I'm generally unsatisfied with the Windows start menu. They need to get rid of it and design a new interface. Microsoft will release an upgrade version to Vista in 2008--that will be similar to Vista. From what I hear, however, in 2010, there will be another (maybe web based?) form of Windows that will eliminate the start menu altogether.

I believe Steve Jobs was referring to Alan Kay's statement on usability.

While Thinkpads are wonderful machines, they cannot customize their hardware to match their software and vice-versa.

At the end of the day, one can have cool experiences even on a cheap Dell running Redhat 5.2, but the ability to have an integrated, seamless experience is part of what makes Apple special.

And a disclaimer - I'm not an Apple fanboy, but I do understand where the Mac-fanatics are coming from.
