Anybody use it? Is it like the X version of the GDI, or is it more low level like directx? I'm thinking about getting a mac, and wondering what it is going to be like to develop on it.

I think it, at least, has low level parts:

Quartz's windowing services provide low-level functionality like window buffering, event handling/dispatch as well as dynamically creating the translucency and drop shadow effects found in the Aqua user interface.


btw, I haven't used Quartz yet, but I'm planning on learning it
