I suddenly came across this old post from 2004 in which I explained my early experiments in OS X. Now after being a hardcore OS X user for more than a year, I found how much the world has changed since. The Firefox is a really usable browser now and IM clients are up to date. I still hate iChat for no good reason. Maybe because I hate IM on the whole.
And guess what. My favorite OS X app is Terminal.
In fact OS X offers an intuitive interface that is very usable and hassle-free. I would call it a real productivity booster. Beside the interface, the OS itself is based on a mature BSD skeleton, and as a Unix fanatic and really enjoy poking around OS X.

I seriously urge you to switch to Mac if you care about your productivity and performance.
