poot_rootbeer: Does Windows come with an ssh client yet
Waldo Pepper: Honestly i never understood why most average folks didn't go for the mac. for the average home user especially in the earlier days of home computing the mac is just so much easier to set up and use.

jaytkay: But the real feat was the hardware integration and software design - Windows didn't even come close in usability until Windows 1995.Networking was built into Macs. Sound was built in. Adding storage meant simply plugging in an external hard drive (or several).None of those things were easy on a DOS machine. You had to figure out WHICH card to buy, dick around with IRQ settings (if you had an available IRQ) and install card-specific drivers.Even buying a DOS printer wasn't simple. "Will this printer work with my Wordperfect?" "I dunno, better call the company and ask". Meanwhile, all Mac-compatible printers worked with all Mac software.
