Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

I work my whole day in command line, AIX 5.3L to be specific. There is nothing better at the end of the day to go home and use a Desktop that I have nothing to worry about...Apple provides me that...not only the slickest, always-ready GUI on UNIX, but the fact that I really haven't restarted my box in months. I cannot afford the time of hunting for elusive rpms, dependencies and other crap associated with some open-source OS. If people don't find the new items 'good enough' or 'disappointing'...then, spend hours of 'enjoyable' time hacking around setting up KDE, XFCE, fluxbox and then installing all the gimmicks and shiny things and by the end of the weekend you can say 'hey, where did my girlfriend go?'...she might be hanging out the dude with the MacBook at Starbucks!..after all, the mani goal is to get the chick!
