OK, enough creative criticism. Time for what I like best. UI, icon look and feel. Overall speed may not be there but I like the overal capacity. i.e. fewere slowdowns than alternative OS'. No Crashes. A few hangs easily killed, only "needed" to restart due to performance twice in 6 months. iTunes and iPod integration and unparalleled, the CD buring is quick and easy too, though no CD-text I like the Dock as well as the start menu. The Mac experience has made computing fun again. I like Firewire. Quality and presentation of hardware. SOHO netowrkign as easy as pie. Wireless networking setup way ahead of competitors. Though far from finished, I really like Safari and it's bookmark management.
