Additionally I just bought a MacBook, trying to get new ideas from Mac OS and looking what people like so much about it.
I bought a mac a few months ago, after several years of pc with windows and linux in varius flavours (ubuntu most of the time, but I've tryed others).
Just some thoughts:
+ I like mac os x GUI a lot... there are little details that make it very intuitive and beautiful.
+ I like the .dmg and packages approach (such as iphoto library, etc)
- WRT software instalation, I prefere the software store/repositories approach (as in SkyOS and many linux distros) rather than downloading and installing manualy (as in windows and mac os x).
- It took a while to get used to the dafault way some mac applications (such as itunes or iphoto) handle my (music/photo) collections, but in the end it turned out to be very useful.
- Last but not least, sometimes I feel a little bit without control of what the system is doing, as if os x did more for me than I would like it to.
Recommend that you try Quicksilver
There are several videos in youtube where you can see what it does.
It would be very nice to see something like it in SkyOS.
Hope this helps.
