OSX is an awesome OS. I think the popularity of Macs will only increase in the next 5-10 years, so more apps for OSX will be available then. I just hope that Apple can learn from the Microsoft model a little bit and vice versa
I guess that's my problem. 2008 is basically 2003 plus a few new things. It's not bad, but it's not great either. 2007 changed the interface a lot, and if you don't take the time to learn how the new interface works, it can be a little frustrating. But once you know what you are doing, you can do things like 40% faster than in 2003. I wouldn't all it dummy proof. They actually added a lot of new features.
