I had the same problem when I recently started using Mac. I couldn`t understand all this "eject" stuff, because it works a little different from Windows, but once you use the Mac for a while, you start learning the differences.
It`s really easy to eject a drive from both Win and Mac, but I think the major difference I have experienced is that when I eject something from the Mac, it ejects immediately (just rightclick + eject). On the other hand, when I was using Win XP I would try to eject something and it would not properly eject after many tries (this happened frequently). No big deal, and probably fixed in Win7, but that was my experience.
Fuck it, I will add this: whoever thinks Windows is better than MacOS X needs to grow up. And whoever thinks MacOS X is better than Windows needs to stay away from all those mochafrappwankachinos at fucking Starbucks; they are killing your braincells. And whoever thinks Linux is better than all of the above needs to get laid.
I agree. These days, one is not better than the other. Or maybe I should say, OS X was better than Vista, but now that Win7 is out it seems there is no clear winner.
I think Apple runs smoother for more people because Apple OS runs on one package (their own). On the other hand, MS runs on many different computers/packages so you run into the occasional error, etc.
Obviously for advanced users like TS, MS is the better choice. I imagine even if he did encounter a problem on his computer (due to the OS) he would actually have a little fun fixing it, but I think Mac can be more suited for the average user.
I think even TS would admit the new MS stores are pretty pathetic though. I couldn`t stop thinking about this thread the first time I saw one.
