You're just jealous at having to work at the Wintel cooperative for all those years and not being able to get any of your paychecks from the Church of Macintology...
Nah, I speak from experience. Bought the wife a mac a couple of years ago. Made some sense, she used a lot of digital photography, digital camcorder, did a lot with music. PC's sucked at multimedia...you could buy a sony machine with 43 different software packages soldered together with baling wire, but the mac was (and is) pretty cool as far as multimedia software implementations go.
After purchase, I was disappointed. The modem was a crappy softmodem that underperformed the nice 3com hardware modem in her old pc on the bad phone lines in her neighborhood. The maxtor disk drive started whining after a year - what do they expect with passive cooling? The cool trayless cd 'slotdrive' stopped sucking in cd's after about a year. The OS X I had bought with the unit turned out to be largely beta code, and I had to pay $30 to get the 'real thing' when 10.1 came out, but that had problems too, so I was supposed to pay more for 10.2. Gave up, sold it, bought another PC. Windows XP with movie maker, media player and the camera wizard appears to have closed the gap with OS X as far as multimedia ease of use.
In all, I was unimpressed, but I recognized that I had been sold the 'sizzle' for a premium price and gotten a pedestrian hardware platform with very good software out of it.
Back on topic, I've used both turbotax and taxcut, they both work fine. I've stuck with turbotax because I get the 'staples' 12 step deal every year where I end up getting the federal, state and quicken software, with efiling, for free after rebates, coupons and gift cards.
Free is good. My second favorite four letter word...
