Here is a very interesting article by Paul Thurrot that praises XP and Longhorn, and doesn't say much about OS X. He may have a point, but at the very end of the article the guy lost any credibility that I may have given him. http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/longhorn_task-based_ui.asp "Mac OS X is attractive, and arguably "better looking" than Windows XP, though that's a subjective declaration. But it is most certainly not "easier to use". And that's not "Apple bashing," it's just the way it is." This comes from the guy that runs the Win Super Site, dedicated to windows fanboys, claiming not to be biased towards windows. . .
