Saying that, doesnt make any electronic sense to me, or at least by reading it quick, since there is a wide variety of FW controllers, and motherboard manufactures in the market, It's like putting all PC manufactures in the same pot.. or saying that aple motherboard manufacuturing is much superior than any other motherboard or FW controller in computer world, which to be honest is hard to believe for me.. You might just be talking about personal experiences with poorly built FW controllers or PC motherboards, in fact most of the best controllers manufaturers make drivers for both OSX and Win (i.e. Adaptec)
Besides that, Doesn't apple build PCs, since intel swap?
I think the thing is that in non-apple-PC world ther is any kind of manufaturer, from bad to good, so you have to choose well, in mac world there is only one mufacturer, apple, and they better do things properly or mac users will suffer from it.. fortunatly I personally think they make good computers hardware-wise, not very silent but good anyway.
