    I Beams disappear and do not obstruct my typing.

    USB works without hassle

    I don't have to plug the mouse to the back of the computer.

    Moving files can be done even if they're open.

    UI is nicer to look at.

    No Serial numbers needed.

    More logical structure to system hierarchy

    gotta go

    50. Things just work. Printing, cd burning, mice, networks, everything.

    51. A laptop that gets enough battery life to be actually useful.

    52. Great support (community and, now, the Apple Stores).

    53. OS X

    54. Easy backup and reinstallation (if needed).

    55. Drag and drop installation of applications.

    56. Drag and dump uninstallation of applications.

    57. The iPod.

    58. A seriously cool user base.

    59. Disk images.

    60. UNIX (I know, already said) so web development is a dream.

    62) You don't click "Start" to shut down

    63) You don't have to OK all 10 windows when you install something

    64) You don't have to supervise your computer through the startup process.

    A window that never works is called a wall, hence: Where's WaldoXP

    EDIT: Fixed numbers
