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."

This article pushed me that last extra step to drop Linux for OS X. I had been contemplating it for some time. As much as I love the control and the hackability, there's always something that niggles one about desktop Linux. In my case, it was the poor support for my Mac's wifi card, which would choke when there are a lot of networks nearby.

Given that I have a Mac to begin with, the switch to OS X was painless =)
