OSX is an interesting case but at the moment it is still an infant. I look
forward to seeing what happens with it as you are correct, it is very
consumer oriented. To put it another way, it is a chance for *nix to show
off its normal user wings if it has any. People who would get off Windows
because they have a viable *nix alternative have this option now though
there is still a discrepency in available commercial packages which I guess
could cause an issue. 


Let me choose if I even want a browser loaded thanks!

Well, Mac OSX is a fully consumer *nix. Can you say that Mac users tend to
be " already knowledgeable with its workings or people who WANT to learn the
details using it"?

I am not so sure about it.

BTW, on Mac OSX, by default the root account is *disabled*. All
administrative tasks are done with 'su/sudo'.
