But you pay twice as much for a macintosh as you do for a PC. I'd rather have a $400 PC with a $100 OS than an equivalent macintosh for $900 and a $25 OS. Your argument is fail.

OSX can't even touch windows when it comes to scalability and compatibility. For mac users it's either Job's way or the highway.
