So for those of you that do not know I recently switched from PC to Mac.
3 Years ago I would have laughed if anyone would have told me I would be doing this. Yeh, my first *real* programming experience was on Mac (albeit with Java as the language of choice), and I have used Mac’s in my past, but moving from Windows to Mac. Pah!
Oh my word, am I glad I did. In the words of John Newton “I was blind but now I see”: The whole computer experience is not meant to be this good is it? Where are the crashes, the hangs and those hilariously cryptic messages (yes many of them are non-understandable by geeks too)…
I am positive that I will be blogging Apple’s praises in the coming months. One of the things that had stopped me switching (or even consider switching) before now is that I am a power user. I don’t need the fancy GUI and the simple setup. I am a real life hairy hunter gatherer programming neanderthal. ROAR! Yeh… wrong. I am a power user, but why suffer unneccesarily? I can have all the frills that windows (even Vista folks) cannot do, and yet drop down to a unix shell and have all the intimate bash fun I want!
As my brother-in-law would say: “Why have pie when you can have cake?”
I love my Apple MacBookPro. fin.
