I'm a developer who switched...

... from Linux to OS X :)
I bought a macbook because honestly there is no laptop that comes close. And I found out that I have a GUI that "just works", and if i need it I have a full unix command prompt available. It does need macports or one of the equivalent projects, but you can have all your command line stuff on OS X too.
That was in 2010. In late 2012 i made a hackintosh out of my desktop. Now considering getting a high end iMac or a Mac Pro :)
Note that I still work on linux or multiplatform projects. For whatever I can't do directly I have a couple of VMs.
