How long have you used it? I mean OS X, I felt that way when i first tried it. I still don't use it often, I guess I could say I bought the laptop for its looks and firmness. Anyways you could see http://www.youtube.com/user/SoldierKnowsBest
. He shows you some cool things to do and use, if you let it get into you. So there is more of a option for things.
I like it mostly because of its iphoto (avg person such as yourself) is way better then windows photo er thing. and garage band. I like the stacks also, but i still go into windows 7 now. I hate not being able to maximize at times. It just takes time to get used if your coming from a different side. like manual transmission (windows) auto trans (mac). One just has more options like you said. (no offense to everyone who drives a auto trans*)
