Apple Mac OS X Turns 10! + Steve Jobs 2000 Keynote Video
Mac OS X, pronounced mak oh es ten, turned ten today! Travel back in time to see Steve Jobs introducing Mac OS X for the first time ever, at Macworld San Francisco 2000.
Mac OS X 10th Birthday!

Apple CEO Steve Jobs Introduces Mac OS X at MacWorld 2000
30 minute, three part video. Travel back in time to see Steve Jobs introduces the UNIX based (now UNIX-certified) Mac OS X:

Back to the Future
In contrast, Microsoft Windows zombies (aka PCs-might-seem-slightly-cheaper drones) take note.
It took Microsoft almost 2 years to copy Mac OS X with Windows XP. It took Microsoft almost a decade of copying Mac OS X to result in Windows 7 to almost-catch-up to the Apple operating system.
While Apple is working on the next new thing and improvements to current products, there is no guarantee with Redmond. Microsoft could discontinue a brand new weeks-old product abruptly (Windows Phone Kin), or Redmond could release another price-gouging $400 awful Windows Vista at any time.
Thus, this is a great time to get a Mac: Why your next PC should be a Mac.
