I respect your opinion, but you are unfortunately stuck in the past and unwilling to open your mind to different ways of computing.
Linux is a good operating system in its own right. Don't stagnate it with your closed mindedness about what it is and what it should be. The same goes for Mac OSX. It may not be the right choice for somone like yourself, but anyone who lived through (and got over it) the days of command line only, and "mouse over selection" would be a little more open to what improvements in GUI can help me be more productive, even if I have to take the time to rethink how I work.

    I find that fairly offensive. I used Mac OS X and it made me less productive.

    Not everyone works the way I do and that's fine... but any "improvement" that makes a common task such as switching between windows take twice as long adds up to a huge disimprovement very quickly.
