    eckspee is a great incentive to get a job to pay for the on-going maintenance costs, it creates jobs for people (to set the system up), it gives something for Apple to be better than...

    You should post those 4, I have 2, Gaming and TV options. Sure Windows is clunkey and all but try finding a $20 PVR TV tuner for your Mac or running Halflife2 on it without XP.

    (i) Some software titles are available only for windows, including those that interface with certain scientific equipment.
    (ii) Some devices are compatible only with windows.
    (iii) Games.
    (iv) Cut function in windows explorer and absence of such in Mac os finder.
    (v) Ability to empty the trash on an external drive (USB stick, for example) without emptying the trash globally.
    (vi) Some websites can be accessed only with IE on windows.
    (vii) Ability to enjoy viruses and spyware popups and absence of such an ability (so far anyway) in Mac os.
    (ix) Ability to exercise one's brain by trying to learn how to tweak the windows registry. This also helps to learn curse words, especially in foreign languages.
    (x) Bundled Solitaire and Minesweeper.

    Can't think of much else.

    In internet explorer you can highlight a set of text and print only that selection. I miss that feature so much. In mac you have to highlight the text then copy it to a text editing app and print the selection there. I've made due with out the feature.

    Download and install Print Selection Service

    While using Safari, highlight what you want to print and then go to:
    Safari Menu > Services > Print Selection

    Did you actually read the list, some of those had tongue firmly planted in cheek. That is unless you do actually enjoy spyware or editing the registry by hand.

    LOL @ eckspee! Gosh I always learn new terms here in this forum. :cool:

    LOL! So true. I have like 4 programs just to keep my computer clean of bugs. I just hate those constant monthly security patches and I remember I spent 3 hours bleeping n bleeping while digging into the registry. :mad:

    On the other hand, I miss a game that's the strictly Windoze based but it's not worth paying $$$ just to put that on my MacBook. Maybe Vista might change my mind. :( :rolleyes:

    Honestly, I think OSX should come with something like paint. It needs a quick-and-easy basic image editor that isn't iPhoto.
