While I would never deign to endorse one computing platform over another (and if I did, I'd probably go with something free, like linux), we use macs around here. I have grown steadily more lazy in my older age and it's just easiest. It's a sexy time to be a mac user and one could easily lull himself into forgetting that they are arguably more tethered to the company that makes their OS than even our poor, masochistic friends in Windows town. I mean, Microsoft only makes the OS. It doesn't design the computer.
Fortunately, there are articles like this one to remind those of us who get Steve Jobs paid that all is certainly not perfect under the apple.
