- iPod only supports iTunes, and iTunes DRM. It can not be used with any other media player, so you are locked on it.
- Apple DRM only works with iTunes+iPod, and not with any other hardware.
- Mac OS X runs only on apple hardware.
- You have to buy a 'pro' version of Apple Quicktime to watch full screen videos!
- Apple has a reputation to destroy companies who have made innovative apps (Sherlock, Konfabulator, etc). The companies are not even credited for it.
- They have way too many releases with really miniscule changes (Mac OS X 10.1 - 10.4 have very small changes in each subsequent release. Same with iLife. Its ridiculous how Apple makes you buy a new version of OS and iLife every year).
Now, as compared to them, windows locks you to use their software, but you are free to use any hardware. Also, they don't charge their users for Service Packs :D.
So who is more evil ?
