you aren't required to keep all 6 GB of blockchain history unless you are mining. It just so happens that the official bitcoin client does keep the entire 6 GB blockchain history. You are welcome to use any non-official client since the protocol is 100% open source.

And than apple waltzed in with the same "there is no option 1, trust us" model with iOS, and while it hasn't been perfect*, it is certainly a million times more secure out of the box than anything Microsoft has accomplished.

*apple is a bit too draconian in what they do and do not allow in the app store (porn and bitcoin right off the top of my head) and there are still enough security holes that advanced users can still force option 1 by jailbreaking/rooting through exploits.
