    Every PC laptop should have it. Every time I try to fix someone's laptop I do it and it doesn't work. But they all seem to have that idiot scroll edge on the right and tap to click turned on!

    I need to do this 2 finger scrolling. I hate the edge scroller... haven't messed with the settings though.

    So what makes you think the same person would be able to use a MAC?

    My point is that it wouldn't be any harder for her to learn how to use a Mac...

    If we are talking from someone who has never used a computer. Sure.

    If we are talking transfer from PC to MAC. I disagree.

    I've seen it from both sides. There's not much difference.

    To me, that's kind of the point. There isn't a difference. Macs aren't inherently simpler or more intuitive or easier to use. They aren't more difficult, either, unless you've been using a PC for a decade and it's all you know. However, either system requires a substantial amount of learning to use.

    Desktop user interfaces are pretty mature at this point. It makes sense that they are so similar nowadays. Especially as Apple and Microsoft have a patent sharing agreement on desktop OSes.
