I am not quite sure what you mean by > preference between front ends ? If you are referring to the choice between Mathematica 4.1 for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X, it is the difference between the kernels that is much more significant. As for my own experience: after I tried Mathematica 4.1 for Mac OS X (even a pre-release version) I could no longer even contemplate going back to using the classic one. Moreover, I found it hard to understand how I had managed to tolerate its (and the previous Mac versions') glaring faults for so long. Also, I do not think you need to tell Wolfram which version you want since (as far as I know!) all Mac users of v. 4.1 are entitled to both.
