Thanks for listening to my OS rants. I ordered..
... an iMac 20" 2.66GHz. Should be here next weekend.
For the last few weeks I've only been using XP for iTunes and visiting a websites that aren't currently working on my 7 years old Linux PC (cant get it working due to either lack of time or lack of effort). Anyway, looking forward to finally working [properly] on OSX. So far my thoughts on Linux are:
- These guys sure put a lot of time and effort into this OS
- I'm always gonna have a copy of Linux around
- Do I really wanna spend *this* much time figuring Linux out when I could be riding/taking photos/editing movies etc?
My Vista laptop isn't working right now (hardware fault) but that will be remedied next week. Anyway, let's see how this OSX thing works out for me.
If you're anything like me, you'll dig it. After using Windows through the gamut of incarnations (3.11, NT 4, 95, 98SE, 2000 Sever+Professional, XP Home & Professional), I used MacOS 10.3.1 through 10.3.9 on an iBook. It died earlier this year, but it gave me three and a half years of constant, hard use and was amazing. I'm planning on waiting til the update next month to the laptops to pick another up. No, I'm not some die-hard Apple fan, but it just worked better. I love my XP Pro desktop to death - I built it exactly how I wanted it - but the iBook was just that much more friendly to sit down and use.
