* Not enough RAM to quit application, please close some programs.
Whereas a PC just crashes the application anyway without at least informing you there's a problem.
* Keyboard not connected, press F1 to Continue
This isn't a MacOS error. This is actually very common under Windows 1.x - 3.x.
* Disk Drive not present, please insert Setup Disk
Again, I've seen a similar error under Windows.
* Your computer is not currently turned on.
What?! This is in the printed FAQ for almost all hardware from TVs to PCs. Hardly a MacOS problem.
Just bear in mind this - Apple stole from Xerox, but at least they made massive improvement OS-wise. Microsoft are lucky to have a U$3bn company to use as R&D, and without Apple you'd not have Mice / seperate keyboards / drag and drop / easily usable multimedia.
More importantly, without Apple, you'd not have a choice. And we all know what happens to companies that have a complete monopoly don't we? ...
Mind you, AcornOS is also very good, and that also got squashed by WinTel ...
