Is anyone on RLC running anything other than Windows on their computers? I've seen a lot of ASUS machines, (which run Linux distros quite well, incidentally) but I don't recall any Apple stuff except for phones and tablets. Just wondering...

I doubt there is any brand loyalty, or subconscious advertizing. Most there are broke, so the cheapest works best for them.

Here (USA) ASUS, Apple, all of the cheapest imported junk. Apple may make a good platform, but they need a good hardware manufacturer. As for ASUS, even the public school system won't buy that junk.

If my state's Department of Education buys it, I know it's time to run away...  ;)

I use Apple stuff.  I watch RLC on one of my MacBook Pro computers or on my iMac.  When I am using my iPad or iPhone, I have to connect with RLC through the Puffin browser in order to see the webcam videos.  The resolution is best when using my laptop or desktop, due to Puffin's limitations--but the Puffin browser is still quite acceptable.

I used Apple in the early '80's, and then not again until around 2007.  I still use Windows-based PC's provided by my employer when I am at the office (although I often bring my MacBook Pro to the office for my personal web surfing and some other non-business stuff.  I like the Apple operating systems, computers and devices a lot better.  I am always frustrated when I (often) have to go into my wife's PC to fix Windows-related problems--including the frequent incompatibility between manufacturer-supplied wi-fi and other software, and the corresponding Microsoft stuff.

Most of my friends who are computer techies prefer Android devices or, on a desktop or laptop, Linux or some other platform.  I don't do that because I am happy with Apple.  It's all a matter of personal preference, and I would not criticize anyone who likes PC's better.

This topic about computer preferences ought to be moved to the Random Discussions thread.
