    In my opinion time doesn't matter for my argument, just for the specific examples which you want me to provide. I feel my opinion has held true and will continue to do so

    Didn't hold true in June 2007 when the article I linked was written.

    Sorry, not even close. The IBM PC needed an OS and IBM was not willing to
    market to a high volume, low margin market segment, so they SOLD their code
    to B. Gates -- the DOS version.

    Mr Gates and Steve Jobs went to Xerox PARC to see a presentation of a
    system with a W.I.M.P interface (Windows, with an Indicator Mouse Pointer).

    Jobs had the epiphany and created the Lesia model from which the Macintosh series was developed.

    Gates quickly saw that the GUI was far superior to the DOS he was selling and developed Windows 3.0

    Here's one site for comparisons: http://www.systemshootouts.org/

    Not that it's going to change anyone's opinion, the next argument will be that Dell (or to whichever brand they would be compared) sucks / is too expensive, there are cheaper PCs from other manufacturers etc...
