Don't care what whiz-bang options or apps you have, if your platform sucks, it sucks. The PC sucks. It always has compared to the competition. It succeeded because noone ever got fired for buying IBM and they were relatively cheap when the clones hit.


Don't have time to argue everything you said but why does PC suck? Any normal argument? You can say anything but you have much more options with PC including hardware (including quality and price, the way to assemble it, so on) and software options (starting from OSes and ending by any other application category and ease to use them). Even Mac is now the same PC as others but with less flexibility to use what you want (so how can it be better than any other PC except Mac OS X which is not a holy cow too?). I agree that some competition died out which deserved to stay in my opinion (DEC Alpha, Sun workstations, others) but you can't compare them even with current Macs or PCs... The price did it part but it wasn't the only reason for PC popularity (only blind people can say so).
