Awesome interface, plays with windows, Unix back-end, HUGE developer community
Paying for dot version upgrades
I got my first (long-term) experience with OS X working at Trone. They wanted me to do more mac support, so I got an iBook with OS X 10.3 (Panther). I have been amazed with the interface. It’s built on BSD Unix, so it’s extremely stable. The user community is huge and very supportive. A lot of my keyboard shortcuts came straight over, and there’s very little that I can’t do on my mac now. For some reason, the web browsers seem to render pages a little slower than PCs, but I have a 2GHz PC and a 933MHz iBook and I can work fine on both (in fact, I feel like I’m waiting less on the iBook).
