Apple's update is opt-out
another windowss minstrel singing paeans of that system Of all the things to compare!!!!! a simple software update for a audio / video program compared to a full OS!!!! And besides if we are serious then I will stick to Apple coz the list of patches of Windows and related junk is ever growing so much so that I run out of a disk space
Microsoft can teach Apple what? The Windows Genuine Advantage disclosure? The only interest that serves is Microsoft's although they BS'ed their way by not allowing any updates unless you install their spyware. Don't get me wrong, the Mac is more hype than fact and the cards are carefully hidden in both camps. At least a user can fix & upgrade their PC themselves choosing from a wide selection of vendors & applications. Macheads have to go to Big Brother Steve's indoctrination shop where he not only has you by the short & curlies - he owns them. Bottom line - they both suck but for different reasons.
