    Old versions of VLC don't show subtitles correctly, the latest version does but it also lags terribly so I'm waiting for a better release. Katana messed about with Mplayer on his Macbook, we couldn't get subtitles to show up at all on it (if there's a way, let me know and I'll pass it on to him). And I just dislike Quicktime, I find it takes too long to load things.
    Weird, I have absolutely no problems viewing subtitles on VLC and especially Mplayer. Also, bear in mind Quicktime is considerably better natively (like most Apple software) on OS X than Windows. Either way, I don't use Quicktime as there's no reason to, VLC/MPlayer support all of the standard encodes fan sub groups release (MKV/OGM with soft sub).

    In my case, I don't view subtitles when I'm watching Anime, but I do for Korean dramas. You'll need to press the key 'J' in Mplayer to bring the subtitles up. There's a guide on their website for all of the commands.

    Edit: It's worth noting that the lag might be caused by the specification of your friend's computer.

    Matisse is most definitely winning. A Family Car will always be more useful than an F1 Racer to travel between London and Manchest :yep:

    Windows = Extremely General Purpose.
    Mac = Special Purpose, but many different special purposes.
    Linux = Geeks who sit in their mother's basement trying to win out against an army of flags and apples by using penguins.

    Most people will know what Windows and Mac are, but I have a feeling if you go and ask many people on the highstreet "Do you know what LInux is?", most will say no XD

    There are two distinct issues being made here. The first one is that, from my own experience and research, if you want a similar specification to the laptop that I have, you'll be expected to pay around the same price, Apple or not. Furthermore, the overall build quality of an Apple laptop is far better than others on the market. For instance, my laptop is made of aluminum not plastic. I'm not talking about desktop computers, I'm referring to laptops. Desktops are another discussion entirely.

    The second issue is about operating systems. I don't consider Linux viable nor applicable for what I need or what 'most' people need, professional or not. It's fantastic and great at what it does, but that's just it, what it does.

    Except, the F1 racer can only be driven on a specially made road/track (because the public roads are too bumpy and rough) and will require a specialist driver. Alternatively, the family car is practical, efficient and will almost guarantee that you get there. Also, I doubt very much that Linux is better for the type of work I do. OS X is very stable, something I need when working on large HD motion work or opening up multiple 32 bit 600 dpi images at 6.6GB each.

    You've failed to answer any of my inquiries and have resorted to showing how customizable an OS is? Your priorities are not in order. This discussion will end here unless you can form a valid point to support your claims.

    I'll end with this:

    I can admit you won the debate, but to be honest, I am to lazy to type a reply to all your statements.
    Also, I totally agree with that article. Mac is better for the wider audience. But, if we use the car metaphor; the average person knows how to use a car, but just because a formular car is more complicated to drive does it mean it is worse that your average cheap family car.

    So in the end fair play to you. :adore:
