Mac OS X "A little more than an year ago I wrote my rant post The Linux Desktop Experience is Killing Linux on the Desktop and for the first time in 8 years I wasn't a desktop Linux user anymore. I spent about a month wrestling with Windows 7, but let's face it - Windows is ill suited for professional Ruby programmers like me (and it's ill suited for most programmers, except maybe Java & .Net I guess). Anyways, it was never my intention to stick with Windows - I was just doing my Mac due diligence. Now with 1+ year of OSX usage I'd like to share a few things about my experience thus far with you."

"I will say one thing which is an objective truth: I will not give any of my hard-earned money to a company run by assholes who believe in software patents and use litigation to kill competition.

Is it OSX you hate or just anything Apple-related? Being so emotionally attached to a company seems like a massive waste to me but hey, if that's what turns your crank....
"

I think you are mostly right, but I don't see how his last point isn't valid. Two things:

1. Have you ever heard the word 'boycott'? It is a perfectly valid way of action against immoral companies.
2. Isn't Apple all about emotional attachment anyway?...
