Agreed.  When building your own PC Mac can't compete, nor do I think
they want to.  They have more control over what their OS wraps around
when they build the computers themselves.  This is M$'s own niche in the
marketplace (and probably Linux's as well) - ability to hot-swap
components of your computer easily at your control.
