Both sides cling to bad information and bs to 'convince' the other side they are wrong.
The difference is that both the Dems and Rep. suck, while OS X and Windows both have their place.

Except that all of those netbooks will be 32-bit. Id wager that a 23-bit version will be the lions share of the cheap notebooks, too, which account for most PCs sold. Either way you cut it, virus are not gone from Windows.
Same task less steps? What does that even mean and how can you even back up that statement.
Of course you dont understand. Its faster and easier to to the same task in OS X than it is on Windows. How many steps does it take to get a screenshot on the desktop? Do you still have to go Start » Progams » Accesories » MS Paint » Edit » Paste Save As » file_name » Desktop after hitting the Print Screen button?
My system can boot faster then anything Apple has on the market. I have a faster cpu, gpu, more ram then anything apple has to offer. I can perform a full boot in 25 secs.
But on the SAME HW Mac OS X boots faster, shuts down faster, uses less resources for the same tasks, and can start up apps faster. Its just the way it is. It doesnt make Windows bad, MS has a different business than Apple does. MS has to support legacy code as part of their business model, while Apple is quick to shed its skin, sometimes too quick.
HP and Dell have systems with the same battery usage as Apple if not better.
Having an option for a much larger battery pack is not what I stated. You have once again failed to comprehend. For the same HW (which includes the a battery with the same mAh) Windows uses more power to do the same tasks. UNIX-based systems are just inherently more efficient, and with Apple adding synergy by designing the HW, they can make that even more efficient.
On top of that, you have once again jumped from talking about an OS to OS comparison to a shift to PC vendors to support your argument once cornered. I dont think you are a troll
, but I do think that you are pushing your preference on people simply for not having your needs. I, like most users, have a notebook and will only use a notebook, yet you think I am an idiot for not building my own box. Its the inability to see that your needs do not necessarily match other peoples needs combined with the radical jumps in your arguments from OS to vendor, etc. that are making some see you as a troll as that is the same short bus riding dance routine we get from our resident troll boy.
