- Mac OS X "Mission Control" is an evolved version of traditional "workspace managers" (e.g xfce)
- Installed Crucial M4 128GB SSD and replaced DVD drive with HDD caddy + 750GB HDD
- 2012 MBPs were given a 7/10 repairability (as opposed to 1/10 for newer models w/ Retina)
- Great battery life and slim form factor
- Brand new MacBooks (especially with RAM/SSD upgrades) are extremely expensive
You might be wondering why you should even care about Mac OS X. Before disregarding me as an "Apple fan boy", I think it is important to consider that I had a very negative opinion of Apple products prior to working as an IT Professional. Additionally, my view of certain Apple products are still negative (e.g Apple TVs / iPads being nearly impossible to manage in an enterprise environment).
If you are afraid of change, perhaps Mac OS X is not for you. However, if you haven't tried Mac OS X lately and you are capable of learning a few Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts and touchpad gestures, I think you would be able to improve your workflow considerably.
