Yes, today, the average level of clue among Mac users is probably a
shade higher than amongst Windows users,

  Is this a joke? The reason people switch to macs is because they cannot
handle simple tasks. Isnt the main thing said by new mac users is 'it
just works' meaning 'I couldnt figure out windows' . The main users of
macs are liberal arts students and hippies .. and we all know the
technical level of these people.

You apparently haven't been around Macs recently.  *Many* technical people, 
*especially* Unix and security admins, have started using Macs because they 
provide all the functionality of Unix with a beautiful GUI on top.

Besides, I'll put the technical prowess of a liberal arts major up against 
the technical prowess of a computer science major *any* day, and spot them 
two full months to study.  CS majors can code like monkeys, but they don't 
have a clue how a computer works.  :-)
