Windows. Both companies try very hard to control the user. If anything
Apple is even more secretive and controlling then Microsoft.

There is not a strong communinity of opensource MacOS developers
despite the availability of Mac/DarwinPorts. While most *nix software

fine as long as you don't mind limiting yourself to the "Apple Way."
Linux does a far better job at presenting the full power of a computer
to the user.
