Watch users sound off on Mac v. PC debate in 1995It's the age-old question: Mac or PC? CNET captured these reactions when the debate was a hot-button issue in the mid-nineties. Watch this archival footage of users sounding off on which platform was better.
Watching CNet, the computer network. On air, on line. Ever wonder what PC users say about Mac users? Are PC better users than Mac users? Well, lets see. Yeah. I didn't know there was that much to think about. About them. I don't know, I don't use a Mac. The others are wimps and I don't think they could read a manual. I think they want their mommy. PC user is more of a serene type. Mac user is kind of a fanatical, wow! Visual kind of person. Macintosh is okay but for me, hey, I like split second response. That's what you get out of DOS. When we return you'll hear the Mac users fight back. Now to hear what Mac users have to say. [INAUDIBLE] And the Mac is one of my most enjoyable things. It works really well and it's easy. You really do get that kinda warm fuzzy feeling from it. I have used a little box and found it very strange. Windows 3.0 was the Mac interface done in crayon. And the 3.1 was a vast improvement, because it was the Mac interface done with felt tip. Stay tuned for more C/NET Central. [MUSIC]
