    It is the de facto OS, no compatibility issues whatsoever.
    It has better value-for-money.

    You are with the masses. People don't see you as a snob.
    Have no problem doing your work at home because you are using the same OS as your office.

    I think they just want to know if they are missing something

    i use mac bcoz of the aluminum-built hardware (generally they are aluminum-built), different OS (not better than Windows but definitely it has its own advantages), and just be a lil' bit different from the rest (now not really, many peep use mac alr :S).

    I'm a Mac user, and I have no issues with other users' personal choices in OS, hardware etc (use whatever makes you happy), but that statement is hardly a ringing endorsement of Windows!

    in the US, more people use mac then pc. Think the question will be asked the other way.

    Eh, where did you get that idea? A market share of less than 10% is hardly dominance, even if you allow for the fact that market share and usership aren't synonymous.

    If apple will junk iTunes then it will be good. As long as iTunes is used on Mac products....it makes the product junk. Better to go unix platform.....Mac is nothing more then a front for unix which is not that great compared to GNOME or KDE.

    Well, at least where I am in california now,like 50-60 % users are Mac User. Even office and IT personnel in the university I work at are using Mac. thats where i got my idea i guess.

    its up to individual what he wants to use. mac users do get virus too.....just rarely.

    I think is a nonsense to debate for such technical stuff, it's just a computer that works in different OS, i does get such question too : "oh if i use mac is it a virus free computer? without getting any antivirus software?" or "designers are always using mac is that a must? so if i'm designing i MUST use a mac?" how true? do you really need a mac to be a workhorse for your designing software or even photography? i think is just a trend, in sg people always follows what others are doing.

    Mac where got free of malware , spyware? That's a miserable myth that apple perpetuate...Just google for it. And in a way, it's worse b/c there's very little support for MAC users if a deadly virus do hit and it's only a matter of time.
    For PC users, well, we are hit so often that we learn how to immunize our selves and there's simply so many anti-watever-ware out in the market. Even the free ones are very very good.

    And MAC do hang as well. In fact, windows XP is very stable already. I really dun recall anytime in the last 5 years seeing a blue screen of death due to software issues ( got 2 times cos of harddisk spoil though). For someone that uses the PC everyday at work, at home for video, games, pictures etc , i say that's a pretty good track record. It's really quite stable and i really dun see the lame issue people have with the "BLueeeee" screen of death..

    Anyway, pure reason why i might get a MAC is for the software environment. The iphone is normal as a phone , but the ability to install those wonderful apps makes it fun to have. Same thing for MAC, it's the software that's rather nice...but i dun want to pay $1.5K for a mac book with specs that's even lower than a $799 Acer laptop...

    which is why there's a very strong x86 community out there....

    my vista hung on me maybe 5 times in the 3 years i use this laptop..

    i don't know why people complain about windows, if you keep a clean ship, i.e. stop looking at weird sites (e.g. p0rn), stop visiting dubious links, stop clicking weird emails or msn messages from people who ask you to see them naked, you will not have problems!
