The biggest feature is probably the one least talked about, and that is Gatekeeper. It's pseudo-iOS-like, because by default it only allows apps from "identified" developers to run on your system, but when you try to run an unsigned app it lets you know how to turn it off. It should be noted that "identified" does not mean App Store only, though obviously App Store developers are "identified".
And if Gatekeeper is on it is still possible to start an unsigned app by right-clicking it and selecting "Open" from the context-menu. Doing this once will mark it as "safe".

The truth is, Apple is a marketing based company even more than Microsoft is.
However Microsoft spends nearly thrice the number on marketing.

But they do. The Xbox 360 is locked down and software can only be installed if it passes certification from Xbox LIVE.
or [Apple is] a PR company, more concerned with convincing you to buy something, than with the actual nature product.
Apple only spends about a third of the marketing budget that MS expends.
I want two or three mouse buttons.
If you click the touchpad with two fingers instead of one, you will get the "secondary click". Thats Apple's fancy name for a right click.
