The only data I have is that Mac users tend to own and use more software
than Windows users do, but I don't have a reference to support that so maybe
I just made it up.

As an expert Windows user, expert NeXTSTEP user, and expert Mac user, it's
my opinion that Macs ARE easier to use, day to day. I could be wrong, I've
been wrong before.
