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."
