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."

The biggest advantage of the GNU desktop is that it is free. It may not matter to you right now but in the long run you will be hurt by OS X. Your system will be deprecated, you will be forced to pay and upgrade, they will spy on you and sell your data. They will try to turn your desktop into money for them, sooner or later.
