Try it, you will find otherwise. The user interface works without
hassle. MacOS X comes with more standard utilities than does FreeBSD,
for instance procmail, fetchmail, sqlite3, Apache, php 4.4.7, ...

Not that I'm against your argument that OS X is a good system, but since when are 3rd party services standard utilities?

When they ship with the system and when you can get security patches for them from the vendor.

Things like BIND and sendmail are 3rd party services which ship standard with FreeBSD, although you do have knobs to not build them if you don't want them. Likewise, you don't have to install the OS X Server utilities or run a mailserver/webserver/etc if you don't want to.
