Yeah, I'm a total moran.
My point is that it wasn't intuitive and I didn't enjoy it (hence the failed experiment comment). I put my money where my mouth is (so to speak) and when building a new computer I chose components that were OS X compatible specifically so I could try out a Mac. And yes, I have used a real Apple computer and there was nothing broken about my computer. Everything worked as it should - Bonjour, Time Machine, sleep (all common complaints when building a hack).
Good thing you can also right click and eject devices or delete files that way if it's too hard to figure out the dragging technique.
Yeah? Tell that to my father. Again, obviously not intuitive when he had to call me up so I could tell him that. FWIW he's an intelligent man with a successful business. The "intuitive Apple OS" is aimed at people like him who are not computer savvy and didn't grow up with them or have to use them.
Here's an example of functionality/intuitiveness: I installed Snow Leopard tonight and when I opened Mail for the first time, I entered my email address and password and it went out and found the exchange server and auto synched my mail, contacts, and calendar with three different programs, two of which weren't even open.
I admit that this is useful functionality. MS would probably be hit with another antitrust suit if they implemented this though.
