I guess the Mac/PC debate, like any other debate, is fueled by your individual experience with either system. No matter how many times somebody tells you one will not crash..if you crash one the first time you fire it up..they are crap for now and eternity.
Kind of like the health care debate. If you have no problems with your care or premiums or access then everything is hunky dory. But ask the guy who just changed jobs and can't buy insurance at any price because of a pre-existing condition and his opinion will be quite different. All opinions are based on experience.
