I'm pretty much a Linux guy, because I like to have an unreasonable amount of control over my own user experience. So in that way I have a ton of respect for Jobs, who has similar.. uhh.. issues. Buying a Mac requires a premium, and what it offers is design. That is a really hard thing to quantify, but is a joy to use. Mac isn't afraid to give the users a well thought out interface with hardware specced to work well together. Windows... well I don't know what they do, but not that.
