    I can't prove it one way or another because no such calculation exists as far as I know. But it's not true, and I know that it isn't because if that little software existed for the Mac it wouldn't have even 5% of the market.

    And realistically, even it it were true (I'm speaking theoretically, since it isn't), you're talking about minutiae like having 25 different word processors available for the PC versus just 4 for the Mac (not real numbers) or 17 bittorrent clients for the PC versus 3 on a Mac. There are more than enough apps to go around for Mac users even though more individual apps are developed for Windows than for OS X (which is true, just not near the ratio you suggest).

    you do that
    the path is

    APPLICATIONS
    UTILITIES
    TERMINAL

    "Beneath Mac OS X's easy-to-use Aqua graphics interface is a robust and complete UNIX operating system called Darwin. Darwin is based on open technologies such as FreeBSD, Mach, Apache, and GCC. Mac OS X comes with hundreds of powerful UNIX applications already installed, and Terminal is your access to them."

    "All the standard UNIX commands, tools, and scripting languages are included in Mac OS X. If you are an experienced UNIX user you will feel right at home. To learn more about UNIX on Mac OS X, go to the Apple UNIX website." http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/unix/

    Changing to a different shell

    The Terminal application lets you use a command-line interface to control the underlying BSD UNIX operating system. In each Terminal window, a "shell" program takes your keyboard input and executes the commands.

    Mac OS X includes these shells: /bin/bash (the default shell), /bin/csh (tcsh), /bin/zsh, and /bin/ksh. You can install and use different shells if you wish. A system administrator can change your shell default or you can specify a different shell to use in Terminal Preferences.
