7%, actually, and growing.
And OSX is built on Unix, don't you know. It's as stable as a rock, the interface is gorgeous, the applications are beautiful, reliable and functional, and the computers themselves are works of art.
What has Microsoft done for you recently? Bug fixes and patching security holes?
In the last year Apple has released the G5 (world's fastest personal computer), a new line of iPods, the world's smallest and largest laptops, the iTunes music store, iTunes for windows, and their new operating system. The software updates they publish are adding more features, not fixing bugs, because there are no bugs.
Macs work easily with any hardware you plug into them (so you can use your Microsoft five-button USB optical mouse with no problems) and they can transfer files made on a PC seamlessly.
You really need someone to show you the OS to appreciate its beauty, though. But enough from me... is there a link to the Beta port yet?
