Apple It seems that some well-known users are switching from MacOS to Linux, often after a lifetime of involvement with Apple's products. From Tim Bray's blog: "[...] as I stood in the Apple store last weekend and drooled over the beautiful, beautiful hardware, all I could think was how much work it would take to twiddle with the default settings, install third-party software, and hide all the commercial tie-ins so I could pretend I was in control of my own computer. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and to my eye Apple isn't beautiful anymore."

I couldn't agree more, it's one of my main reasons for switching a lot of my daily stuff from Windows and Linux over to OsX; same open source apps and open formats but in a better (for me) OS environment.

sorry, didnt mean to go off on a rant especially in regard to a simple statement you made. If I could figure out how to edit my post I would probably delete it. Whew time to climb down off my soapbox and go take a nap or something. Linux isn't perfect, especially some of the apps could use some re-working. Maybe even the DE could use some improvemnts. Sounds like my car ;) but just like my car, I have a freedom with it, I am in control, I dont have to worry about the warranty or the payment, I dont have to worry about what changes I make or what changes the next upgrade will make. ok...here I go again - somebody smack me... ;)
