I'll bet that just about everyone else on this forum has significant experience using both Mac's and PC, except for you.

THe reason I moved from PC to a Mac, back in the days of XP, was that I was having persistent and annoying network problems with my home setup. As soon as I moved, I effortlessly had my printer (before the days of network-ready printers) networked, my stereo networked...I even had my digital temperature controller for my charcoal bbq networked. Sure I could have eventually done this with a PC, and maybe even solved my dropouts problem, but after how long and after how much learning about stuff I have no time or interest in figuring out?

The last straw was when I was delivering a presentation on my PC, and mid-presentation my PC started to shut down Powerpoint to do an operating system update. PC users happily report that their PC is as fast as the day they bought it - all they have to do is a fresh install of their operating system every 6 months to keep it that way.

Mac users spend less time troubleshooting, maintaining and fixing their machines than do PC users. That is a real advantage to some people.
