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."

Yes, I can understand why you feel that way and more people have this same opinion.

For me Tiger also holds a special place. It was solid and no nonsense.

Each time I upgrade to a new OS X version I'm
disappointed at first, but after a while I start to get used to it. When I use a Mac with an older version of OS X I realise I'm missing features I got used to.

But I agree Tiger was solid and newer version of OS X seem less "whole", some things feel like add-ons or plugins.
