Before we even get to your points, let's have a little think about the kind of "sense" that went into each GUI design.
Apple decided that if you wanted to shut your machine down, you should choose "Shut Down" from the menu.
MS decided that if you wanted to shut your machine down, you should first click on "Start"...
Now that we have a glimpse into the minds of the designers, let's take your points one by one ;)
"Points I dislike about the mac UI
1. 1 button mouse"
Nothing to do with the interface and replaced about 10 years ago with multi-mouse buttons, thereby rendering your argument obsolete.
"2. Menubar... why is it you can only have it at the top eh?"
That's what the Amiga did... and as far as I can see MS Office does things this way too... what's your point? Can you reposition the menus on Windows? No.
"3. 1 button mouse
4. Did I say 1 button mouse?
5. 1 button mouse.
6. Apple recurrently sticking to a 1 button mouse laptop design.
7. Yes I said 1 button mouse."
Did I say Outdated argument?
You might as well admit that you haven't used a Mac since the 90s!
"8. Where the F$@@# are the pageup and pagedown keys?"
Exactly where you would expect (or at least they are on my keyboard!)
Truth be told, this is being typed on a mac.
So apart from a small gripe about menu positioning, your argument collapsed. The menu positioning was the same on the Amiga and ST (iirc) and is different depending on which Windows app you choose to examine...
Just to counter the silly comments someone else made about the OSX dock:
I'd rather have the dock in all it's beauty than the windows start bar. As more windows are opened, you're less able to see what they are because the text is lost. OSX has mouse-over for window names and the icon looks like the window itself did (useful when you've got lots of web pages open!)
