Mac used to have a very clear lead in this respect; today that lead has
shrunk enormously.  If that's all one does with the machine, the Mac is
probably still a better choice; but if the machine must serve other
purposes as well (accounting, and so on, as a small-business or home
machine might), Windows again has the advantage.

The Mac has a reputation as a computer for people who profess not to
like computers, especially artists.  Ever notice that just about
everyone in the movies is using a Mac instead of a PC?
