    Check out this video I found on CNET, describing the differences between OS X and Vista. I'd say only #2 is legit...for obvious reasons.
    The other 4 "differences" are pretty retarded if you ask me.

    Complete idiocy. I like #4...mouse buttons. "With the Mac, you get just one" the talking head drones as they flash a picture of the Mighty Mouse. LOL:D

    Definitely windows biased. Although I wonder if their servers are unix based ROFL.

    One mouse button??? HAHAHAHAHA

    Even I knew OS X has support for 2 button even more. That's how you can tell it's windows biased.

    And this guy is an Executive Editor????

    Windows doesn't come with a standard mouse. The same mice that work with Windows works with Mac also. What is he talking about with the close button not working (and also, the red orb has an X too)? He's clearly Linux biased and not Windows biased. I think the whole video was to rip on both Mac and Windows evenly.

    Jezz. Is that the best Cnet can do nowadays? They've really got to work on their material, and why do those guys look like the recently unemployed channel-3 weatherman?

    "HI! This is Wink Dinkerson all you groovy gals and groovy girls! Hi! Peace Love Dope and Incense and Hari Krishna all you Hip dudesters! I'm gonna tell you all about Windows mice and BLUESCREENS before you go to Mrs. Smith's 3rd grade class"!

    I guarantee you if that guy came down to this neighborhood he'd be rolled before he could whip out his iPhone

    It's Tom from BOL. He is a Mac supporter. Don't take this so serious as it was suppose to be a joke.

    It could have at least been a bit more funny and accurate, like the southpark Mac vs. PC spoof.

    That was a rubbish attempt at humour. Especially when he said about the one button when it was clearly a MM in the picture.

    What a waste of bandwidth......

    I'm not sure if it was funny or not...

    It had the same effect on me as Everyone Love Raymond
