Mac OS X is. That's the best argument for using it. Why use a
second-best when you've got a winner on your hands?

And with Mac OS X you have it. I consult, and I'm in Windows-only
shops all the damn time with my PowerBooks. With the MS Office for X
suite and Connectix Virtual PC I can use the software that my clients
demand I use without sacrificing my beloved user interface or my
soul. And now, with my 800 MHz TiPB G4 I'm getting things done in a
Windows environment faster and more reliably than some coworkers with
their Win* machines.
