Actually, I thought the same as you until I spoke with parents of a friend
that 'met' OS X and 9 simultaneously and preferred OS X because they had
much less trouble understanding it all and getting it to work.
Now this is a mystery to me as well, but maybe we have just a hard time
because we're so used to the classic Mac OS...
