No interest in iLife?
Authored by: kingtj on Jan 16, '04 12:25:33PM

You know, I find it a little humorous and ironic whenever I see people making these types of comments. (EG. "I don't do any music or photography, or make my own videos - so I just don't care about iDVD, iPhoto, iLife, GarageBand, etc. etc.)

There's nothing wrong with that, of course! It's just that Apple has always leaned heavily towards the "creative" types who primarily do these types of tasks with their computer. Sometimes I'm amazed that folks who have no interest in any of this made the decision to purchase a Mac in the first place. (Not because it's not an excellent computer with a teriffic OS, but because Apple still seems to have the mindset that their market is the "creative professional" or "liberal arts student/teacher" crowd.)

Honestly, the thing that sold me on my first new OS X Mac was the ability to work with video editing and burning results to DVD-R disc. I already owned a DV camcorder and was frustrated that it was much more unstable and fickle trying to edit video with it on a PC.

Now, I use my Mac for all sorts of things -- but I just don't think they had strong enough offerings in other software areas to make me switch over if I wasn't already interested in the video production aspect.
