otoh, there is much that we (in the free software world) can learn
from the way MacOS X presents things. Personally, I'm hoping
to see some of the graphical free software (esp config tools)
integrate some of these ideas into free software. Not a clone,
mind you, but just use of the ideas that are somewhat novel.
I'm also hoping that they don't get sued by Apple's legal department
if/when they do so.
