The Digital Music Weblog pointed us to a post
on Puddlegum, a music news site, naming five reasons musicians love Macs
. Those reasons include aesthetics, sex appeal, ease of use, overall cost and peace of mind. Of course those are also the reasons why even the musically inept and tone deaf people use Macs, but it's no secret that creative professionals are more inspired by hardware and operating systems that are more inspired.
Then, of course, there's the snob factor - musicians are snobs and so are Mac users (Puddlegum's assertion, not mine) so it's a natural fit. I can't say I agree with that, although a snobby, elitist Mac user reference is always good for a laugh. Speaking of laughs... What's the best way to confuse a drummer? Put sheet music in front of him. HA! I crack me up.
