Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Nice to know I'm not the only one that goes "Booting? Why?" because i haven't booted in ages, even my little EEE with a HDD wakes at around 20 seconds and that is with a lousy 5400RPM HDD. I can't wait until after the holidays when I'm gonna grab one of those after XMas sale 128Gb SSDs and drop into it, I'm sure it'll be amazing.

I tried Linux for over 5 years before finally giving up, everything is just too much in flux, from the DEs to the subsystems it seems like every other day somebody on a dev team tweaks something and causes breakage on updates. My XP box in the shop has been running for 8 years now, 3 service packs and who knows how many patches and not a single broken driver, not one,whereas every time I turned around some dev was tweaking something that killed Pulse or trashed my WiFi under Linux.

Really wish it weren't so, especially with the trainwreck that is Win 8 coming out this month, but even as lousy as Win 8 is at least you can update without breakage. maybe in 5 years they'll finally settle down and stop the constant fiddling with the guts in Linux...nah.
