    Title says pretty much what I'm looking for. I have done the tour on the Apple Store website. But would like to find a way to download a low feature sample of OS-X to see what it is like. If this request is not clear, please post any questions to clarify. The Mac-PC commercials have gotten to me.

    It would be nice if there was such a thing, but alas, there is not. The closest you'll get is trying out a Mac at your nearest Apple retailer, or installing a program such as FlyakiteOSX to skin your Windows install to make it Mac OS X-like (note that this only works with Windows XP pre-SP3).

    There is no way you will be able to replicate the "Mac Experience"™ without using a Mac…

    Best bet is to get down to the Apple store and spend some time there. :)

    I was afraid of that, and thanks for the prompt reply.

    There's no legal way. Even if you wanted to you'd most likely be wiping out your Windows install, and it's not for the technically challenged.
