whether you like MS or not...they're the reason why the home computer is where it is today....without MS there wouldn't be so many people sitting in their basement for HOURS on end developing new linux distros so that they've got other options...and apple would still be in the stone ages if it weren't for MS's constant upgrades...apple has a history of non-innovation unless they're pushed REALLY hard...they only came out with the IPOD because they were going down the toilet...and they've only made a success out of that because of the marketing that they did for it...

Ironically, talk to anyone that's installed Leopard, or look at any Apple forum. Leopard was far buggier than Vista at it's release. Only 3 weeks later, it has already had a major update. Leaving many issues unresloved. Yet they continue to jab at MS.
Apple's overall market share was about 4.5% in 2005, 5.5% on 2006, and will be about 6.5% the end of 2007. 20% gains are impressive, but the ~6% overall market share is not. This despite the fact they've sold over 100 million iPods, received tons of free press for the iPhone, and switched to Intel hardware that allows for faster, cheaper systems (that can also run Windows). Due to their small market share, they are not a frequent target of money hungry malware authors. Finally, Vista has recieved a lot of negative press. It seems to me this ought to be a 'perfect storm' for Apple to add some major market share. Yet they have not. Why?

Those who know anything, know all those Mac ads are complete crap. They were funny at first, now its just pitiful.

they don't have to worry too much about that...why would the media talk about an OS that 4 people are using?
the media from talking about how horrible Leopard has been and how many people are having problems with it

I am not a big fan of Microsoft and their actions, but personally, I find Macs too expensive, and not worth the money. You might as well install Ubuntu with Beryl, and it would yield even better results from the OSX's and Leopard's 'magnificent interface' and take up less system resources.
Microsoft have a lot to improve in Vista, however, it is an OK Operating System, it has new features. Just like any new Operating System, it has bugs, and I dare say not less than its counterpart. Personally I don't want to try out a buggy operating system, that's just not my kind of fun, but when Microsoft release Service Pack 1 for Vista, I'll consider upgrading, and yes, I won't moan about the resources it takes up, because that's just the way that things are when you upgrade.
