    Windows can look like aqua all it wants... but it's still Windows. Mac can look like aqua all it wants... but underneath it's got Quartz driving the aqua interface and BSD/Darwin/Mach/whatever driving the core OS. Windows will never beat out such a robust set of "open" technologies.

    What I hate about OS X/Aqua

    It's too freakin big. All of the buttons and window margins are huge, major loss of effective screen real estate when using X. Hopefully OS X will skin up nicely so people who value function over form can trim down the fat.
    Otherwise X is sweet.

    OS X is meant to be run in 1280 x 1024 resolution on a 19''+ monitor. Then it looks good (proportionate).
