yea people say that installing linux/bsd is better, but i at least get
pretty good hardware support for the base system, and if i choose to
just use osx, i can do all the usual web/flash/multimedia stuff without
the pain of making linux/bsd software work. also its just nicer to let
someone else use my laptop (friends and relatives) who probably don't
care about linux/bsd/dwm/gnome/kde etc...

given that osx is a certified unix system, its no better/worse than any
other *nix clone/derivative of your choice. and its probably best to
leave this topic out of the discussion.

i'm actually quite happy with how i have things setup right now, even if
there are still some minor quirks im neither pleased nor displeased with
osx's gui. i just happen to prefer dwm and x11 for my work stuff.
