Apple "I want Vista to be a better OS than it's been promoted to be, but at the same time, I also want OS X to finally receive the public adoption that it deserves. Now is the time for Apple to creatively promote its Macintosh platform with OS X. This is the critical hour, and if Apple is able to take advantage of the uneasy feeling that many have towards Vista, then they could attract an untold amount of new users."

We wouldn't put up with a car that broke down once every two weeks, so why would people tolerate this from their PCs, I wonder?

There's a flaw in your logic though.

I'm sure you've heard of the common stereotype of how women are treated when they take their cars into the shop for a check-up or repairs. Mechanics will try to rip them off, telling them they need to make (frivalous in actuality) repairs and over charge them for the service.

To be fair, it probably happens to men who don't understand cars as well. The point still remains, that people who don't understand certain basics of cars or computers will just dismiss the problems as "the nature of the beast" and pay the bill anyways.
