Bluetooth and WiFi wizards... oh please.

Security Center. Ok, so this relies on a running service in Windows which can be disabled. Enough said.

That's absolute rubbish. I can buy a beautifully engineered MacBook right now with a beefy intel Core2 processor and a gig of ram with photo, video, jukebox and blogging software that aren't crippled trials for a grande. To top it off it comes with OS X.

Dude Please read!

10.4.x (Tiger) or 10.3.x (Panther) updates & Service Packs on Windows are one and the same. They are OS Updates - not upgrades. Both are free from Apple and Microsoft respectively.

98 > XP & 10.3 > 10.4 are Upgrades. They are different operating systems. Just because Apple doesn't give their OS an entirely new name doesn't mean it's just an update.
