What's missing from major Linux or any other FOSS distro right now over proprietary paid OS's is the polish factor, OSX is pretty darn polished but it's to the point where it's on rails. I tried using a Mac for a bit and while it was neat, seeing many scripts/commands I use crossing over, having to pay money for every single little thing I wanted to do that would otherwise have a full fledged/free version on Linux was horrible.
