Marco Arment on switching to Mac OS X:
We don’t use Macs and Mac software because of the eye candy. We use them because of the design. Design and eye candy are very different — design is a combination of how it looks, what it does (and doesn’t do), and how it works.
Use a Mac for 6 months, and you’ll wonder why you ever used anything else.
I had not seen this post until today, and even though it is over a year old the above statement still holds true.
