Macintosh Easiest PC Ever Created.

Without a doubt the Apple product is far easier to use, this has been the case since the first model Macintosh.
Try this quick test, highlight the characters in any field, like the Subject field in this forum, on the Mac pressing the up or down arrow takes you to the start of end of the field, this holds true wether the text is selected or not, try it again unselected.
Try that on a PC (Windows), it works in a way that is not intuitive, you'll have to scroll along the text, no matter how long it is, you expect when you use a Mac to be able to go to either end of a particular text box etc. it's the sort of feature that is pervasive throughout the Mac OS, simple, helpful design and it's consistent throughout the software.
Is it a programmer that allows this to happen, or the way the system is built? either way it comes back to poor design on behalf of, or by, the Microsoft windows team.
Every part of the macintosh experience functions in this 'easy to use' way, in comparison Windows is akin to "letting blood".
