"I have to disagree with your statement that there aren't that many users ons MacOS X"

Sorry - imprecise wording. I was only intended to speak of the relative numbers, and as you say, there are far fewer Mac users than others. If you take a subset of Mac users that know enough to answer technical questions, and/or those who participate in web forums, then you end up with a small number. It can be pretty hard to track down a Mac person when you have a support, QA or code issue.

Although I'm not a Mac person, from what I've read Safari has a lot to do with it as well - the bundled browser for the OS, and it's far ahead of IE.
