I don't see how people continue to compare OSX and Windows, they're nothing alike aside from using a keyboard, mouse, speakers and a monitor to interact with each respective OS.

Just face it Stratos, Windows 7 is far superior to your Apple cats. Imagine using an Apple sticker just to 'stand out'. I much prefer the windows logo.

We all know when an apple is left for a bit it goes bad.

I hope you're right DMGrier! That MIGHT be acceptable for people who don't use their systems for serious work -- business, science, medicine, etc. for example --- but most people who DO use their computers for these kinds of purposes, need real keyboards and full computers with the ability to fully function, at least some of the time. I have seen the trend toward aesthetics over function, (for example in having 'whistle clean' Desktops and IE9 home pages with fewer and fewer links on them), and now the trend is extending to putting almost all the energy and effort into making devices for entertainment + communication + sales purposes, with less and less regard to the more 'serious' uses of the devices. That's fine, IF and only if MS offers those of us who choose to, OPTIONS to set our devices up in other ways. Unfortunately, it seems as if many of those options are being taken away from us with every new incarnation, and that is what really upsets me.

Of course Mac would seam better to past windows OS's because they design their OS around a very specific set of hardware components, thus making it appear to be more reliable. The fact is, Windows has a much wider veriety of components to choose from; hence Windows market share. They have superior idea. Doing this is much harder than apple's approach which is simply to control your experience. It is kinda of gutless really. They havn't any balls to really challenge them selves.

Apple cats? I don't hate Windows, you're greatly mistaken if that's what you think, I'm a big time Win7 supporter. I also recognize OSX's strengths just like any other OS. In my line of work I need to work with both on managed systems. I simply meant that both OSX and Windows aren't alike to be able to compare fairly. If Windows was based on a UNIX code and basically a Microsoft version of it, then I think we can compare it to OSX.

The problem I have with Apple is OSX isn't the result of using all Apple code, they took something that existed (FreeBSD) and built on top of it. All the security benefits that OSX provides has nothing to do with any work Apple put into the OS, those security features are already part of the Unix code they use. It's like claiming you made the ultimate spaghetti sauce when you used a jar of Prego to start with then simply added/changed stuff to it and claimed it as your own. If you want to take credit for the product, make the darn thing from scratch, that's my beef.

This entire thing makes no sense to me. I blame Vista, if they hadn't released it before third party support was properly ready mac fans wouldn't have this ridiculous ideal that all windows versions are horrible.

There was only ever one truly horrible windows OS and that was ME, and I shall never speak of it again.

MS hurt itself even more prior to ME... look up Bill Gates and Windows 98. Live on TV and a huge audience... BSOD.
