by the way there was recent blog entry on the OSX vs Linux subject:
To directly quote from that blog:
"If 'UNIX on the desktop' is your goal, then that's great. We've got
work to do to get to the Just Works(tm) that OSX has. It's unfortunate
that so many OSS people don't realize that the goal was never 'UNIX on
the desktop', the goal is 'A Free desktop'."
At the end of the day it all depends on your personal opinion and goals,
and what you're looking for in an OS, and how you value freedom, open
source, etc versus the type of desktop your needs demand; and for people
on tight budget I'm sure the price of OS X versus the price of Ubuntu
can make a difference as well.
