I'm not going to say either OS is better than the other; it's really up to personal preference.
The one item that I do have an issue with is when reviews and articles (as well as Apple's commercials) talk about features or applications that Windows does not include "aka bundle".
Unlike Apple, when Microsoft includes an application with the OS, it's called bundling. If Apple adds applications to the the OS (iLife, iChat, and whatever other iApps) it's called an OS feature.
Given that, I think every reputable reviewer should not consider add-on apps as OS features when comparing products.

Guess what, Bush most likely already has the NSA spying on your whereabouts (as an adult). This way, when you say something negative about the administration or whatever he deems inappropriate, not only will he have your conversation, he knows where you are, so the gestapo can come pick you up.

People didn't fight for justice or freedom. All of us are immigrants from Europe. We came here, killed off the indians and put a flag down. You call that justice and freedom?
This has nothing to do with patriotism. People seem to be very confused about that word -> it doesn't mean follow blindly and sit by idle. It's the supposed patriotism that your talking about that will be taking your freedom. Wait until it comes knocking on your door. Lets see how patriotic you'll be then.

True, however, the part that you don't seem to understand is that this administration has a track record of slowly getting to their goal. They are old rich folks with nothing better to do.
Once they are able to subpoena the so-called non-identifying information, it opens the door for easier access to the same and additional information when simply requested.
And if you recall, Yahoo actually provided IP addresses with the information. I'd say that gives you a pretty good idea of who is searching for what.
The government needs to stop meddling in trying to raise people's kids. All of us got a good spanking if we did something wrong, nowadays you can't do that anymore -- the government is watching you.
Maybe they should poor the same energy into figuring out how the these kids are going to survive in a couple of years when they get old; no medical insurance, no pensions, no social security...but hey, at least they didn't j/o.
If a child wants to find porn he/she will. And if it happened to turn up in a search result, who cares. It's the parents' duty to educate their kids. Censorship and taboo don't educate, it just makes for a very confused and oppressed child that once set free goes either insane or wild.
We have become so ridiculous with sex and nudity; it's just laughable. A nipple from 300 yards away is a major ordeal because Super Bowl is supposed to be a family event? What a weird concept; as the participants practically beat each other for a ball (leather egg) and dozens of girls in skimpy little skirts are jumping around tits bouncing all over the place, legs up in the air...oh you get the idea.
Kids probably saw a lot more on the cheerleaders than they would have ever been able to see in the 1/3 of a second on Janet.

I agree with you that it is an attempt at an academic informational site. I myself am a "professional" student (continuously after another degree because I like the academic world -- it keeps me sane from my real career world that I'm in).
My point, however is that I am not looking for flash or glitz; "academic" is hardly an excuse for bad organization. If anything, the academic world I am in is very much focused on minimizing graphics just for the sake of it. You can make a structured site without ever using a single image. An informational site is not useful when you have to read all the text in order to find what you're looking for...that's all.
It's like having a phonebook without an index. But that is just my personal opinion. :-)
