Mac or PC? Actually, I don’t believe that it really makes much of a difference, as long as you know what you’re doing with what you have. But that’s not the point of this post. I just ran across a bit of information that struck me as interesting.
According to NetMarketShare, which seems to produce reliable numbers, MAC OS makes up a mere 5.26% of the total market share of operating systems, compared to 91.23% for Windows. That seemed a little bit low to me, so I checked the stats on a couple of websites that I’ve built, and I’ve found that MAC tends to represent about 8-10% of the visits on most of them.
This site, however, is different. This month, so far, 28.5% of the visitors are MAC users, and last month, a full 29.6%. OK, so it’s just confirmation of what we already know… photographers (and other visual artists) disproportionately prefer MAC, although the vast majority are still using PCs. Still, I didn’t expect there to be such a strong showing for Macs on a blog like this, so I thought I’d mention it.
And of course, this post gives everyone a good excuse to tell me how much they love their Mac, as Mac people are so zealous to do :) I learned Photoshop on Mac originally, but have used a PC most of the time for the past 10 years.
