Maybe due better  HW support ? Some graphic card  use non free drivers
even under  Linux. And MAC OS  X relies on Darwin  that is distributed
under a GNU GPL compatible license.

The big problem  in Mac OS X  is that cp and othe  file system related
utilities are broken since they do not consider multi-fork files.
