Some reasons why Mac OS X rocks

Installation was totally painless. It actually manages to do what I thought was impossible—it puts a cohesive Mac-like UI on top of a UNIX box.

The e-mail client is usable. I’ve tried to wean myself off of the Eudora habit many times over the years; the big E has been showing its age in many ways.
