You lead with a claim that you must buy PhotoShop. I don't want to upset you but are you open to free apps for that?
I've had a Mac for 2 years now. Recently, I wanted to scan some trading cards being sold. This task was very laborious - there's no built in software to do so. One can scan images, but not crop or edit them (without buying Photoshop).
With Mac, one can't select text to print or save without a multistep clipboard process.
Searching directories with Finder is kludgy at best. I can open two Explorer screen in XP, and instantly move files from one to another.
My 5 year old Windows XP does all these tasks in seconds, with just a few clicks. None of the Mac-to-Windows pages were helpful at all.
I like the Mac's boot up speed and relative security from hacking, so my financials go on it - but for ease of use, it is worse than DOS 3.1.
