    I'm so confused by all these mac threads on all the DROID forums. I thought macs were supposed to be so good, you just plugged everything in and "it just works". :icon_ devil:

    macs are good, no need to download any drivers. just plug in and go:icon_ banana:

    rooting is simple, people post step by step commands and you just copy and paste, dont see anything hard about it... mac>* anyday

    Macs do just work. They don't claim to make it easier to root your Droid, install a new rom, and use wifi tethering with it...

    That's because you can run only Apple's crap on them. :biggrin:

    Quite frankly, I can care less what you use. I just know how easy it is to ruffle the feathers of a Crapintosh owner. Pretty sure you guys are all reincarnated Jehovah's Waitresses. :icon_ devil:

    And you pc owners are all in denial about your virus ridden window machines. Does it make you feel better to put down mac owners and lump us all into one category? I hope so. I hope we have helped improve your self esteem tonight! You're a good person, never forget that!

    actually.. i was trying to flash the recovery image and i tried on windows and got a bunch of errors and the stupid drivers wouldnt work, then i tried linux and it was way to complex, and i couldnt figure it out, then i went to osx and it worked perfectly, very easily. i'm just saying, mac even makes adb easier (for me..)
