If it just works, why did it need multiple DP releases and future point releases? If it just works, why have they kept making tweaks to Launchpad and Mission Control?


Those are tweaks to make it even more insanely great. If they left OS X as is, it's already perfect.

I wouldn't go that far. For example, OS X needs some work to be done in order to secure it. As is, it's not perfect.

I sure hope so. But I've met my fare share of what I like to call "Caged Apple Fans."

Do you really honestly believe any software is perfect as is? I sure don't.

Mac OS X is not perfect. Never has been, never will be.

I don't think anyone suggested Windows was perfect, either.

I use both and like both. There are things I need Mac OS X for and things I need Win7 for. Both have their pros and cons.

OS X just looks pretty and finished and consistent compared to Windows. Every single window in OS X looks the same, whereas you get all kinds of different UIs in Windows.

But when will Mac sales double?

When their prices halve.

So different colors is "all kinds of different UIs"?

Different colors, different themes, different shells, etc etc. I haven't looked too hard at what's available for OSX but a lot of them do tend to look very similar.

Not every single one (sometimes you get the crazy curveballs like the new iCal, Address Book, and GarageBand), but the UIs are definitely generally more consistent than in Windows.

I would love to have a Mac but I can't justify the price.
