You are a bit confusing here. Macs play DVDs out of the box. Playing QuickTime is different. You are right that you need QuickTime Pro to play full screen. It is a method for Apple to pay for the licensing the pay for in QuickTime, and make them a profit of course. But all you really need is MPlayer or VLC. I use both much more often than QuickTime.
You know what really sucks for Mac users is that Microsoft stopped writing WiMP for Mac OS X. They came out with version 9 for Mac OS X a few years ago, then let it stagnate. It actually still works well on PowerPC Macs, but NOT on Macintels. The freeware they refer Mac users to as a replacement does not work on Macintels either. Therefore:
1) Any Mac user loses out on any improvements in WiMP beyond version 9.

Thank you Microsoft. Not.

Yeah. Point taken. This isn't going to warm the hearts of typical IT staff or Debt Management to the Mac. I don't get the marketing niche they are attempting to sell to with that slacker kid.

There are plenty of reports that clearly show the opposite. I try to keep an eye on the circumstances. All I can say from my observations is that Windows works better on some PCs than others. Also, the less wetware error the better. Beginners are more prone to crashes if only because they more quickly clog their machines with malware out of ignorance.
All doable in Mac OS X Tiger dude. Spell checking has been system wide since MOSX 10.2, before XP was released.
Really? I will leave that to being a matter of taste. I am no fan of the Dock, to be honest. But I find the task bar to be more annoying.
Whenever I am using Windows around other people I always warn them about my swearing at it. I really resent a lot of the crap I have to 'tolerate' in Windows. I don't deal with user-hostility very well.
