>> I immediately navigated my web browser to www.apple.com and was in for another huge surprise. Apple had recently released a new operating system called Mac OS X based on one of my favorite OSs, FreeBSD. I couldn't believe it.
I have seen this quote in various incarnations from many writers when they talk about Macs, and it never ceases to amaze me that OSX just "snuck up on them". Where were you for all the PR, news articles, columns, and hype?? I have never owned a Mac in my life, nor has any of my family or friends, but I was still well aware of OSX at least a year before its release. I can't imagine how I could have not known...the articles and screenshots were everywhere. You would think "self proclaimed geeks" would keep up on the news a little better.
