"What about the limitation on user experience, stability, automatic updates, security issues and proprietary software that Microsoft throw at us?"....eh hang on a mo'?
"user experience" - Win 7 has a great UI and very good user experience - whole family loves it
"stability" - lets see...since installing 4 months ago, not one issue.
"automatic updates" (which can be disabled of course) - just whats needed to keep a pc up to date with the latest security issues and protection. After all tech moves on and so do criminals. Same cant be said for Apples lot...and yes their are security holes in Macs.
"security issues" - 95% of the world is Windows so its inevitable that someone somewhere is going to try and break in. Just because no one can be arsed to weasel into Macs doesnt mean its secure. Far from it from what I have read...
"proprietary software that Microsoft throw at us" - yep, nice to have some free sw thrown in, oh...and the option to use any other sw I choose instead of Microsofts (so not really proprietary) - same cant be said for Apple (EVERTHING is proprietary and controlled as tightly as a gnats chuff with Apple!!)
