Just a rhetorical question:
A recent facebook 'argument' on Mac vs. PC; this was thrown at me.... "I would love to see a Mac compile and display over 250k images to over 100 monitors which will happen next weekend in Dallas. "
Working in animation, I 'compile' over 250k images/frames almost daily when rendering or editing. I'm not sure exactly what he means about displaying them to 100 monitors, but how could that be done with OSX software and/or Apple hardware? (just for the sake of his wacky statement he threw at me)

Re: 100 monitors?
Is he talking about different pictures on different monitors or just a display of a mirrored object on all the monitors? I know for sure macs can do the latter because we did it in a training seminar on about 200 monitors running off one mac (they were actually TV's and were simply piggy backed off each other).

Windows and android fanboys are very uneducated , and get angry at the least little comment against their shepherds... Ignore him! He prolly doesn't have clue what he's talking about.

Re: 100 monitors?
If it's pushing different images to any more than a couple of monitors, there must be some serious GPU horsepower going on there. You can only have so many sources from a single graphics card, so he won't be doing this with any off-the-shelf computer.
If his argument is that a purpose built computer can perform some specific task better than an off-the-shelf general purpose computer, then he's just looking for an argument and not worth your time.
