Apple The editors of ResExcellence.com, a popular Macintosh website and longtime Mac enthusiasts, have switched to Linux. "I've been making my living as Mac-specific developer for several years now... I was a true Mac die-hard," stated Bryan, who also runs a Mac software company, on his blog, "but the Macintosh community, with its bad attitudes and diva-esque nature, rained on my parade. Sure there were other reasons why I switched. But that was the tipping point."

After reading through the comments to the news post it seems that the - admittedly unjustly harsh - comments were out of frustration.

ResEx used to be a useful resource and very active, and the new owners apparently let it stagnate for 4 months.

Now, I'm not one of the users who come there regularly, but I do remember bumping into it from time to time, and I remember there was a whole lot of stuff on there that seems to be completely gone now.

That combined with a lack of any updates could probably cause most people to ignite, if they were casual users. I know I would have been disappointed (I would also have formulated myself properly).

It seems they didn't really have an idea of what the site was about and that almost killed it.

I just hope all the content is still available somewhere and that they will have the decency to restore it before "passing the poop".
