And there are problems (specifically, issues with drive corruption) that occur with surprising frequency on real Macs that Hack users can fix far easier than real Mac users. (I mentioned elsewhere that fixing drive corruption - which even OS X is not immune to - requires dropping all the way to the command line. There is no GUI-based fix for this issue - which all versions of OS X are vulnerable to. Worse, it's not the only problem that OS X has that requires CLI experience to fix. If you have any experience at all with a command-line (such as Linux or Windows, or especially BSD), there's surprisingly little different in the OS X CLI/terminal environment compared to BSD; however, despite that, it's something that Apple discourages.)
I'd love to know more about this. I have never had this issue nor have I heard about this. Is there a thread on the apple forums about this?
