I would disagree on that. Aqua is much more polished than X11.
But if you need to run an X11 app on Mac OSX, you can easily do it.
Apple provides its own X11 based on XFree 4.3, you can also choose
OroborosX, or Xorg through Fink. I quite often run X11 apps from
SUSE 9.2 box with display on iBook.

I don't know how to do multiple desktops in Aqua, but Expose compensates
for that lack. Apple's Terminal is nice.

Believe me, you won't regret.
