Impossible to choose
Authored by: Makosuke on Jun 22, '04 10:23:51PM

As another commenter said, it's almost impossible to choose, since at least a half dozen of those are integral to my everyday satisfaction with OSX, and most of the rest I appreciate as well.

I personally had to go with Multitasking, since for me the difference between OS9's "one main task plus a low-resource background task or two" and OSX's "run as much as I want" paradigm is the difference between a functional computer and a computer that works exactly the way I've always wanted to work--with every spare moment something spends processing used to do something else, and with at least a couple of things going on at all times.

The UNIX core, stability, and fast user switching were all computing-life-changing experiences for me as well, so they all count as close runner-ups.

And where's the complete integration of multiple languages on that list! I use Japanese every day!
