Mac OS X is a \"breath of badly needed fresh air\"

Mac OS X vs. Windows

Seattle Weekly columnist Jeff Reifman says that addiction to Windows revenue, mediocre products, and missed that opportunities : "Over the past year, my frustration with Windows grew, as did my envy of Apple's cool new products. Finally, last month I went out and bought an G5 [with Mac OS X]. It had been years since I'd used a Macintosh. Until recently, I dismissed those who did as impractical, elitist hipsters, and I mocked the Mac 'switch' ads on TV. But in the first five minutes on my new Mac, I was surfing the Internet, sending e-mail, and ripping a CD. OS X has been a breath of badly needed fresh air after Windows."

    Good Article

    It's a bit long, but I felt it was a very good look by someone with a clear perspective.

    a bit of fresh air

    with all these "apple is doom if they don't open up iPod/iTunes" articles, this is a breath of fresh air.
