Original OSNews Interviews The news that Apple is going to switch to Intel processors shook up the computing world. Many users and developers were eager to publish their opinions on the switch. However, one group of people were totally neglected during all this: resellers. Today, we feature an interview with Wim Schermer, first Dutchman to own a Mac (in 1984), and co-founder of one of the biggest Apple retail stores in The Netherlands, MacSupport. We discuss the switch to Intel, and much more.

RE[3]: Mac & Linux

Member since:

Mac OS X doesn't always feel faster under Linux. On my machine, it typically feels much slower. But that was because I typically ran a leaner Linux installation which better suited my needs anyway.

The second point is that the typical Unix distribution will offer a greater number and more current packages than Mac OS X. Sure, stuff will compile and run under Mac OS X but I don't want to waste time doing that.
