His solution? Use a Mac. There's an article about his switch to Apple here. His blog, where he details his switch and defends it against upset windows zombies is here.
My theory is that more people don't switch to Mac for the following reasons:
- Never tried it. Many people have not used a Mac running OS X for any significant length of time. Everyone I know that has used both, perfers a Mac. Essentially no crashes, no virus problems, easy set up, etc.
- Too heavily invested. Some folks have gone to classes and paid for lessons and spent years learning all the tricks necessary to keep Windows running. They can't justify in their minds switching to an "easy" machine. It would mean they've wasted huge amounts of their time. Secretly, I think these folks actually like it when their machine crashes so that they can prove they know how to re-install and re-configure a computer. And of course some folks get paid to fix this stuff, so of course they have a preference for which computer you use.
