Why would we not want to rely on our OS for everything we need? I think thats the point of additional features. A fully loaded OS with everything. Same reason people buy fully loaded cars. Sure you can get aftermarket stuff for maybe cheaper, but will it look/feel the same? of course not. Mac OS X comes with everything you need (within legalities) and without banners or ads I might include. Windows instead offers you links to download such programs instead of bundling with them, I think thats stupid, not a big issue, but dumb nonetheless, I guess the part that gets me the most is their so called default apps have ad's in them, I can't help but laugh at that. Regardless no one is going to be happy, mac fanboys will likely back me up and windows fanboys will hate, either way no one is going to be happy, although us mac users are pretty satisfied with what we got going on over here in osx.
I just wanted to add a part you said, no 3rd party apps for Mac? or not many? Please there are TONS of 3rd party mac apps and many of them are top of the line worthy to be including within osx. Mac developers are far better than the majority of windows developers, especially with attention to detail, there are many many 3rd party mac apps, visit, www.macupdate.com to get them.
