Preaching to the choir in most cases I suspect;)

then get off this list and leave us to our playthings. or better yet,
spend time critiquing the current state of the "out of the box"
experience with the people who **actually provide**  the out of the
box experience.

Well technically this list did, not to long ago, scare away someone that was
impactful in those sorts of decisions;)

Control your workflow.  I am on OS X now for most of my work, however I
can't set up the same workflow I could on Linux, and what I can do is not
nearly as easy or quick on OS X.  I could control my desktop and
applications much smoother and faster with some simple customizations on
Linux than I ever could on OS X.  I could tweak the visual aspects much more
easily to that I was happier looking at my screen(Yes I do have a soft spot
for eyecandy, and OS X doesn't come close to filling it).
