Computer Training Excuses - No ExcuseYou wouldn't go to a doctor who had never been to medical school, or hire a lawyer who never studied law. One side-effect of a world advancing as rapidly as ours is that fields are becoming more and more specialized and narrow. People can no longer get by on general knowledge in their careers, something I found out for myself not too long ago. I'd been out of high school for two years, scraping by on my own and picking up scraps of programming as I went. I saw all of the self-taught programmers breaking into the IT industry, and I hoped to do the same. After all, IT is one of the few industries out there where being creative and a quick learner is more important than a degree.

Did You Know?

  • Apple, the maker of Macintosh or 'Mac' would quite possibly have made Microsoft non-existent. Quick thinking and sleazy business practice on Bill Gates part didn't let that happen. TechiWarehouse recommended movie: "Pirates of Silicon Valley"

  • In a nationwide survey of 22,000 creative firms, 77% of them planned to purchase Macintosh computers in 1999, outselling both Windows and Windows NT by an astounding margin of over 3 to 1. The research company stated, "Apple continues to dominate the creative markets."

  • Apple in May of 2001 closed the single largest educational sale ever: 23,000 iBooks.

  • The Apple iMac is the best-selling computer in CompUSA's 13-year history.

  • Apple is the #1 computer vendor in Japan.

  • Apple is the #1 computer company in Australia.

  • A business Mac user gets $24,000 more work done per year, his or her computer is down 14% less, and it costs less to support than any other platform.

  • A single NT server service call to Microsoft costs $195. A year of Apple support costs $70.

  • When NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston switched from Mac to Windows, help desk calls grew consistently from 68,000 calls to 142,000 in two years. Ultimately, Congress decided the switchover violated the government's "open procurement" law, but it was too late to switch back.

  • Other than Word macro viruses, there are over 20,000 PC viruses, yet only 40-80 Mac ones. Also, there is no Mac virus that can destroy your hardware. Some PC viruses can zero out the flash BIOS and render the computer totally inoperable.

  • Microsoft admitted on their own website that Windows NT 4.0 has more than 10,000 bugs. (The page has since been removed.) If you don't believe me, take a look at the copy on the box of Cybermedia's First Aid 98. It says "Fixes tens of thousands of Windows problems."

  • Bill Gates' $50 million residence (drafted by Seattle architectural firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson) was designed on Macintosh computers.

  • On the other hand, the high-tech electronics inside Gates' mansion are Windows-based. The first evening at home, his drop-from-the-ceiling bigscreen TV would not shut off -- Gates had to throw a blanket over it to get to sleep.

  • Microsoft doesn't even use (Windows) NT on their own Web site. They use Unix.

  • Bill Gates did not "invent" DOS, the operating system that begat Windows. His company bought code called QDOS ("Quick and Dirty Operating System") and polished it. NOTE: Let me just say now that this fact comes from the best anti-Microsoft website in the world. You should bookmark Boycott Microsoft, and check it out -- it'll amaze and scare you, and embolden you to fight for the Mac.

  • The "Shut Down" command in Windows is located in the "Start" menu. (Then again, we drag our disks to the Trash to eject, what's up with that?)
