Hey Jeff,
Maybe you could come down off your horse and elaborate on this comment. 
In terms of the web I would point out that IE Win is broken when it 
comes to text zoom for pixel sized text which would seem a big 
accessibility thing. Something that IE Mac has had for years. and every 
other Mac browser now.

In addition Mac OSX has a whole set of accessibility preferences called 
"Universal Access" for people to control the keyboard, mouse, and 
assist people with vision problem both with changing the look and size 
of everything on the screen and sound to assist them.

So what's with the slam on the Mac?
