Windows 9 - With Windows 8 and now Windows 8.1,
Microsoft tried – not entirely successfully – to make tablets part of a
continuum that goes from number-crunching workstations and high-end
gaming rigs through all-in-one touchscreen media systems and thin-and
light notebooks down to slender touch tablets.
Why do designers prefer a Mac instead of the Windows platform?
Probably it is an old topic but I still need to know. I've read substantial amount of blogs, comparisions and write ups on this topic and most of them says there are no big differences between working on a Mac and working on a Windows based PC. However, as I look for universities and colleges across the US which offers Design degrees, especially Interaction Design and Media Arts, almost all of them ask the student to get their own Mac systems.
