That’s it, the world is dead to meInvader GIR – 2014-09-14 13:57:43-0400+Keith I Myers Welcome to the club.Chris Miller – 2014-09-14 14:01:04-0400+Keith I Myers Thanks for the new friend recommendations! 😛
One of these days I should stop bashing you for your choice in Phone Operating systems. Since you did technically help me get google glass. 🙂Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 14:08:46-0400LOL it’s not a desktop. It’s a Macbook Pro. Name one better laptop for video editing?Invader GIR – 2014-09-14 14:18:17-0400+Kevin Nether Anything. Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 14:28:52-0400+dank moo right. Keep thinking that buddy. The best Windows laptop is a mac running boot camp. Not even my quote. Adam Outler – 2014-09-14 14:30:11-0400+Kevin Nether that’s just plain false. Also, why not switch to Linux?Invader GIR – 2014-09-14 14:30:53-0400+Kevin Nether Yes, a best windows laptop, keyword windows.Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 14:31:43-0400And let’s leave price out of it. People like to say it’s over priced. But what does it matter if it’s not your money. If I drop 3 grand on a laptop let me. I’m not staving out here. Plus for what I do. There’s nothing out there for me but this. I spend 90% of my day in Adobe creative suite. Chris Miller – 2014-09-14 14:31:46-0400Windows is still a thing?Invader GIR – 2014-09-14 14:33:03-0400+Chris Miller SomehowKeith I Myers – 2014-09-14 14:35:59-0400+Kevin Nether – hm… that is the same set of arguments commonly used by #isheep Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 14:55:13-0400+Keith I Myers
That’s fine. I’m not a sheep, that’s why I buy the best tool for what I do. Hence, why I’ve own android devices since ’08. It the iPhone is able to do what Android does and better, I’ll get an iPhone. Since it does not, I don’t get one. Simple.
And a few years from now if there is a windows laptop that does more than my mbp, and some how windows 9 is magically stable and it looks better. Then i’ll get that. it’s simple. Hell even if chrome os finds a way to run adobe creative suite perfectly (which wont happen anytime soon) Then i’ll be there. No fanboy ish here. I love android because its the best .That does not mean it wont be the best 5-10 years from now.Keith I Myers – 2014-09-14 16:45:32-0400Adding +Joseph Hindy to this list. He has been making a lot of Apple posts lately (Cider and an Apple Spice Cake)Joseph Hindy – 2014-09-14 16:50:07-0400+Keith I Myers if you gave me anything Apple right now I’d bake, eat it, or drink it.
Wait what are we talking about? Keith I Myers – 2014-09-14 17:12:50-0400+Joseph Hindy …. you would eat an iPhone?Daniel Goller – 2014-09-14 17:24:33-0400It’s easier to talk about how both things compare if one actually tried both.Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 19:44:47-0400+Adam Outler
Does adobe creative suite run on Linux? Also can I run Civ 5 on Linux?Adam Outler – 2014-09-14 19:53:45-0400+Kevin Nether a keyboard with built-in macros will let you do everything you need in kdenlive instead of creative suite. Civilization 5 is in Linux.Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 19:57:31-0400+Adam Outler Come on Adam, we both know kdenlive can’t even come close to adobe creative. I shoot documentaries and also I do animation videos, with track motion, stabilization, audio background footprint mapping, and all sorts of stuff that you need professional software to do. I also prefer the hardware of the Macbook and the touchpad. This uni-body design is top notch, and you can’t even argue that.Adam Outler – 2014-09-14 20:53:36-0400Kevin, that’s what I thought too. Then I got macros on the keyboard for cut-at-mouse, remove-space-at-mouse, and delete-clip-at-mouse. It entirely changed the UI. I’m not sue how to track motion though. I have just found that these macros are absolutely a godsend for kdenlive.Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 20:54:52-0400+Adam Outler good to know if I ever look that way again. But a few years back I couldn’t even come close to what I could do with ae. Daniel Goller – 2014-09-14 20:58:34-0400The track pad on a MacBook pro is second to none.
Our IT guy walked in to work, and him being a windows guy who also took care of our linux machines, I asked him why he carried a macbook, “because I need a stable machine that let’s me get work done, and the track pad also helps me getting work done”
He is right, they make fine machines to get work done (not upgradable, expensive machines), without the hassles of windows.
Linux is great, but there is still stuff you won’t get done in Linux as easy as on other operating systems.
A lot of android development happens on Macs, for me because the OS gets out of my way and just works.Kevin Nether – 2014-09-14 22:19:19-0400+Daniel Goller
is speaking the truth. Thanks man for being honest, lol.
