Apple If you have Apple's QuickTime media player and/or iTunes installed on your Windows machine, you might want to keep an eye on apple's Software Update tool. Apple is once again using the update tool to push unwanted software onto users' machines without asking for permission.

I have NOT been arguing that Macs cannot run pretty much all software. My point was that the software developed specifically for Macs are limited. I had thought I made that clear in my posts:

Sorry, I should have been more specific. When I said Macs, I meant Macs OS's, not OS's in a VM.


2) Macs cannot run programs developed for Windows (like .exe files) without buying some sort of emulation/virtualization program first (and vice versa).


Yes, Macs can run software for other OS's, but that is only if they use another OS. The operating system comes with a Mac cannot run as many programs on its own without additional purchases.
