Because of the grammar and sentence structure I'm not sure what you just 
stated, Glen.  As a Mac OS9 user who wishes he had the $$$ to switch to 
OSX, and open source software, I would like to be party to opinions by 
experienced  computer users, both pro and con.  Could you please repeat 
the enclosed statement, and this time, type slooowly?

Cheers,   Griz

Never mind!!!  After three tries I got it!  And .. I .. take issue with 
it.  The major reason for bringing back Steve Jobs was that he came with 
the NEXT package.  If I had to give a "flavor" to OSX, it would be 
BSD(NEXT).  To the best of my knowledge, what set OSX aside from other 
LINUX/UNIX clones was not so much the knobology of the OS but the 
programming that produced it.  Any Mac experts out there please correct 
me on this subject.

Cheers again, Griz
