It's not at all silly, it's factual. You will have to go into this in some detail and demonstrate how this isn't just another...
Presumably you typed this whole post using only your mouse and its single button, avoid the use of your 104 button keyboard. We'll let others draw their own conclusion about your intelligence.

A Quicktime movie is a file. A PDF document is a file. More than that, unix allows you to access not only files and datastreams as files, but also hardware deviced are treated as files, simplifying the programming interface.
In my experience, there are many taks which cannot be performed at all with only a mouse. By limiting yourself to only the mouse, you have reduced the utility, and thus the value, of your computer. That is your loss.
Oh, but I do. Most version of unix have a graphical interface available if the user so chooses. Given the choice, which many other OSes do not really offer, people on unix choose to use a combination of text and graphical interfaces.
Unix has the best user interface. I can use a mouse when I want, but still have the shell available for my use. BTW, OSX is based on unix, in case you didn't know. Without Unix, there would be no OSX.
I have no problem making my Java applications look go on whatever platform I want them to. It is sad that you are only able to correctly code for a single tiny part of the market.
You are obviously too image concious. Usually this is a sign of psychological insecurity. I suggest you seek professional help.
My computer looks fine, even though the primary purpose of a computer is to compute. Perhaps you need to wake up and realise that there is far more to the world than image. No wonder you are so enraptured with graphical shells instead of the insides of the OS. You are obviously a very shallow person who is obsessed with looks, and will have difficulty in relationships since you haven't the foggiest idea about real substance.
Yes, Steve did put something very cool under the hood of OSX, which is to say he put the Mach kernel, based on BSD Unix, under the hood. OSX is unix. And in unix, everything is a file. Deal with it.
