Well, "easier to use" is often a question of what you're used to.
Each time I use a MAC, regardless of the software version on it, I get to
crash it within 5 minutes. I'm not kidding.
My last job, I had to write my performance review on a software that was
purely MAC. I pleaded if I could hand it in some other format but it was
refused. I obediently sat in front of the MAC, and managed to freeze the
whole MAC network . 5 minutes. tops.

There's just something about the MAC interface that doesn't speak to me.  We
now have OSX at home (yeah, I crash it too, but a bit less frequently).
