Mac OS X has several advantages over Windows. These include:
-Mac OS X's Aqua UI takes up less system resources than Windows's Aero UI.
-Mac OS X has better security (though it's by obscurity) than Windows and you are much less likely to get your Mac infected than a PC.
-Mac OS X has a simple, easy-to-use interface perfect for Technophobics, Kids, and Geeks alike. It's easy enough for the home user, and powerful enough for the programmers.
-Mac OS X has the iLife and iWork suites by Apple which work beautifully and integrate with each other (something you can't say about PC equivalents). All the programs in OS X work flawlessy and invisibly together, making everyting from E-Mailing to making a Home Movie DVD a snap.
-Mac computers overall last longer (in years) than Windows PCs, and they can be sold on eBay for a big portion of what you paid for them. (Sometimes up to 3/4 of what you spent on it can be gotten back by selling it)
-If you need to run a Windows program, you can run Boot Camp on all Leopard Intel Macs and install Windows on your Mac. When you need a Windows program, just reboot into Windows. When you're done, you can reboot back into Mac OS X. You can even run Mac and Windows applications at the same time with software like VMWare Fusion or Paralells.
-Contrary to popular belief, Macs can run many games out for PC without the need to use Boot Camp, Paralells, or VMWare Fusion. However, most developers don't actually make the games for Mac in the first place, and it can take 1-2 years from the game's release for PC for a 3rd party developer to make it for Mac. Many developers are making games for Mac now, and Blizzard has always made their games for Mac.
Some games you can play on Mac without Windows are:
-World of Warcraft
-Age of Mythology
-and more. Check out Apple's directory of Mac games here:
You may also download Steam which has over 100 games for Mac OS X such as Half-Life 2 and Portal.
Some disadvantages are:
-Macs can't be upgraded. This isn't a concern for the average home users, who probably don't upgrade their PCs anyway.
-Mac cost more, but as i have said above they last longer and can be resold for more than Windows PCs. (I have a 1998 iMac and I can run Mac OS X Panther 10.3.9 from 2005 on it and it runs just fine. Great for quick web browsing or listening to music in the kitchen.)
Mac OS X is an operating system released by Apple Inc. It is designed for Apple branded computers, which is why you will never see a Dell, or an HP computer run Mac OS X. There are only two important versions of Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server, and regular Mac OS X. Mac OS X server was designed for servers, while regular Mac OS X was designed for most computers. The current version of Mac OS X (10.6) is named Snow Leopard.
Mac OS X is one of the major releases of operating systems from Apple Inc. It features a low level Mach_kernel, underlying Unix OS, a 3D graphical user interface. Mac OS X can only be installed on computers made by Apple Inc. Recent versions of Mac OS X include: Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Starting in Mac OS 10.5 an automatic backup utility called Time Machine is available. The current version is Mac OS X 10.10 and an early release version of Mac OS X 10.11 is available to install.
Macintosh ("Mac") computers, manufactured by Apple Inc., use Mac OS X (the 'X' is a Roman Numeral, and is pronounced "ten"). The current version of Mac OS X, introduced in October 2007, is Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard," currently at revision 10.5.5 (at this writing, November 2008). Past versions of Mac OS X include: Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" - introduced in April 2005Mac OS X 10.3 "Panther" - introduced in October 2003Mac OS X 10.2 "Jaguar" - introduced in August 2002Mac OS X 10.0 and 10.1 - introduced in 2001Mac OS X Server 10.0 - introduced in 2000
Mac OS X can only be installed on Apple hardware so Vmware is unable to support Mac OS X on anything other than a Mac by running, for example, a virtual installation of Mac OS X Server on a standard Mac OS X machine. Conversely Vmware's Fusion allows the running of Windows, and other operating systems, on an Intel Mac running Mac OS X.
The 4 Applications that were released were: 1. iTunes 2. iMovie 3. iPhoto 4. iDVD All of these were created to run on OS 9 until OSX came out.

You cannot without erasing your hard drive and installing Mac OS 9 from scratch. Even then Mac OS 9 may not run on modern Mac hardware because Mac OS 9 needs the ROM chip to boot. Modern Mac OS X hardware uses EFI to boot the system instead of a ROM chip to boot. Mac OS X v10.0 - Mac OS X v10.4 support Mac OS 9 applications and can run them, you just need to install the Mac OS 9 compatibility program which can be found on the Mac OS X Install CD.
