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."

there are not enougt software, too limited...

on windows and linux you have 23 email client, 47 software to create dvd.....

people like variaty...

I don't think this is the problem. Most Windows users stick with Internet Explorer, and I bet a large proportion use Outlook Express for e-mail simply because they're the defaults.

The average consumer wouldn't have any problem with Safari and Mail if they switched to OSX. Let's face it, most home PC users don't need specific software, as long as they have a decent web browser, an e-mail client and a word processor they would be happy. The only software the average user might need that would cause a problem if they switched to a Mac are games.
