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."

Linux is one of the few cases where package management real works nicely, assuming all you need for your work is available as package.

And assuming all of the dependencies aren't broken of suffering compatibility issues.

And assuming you don't mind all the dependency bloat that is typical of most linux distros.

Generally speaking it works good though, yeah. I agree there.
