I'm a retired engineer and I've used computers most of my career for design work (CAD), spread sheets, relational data bases, word processing, etc. Needless to say, I have mostly used PCs. DOS based PCs were where the Mac/Apple operating systems really gained traction in my opinion. However, again in my opinion, the Windows OS has been really pretty darned intuitive and trouble free since the XP OS. I current run Win 7 on both my laptop and desktop.

Now, most "computer" users mainly want to be able to send and receive text and graphics along with being able to access information and a few applications that they depend on. In the future, as hand held devices continue to gain ground, neither the PC nor the MAC may be the system of choice. Also, neither the iPhone/iPad/Android or anything else that's current today may have relevance in the future except from a historical perspective.

Apple IIc in 1983, PC since 1990. Still was able to sell the IIc for $500 in 1990! Was a great word processor for the time.

First machine was an Apple IIe when I was a kid, then it was PC until about 3 years ago. I'm an IT exec and have built my career on Intel/Windows over the last 15 years but the iphone/ipad have taken over the mobility market and the macbook air is a game changer for our traveling execs.

In the last three years I've had a Macbook pro and two airs. Hard to imagine ever going back to a PC.
