    Download a .wmv file from Limewire and open it only to find it's an application that has run and set you up with a never-ending cascade of porn pop up windows.

    A/V on msn... but thats microsofts fault..

    I cant save a Pages document as .doc quickly. I have to export to .doc after I've saved. Frankly, I'm not bothered. Just means more people should have Pages.

    I cant flood my registry with rubbish either... mainly because it doesnt really exist.

    You can not use the software on it (specifically iTunes) "in the operation of nuclear facilities".

    You can't get Safari to ever encounter a problem and it needs to close.

    No? Yes you can. It happens all the time to me. Try going on www.nintendo-europe.com (any language) and surf that website for longer than 30 seconds without Safari crashing.

    Modify the subtitles that are displayed with a movie file (i.e. changing the framerate and/or the delay).

    Grr.

    I always enjoy getting back to my Mac after a hard day at the PC :(

    Make a cup or tea?

    Seriously though, I had once a zip file I'd long since forgotten the password to and I couldn't find a Mac version of any Zip password cracker so had to use Winblows to sort.

    I'd downloaded some films which were compressed in some ridiculous '7-zip' format I'd never heard of which only ran on Windows.

    Other than that the well known games issue. Thats about it.

    I've herd that macs aren't very effective as nuclear fallout bunkers either.
    So if you see a nuke hiding behind your mac might not work.

    You can't time travel, you need a Delorian for that... and a flux capacitor.

    It can't supply baby goats with their daily nutritional requirements. I'd say that's quite a huge shortcoming.

    I visited this site, in English, for about 5 minutes. I visited every main link, and several links on various pages.

    No problems at all using Safari.
