"Locking you out of BSD"? Ok, I'm no fan of the MacOS GUI, but that it locks you out of the underlying OS is simply not true. It gives you precisely as much access as I'd expect to see on any other Unix system, which quickly becomes evident if you see any advanced user using MacOS X for a while.

It's the kind of functionality I would like to see in RISC OS, and is a far cry from putting an OS on top of such an outdated system as DOS.
