    Analysts I mean.

    BMO Analyst Keith Bachman thinks he knows why the Mac has surged in recent years.  The main reason, of course, is Vista. But what is it about Vista that folk don't like?

    "Thus far, user satisfaction ratings for Vista have been weak, and startup times for Vista have been known to be much slower than the Mac OS X," Bachman says. "Thus, more than 50% of recent customers buying Macs in Apple retail stores are first-time buyers."

    Thanks Keith.

    There ya go folks; OSX starts quicker ... that's why folk are buying Macs.... :-/

    As Ars Technica points out, the Mac surge started about the time that Apple switched to Intel; folk are buying Macs because they now have a way back to Windows if things don't work out.

    Yeah, I should stop posting these; I just have a low tolerance threshold for analysts who get away with making up this kind of crap.

    And looking at the responses on the Ars Technica forum .. amazing how many people signed up, just  to rubbish Vista.

    Some people have the most peculiar hobbies.
