"The gui differences between OS X and the Gnome and KDE desktops I'm used to are not overly significant."
This intrigues me, as one thing that stops me using Linux on a permanent basis is the GUI, in particular the way fonts are rendered. Yes, I know you can install Windows fonts and can fiddle with bytecode interpreters. Tried all that, but not a single Linux distro I tried (ten or so) can match the fonts in Apple or Windows computers (though MEPIS is not too bad). I know a GUI is more than fonts but this is a really big drawback for me, and I don't really understand why so few people complain about it and that no real work seems to be done improving this. Transparency, funky widgets? I don't give a damn, fonts are way more important if you don't want to hurt your eyes.
