Mac OS X: It just works. Darwin BSD underneath, mostly luxury on top. The upside is beauty, quietness, control, and stress-free existences. The downside is that it isn’t a business plan for computer consultants and virus removers.
Actually totally untrue on the consulting side. I make great money helping people with their Macs. It’s not the same sort of issues I would be dealing with on a Windows machine and the people are SO much kinder and more creative, but Mac users still need help every once in a while.
