Squeeze me?
How many programs does any one want to use?  What sort of software do you 
want?

Granted there is about twice as much software for PC across the board, but 
when you consider that this means you will end up *not* using 24,000 PC apps 
versus *not* using 12,000 Mac apps, I think you realize the comparison is 
meaningless.

All your arguments say is that you have not looked anywhere for any software.
