Most experts will agree that "quirks and unreliability" are more likely to
be hardware issues rather than software problems (e.g. not enough memory,
low quality periferrals, etc.). My first system was built using inferior
parts and it gave me all kinds of errors and performance problems. My latest
system was built using high quality, name brand parts and I don't have a
*** of trouble with it. I will give Apple credit though, they do use high
quality components in their systems, but on average you pay 1/3 more than
you would for a comperable PC equivalent.

Marketing doesn't influence a company's decision as to what platform they
will invest their time and money into, it's the potential for the highest
return on investment. I think it's a no-brainer that most software
developers go where the money is, i.e. the 90% PC marketshare. Marketing
comes into play AFTER the the product is developed and is ready to sell to
I do agree that when comparing apples to apples there is no superiority
between one OS or another, essentially they all get the job done. Yet you
Mac-ies insist on looking for any opportunity to berate "Windoze". I guess
when you're drowning you'll grab onto anything that appears to float.

Yeah, it SEEMS that way doesn't it? In reality, I find myself being the
defender, not the instigator, of misguided Mac Attacks.

When was the last time you were in a store that sells computer software?
There are tons more of EVERY type available exclusively for PC users.
Finally, I apologize for referring to Mac owners as zealots, they are
