

Therefore Macs are the Mustangs of the world... They look good, alot of people use them but if all of them vanished tomorrow nothing would be lost... there is nothing that a mac can do that Windows or any *nix could do or improve

lol its a picture of a wallpaper with no icons on the desktop. Wow, a picture of a picture. so elegant.

Where mac really suffers is functionality. Finder is a piece of shit that hasnt evolved in over a decade, besides that color tagging system.
