Linux Linux is struggling on the desktop because it only has a small number of "great" apps, according to the Gnome co-creator. Miguel de Icaza, co-creator of the Gnome desktop, told tech journalist Tim Anderson at the recent Windows 8 Build conference "When you count how many great desktop apps there are on Linux, you can probably name 10," de Icaza said, according to a post on Anderson's IT Writing blog. "You work really hard, you can probably name 20. We've managed to p*** off developers every step of the way, breaking APIs all the time."

Mac OS X lacks a good file manager and window manager, so I'd say kwin and Dolphin or one of the many alternatives. BTW, pretending that Fink and X11 somehow makes the experience the same under OS X just isn't credible, as the user experience generally sucks.

Hell, OS X isn't even integrated with itself when you look at it from the POV of the command line.
