While people much smarter than I have commented on the differences between Macs and PCs, I will hold out this humble observation: I put my PC in the basement in December, and have used a 17 inch iMac as my day-to-day computer for the past 6 months. For the past two weeks I’ve been connecting using a variety of Windows-based machines at Internet cafes — mostly Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Tonight I fired up the iMac for the first time in a couple of weeks and I gotta tell you: the Internet is a far more beautiful place when you look at it through a large, beautifully anti-aliased screen with a Macintosh UI wrapped around it. It makes using any version of Windows seem akin to trying to paint with socks on.
Just an observation.
