I asked this question on Ask Different:
It was closed as not constructive by a moderator:
This question is not a good fit to our Q&A format. We expect answers to generally involve facts, references, or specific expertise; this question will likely solicit opinion, debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.
I realize the point of closing certain questions that are broad and solicit a lot of opinion or debate. Besides a few "me too" answers at the bottom, and the one horrible "viruses" answer, there was a lot of good answers to this question.
The reason I am asking is because those good answers, specifically the one I accepted, would be absolutely beneficial to Windows power users that are considering a switch to a Mac.
So, I am concerned if this question will eventually disappear, and this great info from a few users will be lost and of no benefit to future users. The reason I asked the question, was because there wasn't any other questions that covered the topic except this one: Good resources for those transitioning to Mac OS X from Windows. However, the highest voted answer on this question just links to the beginner Mac video tutorials on Apple's site. Hardly the type of useful information that a power user would be looking for. The good answers on my question included valuable information that I had been unable to find from any other source.
And was this question really not constructive, or did it just suffer because of a few overzealous users that had to get their .02 in? I tried to make it as specific as possible, so that there wouldn't be a lot of general debate and opinion, but that people would answer with facts, references, or specific expertise using both platforms.
