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."

If Apple had decided otherwise and taken BeOS as their new Mac OS X, you would also be bashing Mac OS X POSIX compatibility.


If the question was the same as here, "why do you say Apple is not for programmers?", then yes.

Any operating system is for programmers, because programmers should work on the operating systems the customers want solutions developed for.

It's not really fair to expect that, considering probably most OS in use are ~embedded... ;)
