Apple has a much worse track record in this regard and with Linux you are lucky if it works with your peripherals at all. MS still has by far the best track record in universal compatibility.

uh, with OSX you have bootcamp to run windows and ability to read the windows partition. With Windows, you have neither ability to go the other way. It is the odd man out, abeit the 800lb gorilla odd man out.

Forgive me, but if you are dual booting into windows or running a windows VM, then you aren't running on OSX, you are then running Windows.  And the reason that is so prevalent on Apple boxes is because you often need to for compatibility reasons.

I can dual boot Apple on a hackintosh and you can run OSX in a VM on windows, too:

But I agree with your other post, lets turn this into something productive.
