First off, you can't install OS X, you have to spend at least $500 (more if you need a monitor and keyboard, which is a probability) on a new computer. Secondly, Windows is hard to navigate for the older amoung us (I know, I've had to help my grandmother) because it is hard to see (all the blues run into eachother on XP), and also it gets viruses/spyware/adware like no other (especially when inexperienced users are checking email and spam) because people write most virii for it. SkyOS could get no virii, looks very easy on the eyes, and it is installable on that old Compaq you have lying about somewhere from 1997 so only costs $30. That, to me, is much better than Windows or OS X.
