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."

Not everyone that sells software for a living is an evil corporation.

Sure, but Apple is and Apple is the one selling licenses to OS X (not the software, the license)

I re-read your comment and it can be applied to any company selling software for a living in the desktop area, and to most of the companies selling software in the server side as well.

The number of open source companies that are able to pay the bills every month out support contracts is minimal.
