Apple I recently bought one of the new dual core PowerMacs. Having used the machine for a couple of weeks, I thought I would share some of my observations and feelings about it. First, let me get my biases out in the open. I have, for about four years, very happily used Linux on my desktop. Doing so has made me very comfortable with the UNIX environment in general, and with GNOME specifically. During that time, I have used OS X machines on a regular basis, so I am quite comfortable in that environment as well. Since I switched to Linux, I have not used Windows for anything more than the occasional bit of software testing or lab work, and generally feel quite uncomfortable with it. Thus, this article is very much written from the perspective of someone who finds OS X and Linux pleasing on principle. I implore the reader to make his own value judgments based on my comments.

I haven't slept in about thirty hours and I have the flu. I haven't even clicked on any of your links for hours, but I've probably been an idiot and an asshole, since interaction in meat space has made that fairly obvious that I'm on a roll. And despite my typical insistence that people not post crap here, I sort of browse my posts and I see probably don't meet my own standards of excellence.

You win. I'm an idiot. I probably haven't been anywhere near as coherent as I thought. I don't really add much value here, and I'm going to leave. I've probably posted a day's worth of complete rambling nonsense. Sad, really.
