It's cause it was a scrap yard. Someone scraped the macs for $$ and they just decided to use them.

yes, because semi trucks line up in the dozens to drop off rolls of stainless steel to a scrap yard.

The number is growing exponentially. More and more businesses are moving over to mac based environments.

As for the differences, yes their are differences. Things behave slightly differently. You can't say windows is right and mac is wrong, as who is to say windows isn't wrong on how things are done? With very little effort, you can get used to using both mac's and PC's. I used both daily for around 2 years.

As for one button mice, they are what came with the older macs (PowerPC). Instead of right click, you control+click.

As for deleting, to get a normal delete you do shift + delete if I am correct? Hard to remember, these things just come naturally.

I'll probably buy a mac someday. They're nice machines. But I'd probably either run Ubuntu or XP on it. Not really compelled to ever use Mac OSX.

Before intel CPUs started appearing in Macs though, I would never even consider it.
