But saying that windows is more intuitive is wrong. Windows is build upon layers and layers of crap. Like hidden files, dll files which can get lost, the registry, completely bull sh*t popups, command promps, shared files and recently insanely bad security features, etc.
I have to disagree with you here.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'layers and layers' of crap.
Hidden files are usually hidden for a reason.
They usually aren't meant to be moved, edited, or deleted unless you know what you're doing.
Hence, they are hidden. They are there if you need them, but you shouldn't unless you did something you weren't supposed to.
.dll files shouldn't be getting lost unless, again, you're doing something that you shouldn't be doing.
What's wrong with the registry exactly? As far as any normal user is concerned it should just be sitting there minding it's own business. Most users probably don't even know what it is, yet alone seen it or messed with it.
If by pop-ups you mean 'internet' pop-ups I don't see how this is related to Windows. If by Windows you mean, Internet Explorer, then I think it's fair to say that Firefox and other browsers get pop-ups as well.
The command prompt is a very useful tool. I can't imagine a case where running a cmd prompt could actually be a problem unless you're typing it something that you read on some random website to make your pc do something 'cool'.
What is wrong with shared files exactly? Sorry, I never use them because only myself and one other person use my computer...and they just use my login.
People know that Windows has security problems because most people use Windows. Therefore, people go out of their way to search for exploits so they can do things like steal credit card numbers and so forth.
If all major department stores, banks, and other large organizations that handle sensitive data began using Macs I can guarantee that people would begin looking (and finding) for exploits in the Mac OS.
One can argue that Windows has more 'problems' because it allows access to files that shouldn't be messed with. It's isn't Windows' fault that people go ahead and mess with them.
Most problems that occur on a Windows machine are PEBKAC or ID-10-T errors.
A gun store sells guns, but isn't responsible for what people do with them. They can use them for hunting, self defense, or murder.
Furthermore, I don't see how I am a Windows 'fanboy' just because "I have been using Windows most of my life".
That's like calling someone a breakfast fanboy because they eat breakfast almost every morning.
"But almost everyone eats breakfast every morning!"
And almost everyone uses Windows too.
I guess most computer users are Windows fanboys too then.
Let's just start calling everyone a fanboy.
I may as well add that I am also a bacon 'fanboy' and a mint chocolate chip ice cream 'fanboy'.
So if by intuitive you mean this
, then that's fine too.
