OS X vs Windows XP comparison site

Found this on many of the Mac Advocacy usenet groups (i knew it from it's longer url...) as well as on a few PC news sites...

Is it no longer true Macs are easier than PCs? Has Windows XP finally caught up with (and maybe even surpassed) Mac OS X? Is Mac OS X just a pretty OS, but of little substance?

To get a little more clarity on this topic, Dan Pouliot decided to look at the 2 OSes - Mac OS X 10.2 and Windows XP - in depth, and cover usability issues such as networking, windows and keyboard controls, voice feedback and voice recognition, the Dock vs. the Taskbar, Find/Search, Help, and much more.

As Dan says.... "This shootout is narrowly focused on usability for creative professionals, so its conclusions may not be true in other work environments. I wouldn't be so bold as to try to compare X vs. XP in terms of every possible combination of software on the market. So take this shootout with a heavy grain of salt. "
