Why is being simple in itself a bad thing?

I just got a Macbook for Christmas and I love it. I don't think it's simple so much as intuitive. You can do highly complex operations of work with an easy to use interface (especially with some of the new features in Leopard). It's not for dumb people at all. Actually a whole creative culture has developed around Macintosh including independent film (The movie Cold Mountain and the show Scrubs are both made on Macs), independent music production, and not to mention it's heavy education contributions. There are thousands of unique and complex functions that Macintosh are fulfilling take these German artists for example who are using their Mac to project artwork outside of a moving train! (http://www.engadget.com...). I can create a green screen behind me on my Mac that project movies in the background while I talk on my webcam. Can your computer do that?

My main contention is that you claim it is "2" simple. 'Too' implies that it is excessively simple. It is perfectly intuitive and in no way simple too a degree that takes away from its appeal. I don't know what kind of evidence to offer because you didn't really offer any either.

Please type out your words for the remainder of this debate.

PS I've always been a PC person but I love my new Mac. I'm here to defend its honor!

"It sucks...to much 2 be on the market."

Explain why Apple stock is doing so well. You can't because you closed your account. Nice. Is there anyway to just end a debate?

Dear Debate.org staff,

If a debater closes his account the debates he is actively participating in should be cancelled! I know this isn't hard to do and it should be fixed as soon as possible because I see this happen all the time on this site.
