Maybe you are doing something wrong with your PC?

Or could it be your choice of platform?

I just unboxed and updated a new iBook for my Daughter (for 
Christmas). The entire set-up procedure took about 10 minutes 
(including the installation of a 802.11g card), followed by a HUGE 
(17 different software updates) of the OS, QuickTime, multiple 
applications, and various system components.

Why some people continue to endure computing pain is difficult to 
comprehend from here.
