Linux system when a problem occurs (and they do). A Mac just works.


In 16 months of Mac OS X I've had precisely 0 issues. All s/w
installs are simple to the point of being ridiculously easy, fast and
problem free.

I wish I got paid every time I've had to sort out a problem on my
neighbour's Mac.

Hmm. Maybe you've "sorted out" your neighbor's Mac a little too often and now it's infected with repairs?

A friend of mine, perhaps the most clueless where it comes to computers, got a Macbook pro about 2 years ago and it has never had a hiccough despite his carelessness. He rates this as his golden age of computing having klutzed up a large number of PC's and laptops.
