Viruses, spyware, etc. are one of the major reasons I switched, I have a PC 
upstairs that just sits there due to the constant problems, even after 
buying and using programs that would cure the problems.  Since switching to 
the Mac, not one problem.

But as you say everyone has their own preferences, I for one will not switch 
back to any PC.
