Sorry I never intended it that way. What I meant is that Macs just happen to appeal to the Common John. And you're special, not a common john :-) .

The thing is, Mac OS X is a Unix system. It can thus do everything a Unix system can do, but it's harder because you start of with OS X installed instead of nearly nothing, which will make you change tons of stuff.

I agree with Kokopelli. Since this is a "commercial" Unix, Apple needs to keep the system as tight as possible, but they were smart enough to leave the options open to those who know a bit more.

So in answer to the original question: Mac OS X is totally flexible, but wasn't built with that in mind.
