Mac OS X "Ever since I got the eeePC I've loved how easy it is to tinker with. Since I'm not a Linux guy, I dumped the Xandros preload and opted for Windows XP so I could use my EVDO USB datacard and blogging software easier, but I wondered could I install OSX on it? And, after trial and error - you can! The only problem is that the eeePC only supports SSE2 instead of the SSE3 that Leopard is coded for. Kind of a bummer, and will require some extra tinkering to coax the OS on the eeePC."

If I have a need to run software (especially if I am going to make my living from running such software), then I will obtain software that I am free to run, thankyou very much, without any reliance on the good graces of some other company.

End of story. Any other choice is business insanity.


Well, I admit that nowadays, good alternatives to most MS software are available. But that hasn't always been the case, and still FOSS for e.g. Visio (heavily used by my company) or Outlook/Exchange is not available.
