    If you look up how to use simplistic features on a computer, then leave google to suggest which platform, it always suggests "on a mac". For example, if you look up "How to copy and paste" Google will suggest "How to copy and paste on a Mac".

    There are so many more Winboxes than Macs, so why is everyone googling how to do stuff like copy n' pasting on a Mac? Is it because tons of Winusers are switching to Macs these days?

    Maybe it's because Mac users are, on the whole, less capable of figuring out how to perform simple functions by themselves.

    Because they where taught how to use Windows boxes first. Thus, Macs are new and possibly hard to understand.

    Yeah... Because lots of people are switching to Mac these days, but almost no Mac users are going over to Windows.

    Or because there isn't a way to copy and paste files in OS X yet, and people go searching the 'net trying to figure out how to.

    Mac users find out themselves;)

    Huh? Cut and paste isn't possible, but Copy and paste certainly is.
