Mac OS X "A little more than an year ago I wrote my rant post The Linux Desktop Experience is Killing Linux on the Desktop and for the first time in 8 years I wasn't a desktop Linux user anymore. I spent about a month wrestling with Windows 7, but let's face it - Windows is ill suited for professional Ruby programmers like me (and it's ill suited for most programmers, except maybe Java & .Net I guess). Anyways, it was never my intention to stick with Windows - I was just doing my Mac due diligence. Now with 1+ year of OSX usage I'd like to share a few things about my experience thus far with you."

Apple's Video layer. That alone is better than anything on windows, Linux, or BSD land. OSX has a lot of things which make it nice, but for me it's two things, the Video layer, and the single GUI API that Apple basically forces you to use. It's nice having all my apps look the same.
