So?  What do I need with XGL?  I can install open source software if 
I want, the cost is built into the price of a mac, and the kernel is actually
NOT closed.

But that's not why I don't use OSX.  I don't use OSX because of the 
hardware lock-in.  For my purposes, I need higher end hardware than 
OSX currently supports.
