OSNews, Generic OSes Over the years, we've occasionally run an "Ask OSNews" feature, wherein a reader asks us a question and we answer it publicly. Lately I've really been enjoying Slate's Dear Prudence advice column and the ever-interesting Straight Dope, and I thought we should see if we can get more OSNews readers to submit questions, and turn Ask OSNews into a more-regular thing. If your question falls outside of our domain expertise, we'll try to track down an expert to help out. And of course, our responses will always be supplemented by further advice from OSNews readers in the comments. Questions are welcome on any topic ranging from OSes and computing to science and geek culture. Contact us with your questions. (Please include "Ask OSNews" in the subject). Today's question is from a young student in Hungary who's seduced by the faraway siren song of Apple's marketing and wonders, "should I switch?"

I am a developer (Linux, BSDs and UNIX fan), I bought a white macbook two months ago and I am very happy with it.

MacOSX is a nice OS, all its hardware works perfectly and it is a perfect development environment for implementing stuff for any Unix, MacOS X, iPhone and, through VMs, Windows.

The user experience is very well developed and the hardware quality is very very good.
