Indeed. I was visiting a friend recently, who uses Windows on a dialup connection. His latest problem was that his antivirus software had so many updates, downloading them was tying up the phone line for lengths of time that the other people in the house found unacceptable.

I have an old iBook that I would consider donating to him. The problem is that my friend is a composer, and uses a seriously expensive piece of music notation software for which the publisher doesn't offer cross-platform licensing. Software switching costs are a major issue too for a lot of people - that's what kept me away from the Mac for a long time.
