While I definitely believe that Mac users are way better using MacTeX
rather than generic UNIX installer, I would consider Mac users as a special
group of UNIX users (in contrast to generic UNIX users) rather than
Indeed, TeXLive and MacTeX comes with many shell executables which do not
have (at least at the moment) Mac-GUI. F.e. pdfcrop. The trouble with many
MacTeX users currently is that they do not consider themselves as UNIX
users and they truly believe that TeXShop = TeX (as many Windows users
believe that WinEdit = TeX).
PS. I know, Peter, that you know better than this.
