"You have to understand an operating system to actually see the differences.

This is true. I am a normal user, I don't know the internals of an operating system, this is why I don't see any differences. "

so you can't see the difference between windows, linux and Mac OS X.

What's a "normal user", a user using a browser and email application, surfing at Ebay and Amazon for some minutes? Yes, then you won't see any difference.

a normal user, will see a difference when he visits a site that requires a plugin,etc, that is only available for windows and not for linux to view some of the website's content. or when the website streaming video can not play because it's having problems detecting non IE browsers. I have run into a few sites with this sort of problems.
