i've promised not to bash any operating system...

... still, we apple users have much more proprietary on our system than 
just a WM, we have no package manager for the mostly used programs and 
have to download our packages from obscure websites.

i'm an apple user 8 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week...

and yes, there is more open source than the bsd roots in os x, but there 
is also more things that are proprietary than just the WM...
and yes, there are fink and ports... but who uses it? (beside you and me...)
and yes there are some sites where it is somehow safer to download 

imo, my point still stands: systems really based on free software help 
you install more free software. this is not true for apple and 
microsoft's systems.
