Mac OS distributions are always appreciated for their ease of use. Ever since the first version, Apple Inc. concentrated on GUI based navigation so that layman users can use the product without learning crazy, technical commands. This attractive GUI sits on top of a Unix core which is best known for its stability and security features. Mac distributions run on hardwares produced by Apple Inc itself, therefore there is a perfect synchronism between the functioning of hardware and software which is a plus point.
