now this is hardly a fair review of osx. 'settings' are *always* buried
until you've learned the os, which you clearly hadn't when you worked on
this box. admittedly, its a very pretty os and fueling that takes a fair
bit of system resources, but its a client os (regardless of apple's
wouldbe-server xserves), so why not make it pretty? real men can admit to
liking attractive guis, imho.
