To mess up a Linux box, you need to work at it; to mess up your Windows box, you just need to work on it.

Makes sense, however there are 10 possible answers at most. So if you do not use Mac OS X, simply do not vote.

 Speed?

I used Mac OS X when it first came out on some G4's at my local community college, I must say that it was pitifully slow. Of course, I dont know what the specs for the machines were, such as the ammount of RAM or what Graphics Cards were installed, but KDE is pretty quick on my old P3-733, 256MB and GF2 GTS card.

Hi,

I don't know, with which version of OS X you did make your experience. OS X got a speed boost from version 10.1 to 10.2 ("Jaguar") and another from 10.2 to 10.3 ("Panther"), but I agree, KDE is in general a little bit more responsible.

But you must see, that OS X has an other "window server". You have transparencies everywhere. You can have transparencies with Mosfet's Liquid an others, but I doubt they're faster than OS X. And look at the Exposé feature. It's really fast. I've seen the Exposé-clone for Gnome (Expocity) on a 1,4GHz Pentium-M. It was awful slow.

Because I use and know both systems (KDE 3.2 on my Athlon-900 and OS X on my Apple Powerbook G4), I think, the advantages of OS X are others:

- Consistent GUI (same Keyboard-Shortcuts for almost every application) and Human Interface Guidelines
- Good integration of applications (i. e. use music of the iTunes music app in the iMovie film app seamless)
- Good integration of cellular phones (sync with adress book and organizer app)
- excellent support for notebooks (powermanagement, WLAN)

I think, KDE/Linux lacks here, especially in the both last points, but I'm sure there will be good solutions in the future (kdepim 3.3, xfreedesktop).

 KDE on OSx

KDE actually runs on OS x because OS x is just FreeBSD with Apple's Aqua GUI on top.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
