Computer problems get in the way of getting my work done but I am fortunate enough to hardly ever have them, whether with my MS or my apple computers. I spend more time waiting for projects to render, than dealing with actual hardware or software problems. I will say that I appreciate the simplicity of the apple computers I use. I freely admit that apple computers don't offer their users as much choice in hardware or software (or price)... but limiting your choice also limits the amount of problems that can occur, IMO.
As someone who spends so much time on a computer for a variety of professional activities... I have to say that projects involving the internet and web page design have come to be annoying and mundane for me. Web pages are a never ending chore where all you do is finish for the day, and then spend your free time trying to develop more content to post the next time. I view building web pages as akin to washing dishes. The only thing I really enjoy personally getting on the internet for, is sites such as these forums, that allow for some interaction with other people. I can understand why social networks have come to dominate the web as one of its dominant activities. On the other hand, I find jobs involving photography and video editing/production the most fulfilling. I think it is because I feel I am producing a project with a direction and definable goal.
