I used all of those. The console version of Vim was quite nice. Unfortunately, Apple's X11 implementation made AbiWord and especially OpenOffice.org nearly unusable.

I don't care if my widget sets don't all match perfectly, but when the fonts are as bad as they were in OO.o, it wasn't worth using.

    And will all the complaints of Linux widgets not matching I find it very irritating that OS X has UIs that vary from the one Finder uses, to iTunes, to Safari, etc...why don't they just standardize on the iTunes 'skin' and get rid of the horrid 'brushed' (read; brused) metal skin? Where is their consistancy? Don't get me started on all the 3rd party apps that break all the appl UI rules; give me Ubuntu's all in one Dapper look for the most consistant looking OS out there.
