After their OS technology was stolen from Microsoft in the 80s because apple failed to license it, everything went down hill. Mainstream consumers and businesses alike choose PCs due to their cheap price, and boring software so as to hinder creativity.
"Well apples still suck and they are slow and way overpriced," you may say. Well, then why is that the most discriminating computer audiences in the world, mainly video, graphics, and music production professionals, are on Macs, refusing to move to PCs?
Because Macs are better.
Take a look at Mercedes. They both have less than 3% of the automobile market, yet again, are purchased by those who can afford them and prefer the ultimate driving experience. Simply put, Macs are the Mercedes of computers, and the rest of you are the ones stuck in your shitty geo prisms and kea spectras and 1992 toyota corollas, who try to make them look nicer by putting on a set of pimped out rims.
And for the record, MS has been making its Office software for the Mac almost as long for the Mac as it has been for the PC. In fact, PowerPoint came out for the Mac nearly 2 years before it did for the PC.
MAC USER: "I wish PC users would just shut the fuck up and leave us alone. If you think Macs suck, fine. Go on ahead and believe what you want. But I know the truth"
Their latest and greatest gadget that's getting all the attention is, of course, the iPhone, which is basically comparable to any high-quality $150 phone, except it has "innovative" touch screen technology, and it sells for $600.
Apple couldn't quite figure out how to make an operating system, so they just stole the freeBSD kernel and repackaged a bastardized version of it as Mac OS X. It's funny that Apple brags that it's "Unix-based", since no one with experience in Unix would ever use a Mac.
Apple frequently runs "clever" ads. Although they've made a ton of them, all the ads boil down to how Windows has viruses and crashes all the time. Apple also have an enormous, cult-like fanbase that like to remind us of these things every five seconds. Apple fanboys are generally smug, annoying, and arrogant, despite the fact that most of them don't know jack shit about computers.
Windows User: "Windows has a wide selection of software and games, and a huge developer community."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT IT CRASHES AND HAS VIRUSES LOL"
Windows User: "My OS hasn't crashed since I had Windows ME. And AVG is a free program that keeps my computer secure."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT WINDOZE SUXX!"
Windows User: "Would you care to tell me about your Mac? I hear it doesn't have many tools for software developers, which are important for my work."
Apple Fanboy: "lolololol but windows sucks!!!11"
Windows User: "Did you know that a great amout of Apple software is made with Microsoft Visual C++?"
Apple Fanboy: "omg wtf is C++?"

While their operating system's market share may be significantly below that of Microsoft's windows, many still prefer to use Apple's computers and software, especially for graphical design and audio work.
Many people like to debate over the superiority of macs over pcs and visa versa, such people have no lives.
