Nah, it's Linux users who do all the bashing. Apple fanboys are too busy trying to get their hardware competitive to care about Windoze. We already know that: "OS X is good because yours sucks" and that "they both suck for different reasons."
But I don't think they both suck in equal proportions in only different areas. The architectural theme and organization of the two have had the same basic differences since their respective beginnings and Win8 (or win7) versus OS X 10.8 is no different in that regard.
One is elegant (meaning simplistic) and stable and the other is elaborate (meaning complex and convoluted) and volatile.
I've used OSX and I don't think its complex and convoluted and volatile at all. It has the same feel as running a good Linux or Unix distro, and if Apple ever sold OSX as a stand-alone OS that could be installed legally on any compter, I would likely own a copy or two. And I also agree, Windows 7 is elegant and stable, and I have grown to like it almost as much as I like Solaris.
I kinda find the hypersensitivity a bit strange tho. I doubt you will physically be affected by the use of a dollar sign next to a capitol M. Wait, let's test that theory:
M$, M$ M$... tell me when you explode into bits... M$ M$ M$ M$ M$...
Given the horrendous markups Apple imposes on the hardware it puts inside their boxes, its a little ironic that you choose to pick on MS as the money-grubbing bandits. Really, a 5 generations old GT120 GPU costs how much again?
