I've been a Mac user for about 4 years now. I grew up with Windows. I switched, and can consider myself much happier for the experience. Mac OS X is a lot more stable than Windows. And that includes XP. I've used both. I work with both, and I support Windows at work. I keep my systems clean and do my best to keep them stable and efficient. Windows still crashes. As far as interface goes, OS X is a lot more user friendly. If you've used both, and are comfortable using both, you understand.
