well there are actually not a lot of differences in the things that you can do, its just a lot of differences in how you do them and how well they work. Microsoft has really copied apple to the point where they have most of the same things, in my opinion though the things in Vista dont work nearly as well. the OSX user experience is overall much more enjoyable

Mac OSX runs a Unix FreeBSD type operating system. It is very stable and a great operating system as far as stability goes. Microsoft Vista is a new product that has quite a few bugs that really need to be worked out. If you get frustrated with bad performance and bugs, the Mac OS is the way to go. If you are going to Microsoft route, use XP while Microsoft works out all the bugs with Vista.
