Mac OS X "OS X is full of little design touches that have redefined what people expect from a personal computer, and which complement Apple hardware. In fact, you can't (legally) install the operating system on anything but a Mac, so the two are forever entwined - and that gives Apple advantages that other computer manufacturers simply don't have. Join us as we explore the world's most beautiful operating system and find out how Apple created it." Slightly nauseating hyperbole aside (I find Mac OS X bland and grey thank you very much), it's an interesting article.

"[OS X] gives Apple advantages that other computer manufacturers simply don't have. With Apple's latest MacBook Air, for example, you'll find special keys on the keyboard that link specifically to new functions in OS X Lion, such as Mission Control"

Special keys to launch applications? No! Such innovation! Surely it takes the brilliant minds of Apple to figure this stuff out; such keys could not possibly have been on every garbage "multimedia keyboard" since 1997?
