Mac OS X "A little more than an year ago I wrote my rant post The Linux Desktop Experience is Killing Linux on the Desktop and for the first time in 8 years I wasn't a desktop Linux user anymore. I spent about a month wrestling with Windows 7, but let's face it - Windows is ill suited for professional Ruby programmers like me (and it's ill suited for most programmers, except maybe Java & .Net I guess). Anyways, it was never my intention to stick with Windows - I was just doing my Mac due diligence. Now with 1+ year of OSX usage I'd like to share a few things about my experience thus far with you."

So the guy changed from some Linux distro to OSX and is happy about it. I don't necessarily agree but good for him.
This is news-worthy exactly how?

It's not just a news site; also analysis. Some people are ignorant - me for example. I've never touched an Apple device, but i'm a bit curious. There's plenty of stuff out there, but I'm more interested in an article like this which is not fan fiction or rabid rant, just someone who once liked linux but prefers osx.
There's way too much stuff to sort through on the web - I don't always want the hottest news, just the more interesting stuff even if it's ancient or a personal experience.

I agree with you in principle, but I can't help thinking that Thom would have been damned if he did post this and damned if he didn't (given how much criticism he gets for his Apple patent rants)

Nah, I doubt it. If he hadn't posted it no-one would have known or cared about that blog post.
