OS X Ain't Linux

I figured that it had been so long since I'd done anything interesting with Linux that I wouldn't notice any differences. But I do. I notice when gcc isn't installed by default. (What?) I notice when I have to create the root account myself. (Huh?) And I notice when "traditional tools such as adduser do not work as you might expect". (Translation: adduser doesn't exist.)

So (a) I guess maybe my Linux isn't quite as rusty as I thought, and (b) my idea of what it means for something to be a Unix OS is changing.

But not like I'm having second thoughts or anything. Oh no.
