Ars Technica has a nice rundown of the first three years of Mac OS X. I’ve been an OS X user for all three (plus the Public Beta period beforehand) — how time flies when you’re having fun!

Has it been three years already? A quick glance at the calendar tells us that the date is March 24, 2004, three years to the day after Mac OS X 10.0 began shipping. Join Mac.Ars in a trip down memory lane as we look at three years of Unix-y/NeXT-y/pinstripe-y goodness on the Macintosh.

iTunes: “Hurt Me…Hard (Armand Van Helden’s Gyro)” by Hard House Café from the album In to the Mix II: The 2nd Coming (1998, 5:52).
