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 canĀ“t stand when people make gross generalizations about the technical virtues of any platform. To me, nothing beats KDE as a great workstation, entertainment platform and development platform. Should I preach this from the rooftops on the hopes that somebody will follow me down the same path?

No, because it's not true: Xfce is better than KDE. Just kidding. ;)

I fully agree with everything you said in your post. You've brought up some excellent points, very well said.

I'm also using KDE, although admittedly it's not my primary choice for one major reason: it's a bit to heavy on resources (especially memory) for my computer and my actual usage. I was running CrunchBang (with OpenBox) but when openSUSE 12.2 was released, all those new versions of programs were just irresistible. I'll probably continue using it until the swapping starts driving me nuts (it's already getting annoying--having only 1GB RAM really sucks).
