Apple "In twenty odd years of working with computers, I never owned an Apple computer. Frankly, until OSX, I was never interested. But the BSD underpinnings of OSX got my attention. The Mac finally got a "real" operating system. It was interesting enough that several years after it debuted, I purchased my first Apple computer on eBay, a Mac Mini, to dig a little deeper into the OS. Not only did Apple do something right with OSX, but it was smart marketing to introduce a cheap Mac that worked with PC hardware. It is squarely aimed at Windows switchers and the mildly curious like myself. I would never have considered springing for a full-blown iMac or iBook as a learning exercise, but a used Mini fit the budget."

You should check out Desktop Manager. It gives you multiple desktops, like a proper unix system has. In my default setup, I have six desktops; one for email, one for browsing, three or four for terminals (9 or 12 terminals generally in use), and maybe one for iTunes. It's really nice to be able to lay out ones desktops geometrically and not have to constantly rearrange windows.
