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."

Key bindings

It's interesting that he mentions being impressed about OSX having Emacs-style key bindings by default. In Windows, you can use AutoHotKey to define whatever key bindings you want, in any app you want. In fact, I use it to map the same shortcut keys for every app I use, so I never have to memorize different shortcut keys for different apps ;)

Well, that's just one of the many things it does. If I didn't have this in OSX (or Linux), it would be a deal breaker for sure.
