I've got a comp sci degree and spent my life programming and managing windows-based machines...I hated macs too...until I got one. Sometimes doing it the hard way doesn't mean that you're smarter.
I am actually writing this post on a Mac (my wife's). It is simple/nice, but I like playing a little bit and trying out new things for which it was not developed for. I could go on and on about the mis-representations in their advertising too (I thought they didn't need drivers, but my printer did). The mouse still doesn't feel right, not sure how to minimize all windows at once, having toolbars not connected to the window you are working in just means you have to move the mouse farther and, for the life of me, I cannot get it to print to a 4.25 X 5.5 card.
On the other hand, if my job was to manage many computers (that weren't mine) I think I would choose Mac's to work with too.
To minimize all windows at once just push option while you click the yellow minimize button. And I agree with you on the annoyance of not having the toolbar connected to the window.
I always find the mac/pc debate kind of humorous but there is no problem with that. I use and own both and like them for different things, neither are that close to perfect in my eyes, but I do find myself spending less time "fixing" things on the mac (sometimes its a good thing and sometimes bad).
