to suggest that windows is just now catching up w/ mac because of dashboard is ludicrous in the extreme. the quick launch bar has been in windows for so long I don't even know if you've even ever used windows. adding program shortcuts to either the desktop or the quick launch or even auto start is so easy the for you to suggest that the simple one click aspect of mac is a selling feature is also seriously flawed. this leads to the conclusion that you're a fan of mac regardless of any other fact or mitigation. thus, like many other mac fans who have said things like "it's better because I like it more", you're opinion means nothing.
