You overlook a world-class user-friendly professional industrial-strength Unix© Operating System.

Uh huh. As I said, I have a PowerMac G5 Dual at home as well. It's not all that and a bag of chips. I would rate it as good as windows for most stuff, not as good as windows for some other stuff, and better than windows for the one thing I've used it for photo editing, but not $700 better. We aren't photo professionals.

Do you do routine maintenance on the OS X ?

I would recommend once a month repair permissions with the Disk Utility.

In addition repair the disk's inodes in a
standalone environment with Disk Warrior.

Doing those once a month will keep Unix© running smoothly.
