I agree, Macs are great. I only boot into Windows for games. I'm delighted with Steam's attempt to move to Steam OS / Linux, but they have a long way to go. Once games are more widely available for either Macs (not likely) or Steam OS / Linux, there won't be any need for a very large number of people to ever use Windows.

Actually, based on your comments and the findings of numerous other studies, it sounds like education has a lot to do with motivation, and relatively little to do with forms of education delivery. Look at the history of education, do you see enormous growth spurts tied to the printing press, movies, radio, home video, the internet? In as much as they make information more readily available they increase education. But it's not like there's some magic mode for learning. How many people would sit and watch a Disney film on Differential Equations, no matter what the production values were or how applied it was, etc.? So yes, whatever we can do to make information available is good, but we should stop thinking that we're going to come up with a magical sugar coating that will make everyone want to learn everything.
