I presume you were replying to me. I make no bones about the fact that I think Linux desktop distros are, on the whole, terrible. I started using OS X full time in 2007 after many years of noodling with System 6.x and 7.x, and Mac OS 8 and 9, while at the same time happily using Windows 2000 and then unhappily using Windows XP and Ubuntu. To me, OS X is the perfect desktop OS: strong UNIX underpinnings, excellent UI and usability, tremendous third party applications and (these days) generally good hardware support.
Don’t mistake my dismissal of Ubuntu and other desktop distros as dismissal of Linux and/or FOSS entire. Ubuntu is always my first choice for server deployment (a major UK brand is about to get a new website this week, powered by a web stack of my construction consisting of Ubuntu, Apache, nginx, MySQL, Xen [via AWS], etc). Homebrew gives me a well aggregated selection of GNU and open source tools. Et cetera.
But I’m typing this post on an Apple (wired!) keyboard, connected to an Apple MacBook Pro, running OS X 10.11, connected to an Apple LCD display, listening to an album (M83’s soundtrack to Oblivion) in iTunes, purchased from the iTunes Store. I have countless systems and devices running OS X, iOS, watchOS or tvOS. Yes, I’m heavily invested in the Apple ecosystem, but it’s because it’s a place I wanted to put myself. This is in addition to a couple of Dell Windows 10 machines, an HP Microserver running Ubuntu 12.04, and a Zoostorm PC running VMware ESXi 5.5 (which in turn is running a few Ubuntu 12.04 VMs and a pfSense router VM). I usually access these other systems from something running OS X.
I’ve rambled a bit, sorry, but I want to make it crystal clear that I approach any comments I make regarding OSes from a position of personal experience, and if any of those comments are of a pejorative nature, you and others shouldn’t take it personally. I may make pejorative remarks here and elsewhere about what I perceive as crappy desktop distributions, but they are never, ever of an ad hominem nature.
Except about the BV crew, because they are all completely bonkers.
