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."

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.

How would you know that? can you predict unposted articles? ;)

Actually yes; they show up in the submit news page: http://www.osnews.com/submit

But that wasn't what I meant. I was more referring to the submitter whining on about his pro-OS X articles being excluded from selection due to editorial bias.
