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."

he had me until "One app in particular - spotlight, blew me off the water, especially after having dealt on Linux with crappy clones like beagle (...)"

I dunno, a year ago? beagle? wow. no, just no.

There's a lot to talk about, there's the dysphoria that Canonical is doing something about (i.e leveraging ubuntu the operating system, instead of ubuntu the linux distribution consisting of random allotment of random software)

There's the whole "how do I make an app, where's the SDK?"

There's also issues concerning the inherent attitude when approaching OSS projects, not everyone knows of the aspects of being an good OSS komrade.

but beagle? commes de fuck down to reality.
