With OS X, I think Apple has hit it square on (not that I don't have my list of gripes).
And it certainly beats the pants off Windows, both with its GUI and the fact that it's a *nix variant.
In what way is it better than Windows Desktop? Speed/Performance, Visually, ??
What about the software availability for OS X? Has it caught up yet?

Some good points from everyone. 2 questions.
2. Has there been any mention of OS X being ported to x86?
