As a spoilt GNU brat, I am not really all that keen on the underpinnings of
OS X. But it works well, and has nice toys. I occasionally boot into it to
play with Safari, watch movie trailers, check out some UI stuff, or dink
around with iMovie.

I think you'll find that whatever OS X provides, it wouldn't matter anyway,
because many of us just like running GNUish Free systems that we're already
familiar with, and prefer to use/support the Free desktop projects like KDE
and GNOME (or far prefer things like pwm or ion that OS X really can't
compete with), etc.
