Ditto. I know we should not be prolonging this age-old discussion of Windows vs. Macs but I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Apple supporter ever since my Apple II days in the early 1980s. In a research environment, we have to run Windows and, increasingly, Linux but I still use a Mac personally and run SDR Windows software via Mac OS Boot Camp.

I have use both Windows and OSX for decades, think I started with OS 6 and Win 3 after my Atari broke down :-)

The most important difference I have always noticed is *system maintainance*.

The hours,days,weeks I have spent on problems,driver updates,crashes,updating on the wrong moments, hidden incompatability,frustrations,spontaneous breakdowns,etc, is *incomparable* to the smoothness and stability of the Mac environment.

If OSX is jail, Windows is forced labour ;-)
