Response to: Mac OS X = change; people don't like change

Change isn't the only issue here! For starters, OS-X is downright slow. While Aqua is nice looking, it does little for the overall performance of OS-X. Apple should have released a dumbed down theme with OS-X for those people who can barely tolerate OS-X in it's current state. Secondly, there are compatibility issues. Almost every peripheral in my office is incompatible with OS-X. And while you can lay blame with whomever you want, the point remains that I'm not willing to go out and spend tens of thousands of dollars to replace perfectly good peripherals for the sake of running OS-X. Don't get me wrong. I like OS-X and use it on my home computer. And while OS-X is the future of Apple and has potential to greatly impact the Mac community, it will never see the light of day in my business until the myriad of speed and compatibility issues are cleared up.
