I dislike the kludginess of package management on OS X [1], and it is far less well-supported in terms of buildability of Open Source software, plus the software I work on day-to-day is not supported on OS X, so I prefer to use a variant of Linux which is at least closer to supported (and tends to involve a lot less screwing around to make work). Oh, and the filesystem sucks.

[1] You can choose one of several, that sort of glom on top of the OS, but it's nothing like the elegance of, say, Fedora, where /everything/ including all parts of the OS gets managed through one package management system (rpm), and you can do 99% of what you need to do through yum, which makes life even more wonderful. Installing stuff on my Mac feels like such a step backwards.
