I’ve been idly considering switching to a Mac, now that the underlying OS is FreeBSD. It’s the best of all worlds for me: a UNIX system where I can do all of my system tweaks; a nice, easy-to-use GUI desktop; and support for most (useful) mainstream applications. And it’s not Windows :-)

I was reminded of this again when I tripped over two weblog entries: “James”:http://radio.weblogs.com/0112098/’ “On Becoming a Mac Lover”:http://radio.weblogs.com/0112098/2003/07/26.html#a395, and “Brad”:http://bradchoate.com/’s “Reasons for Sticking with Windows”:http://bradchoate.com/past/001672.php (the point of the second is that the list is very short :-).

On the other hand, I’m about to inherit my work desktop (a reasonably powerful PIII), and the new employer is giving me a work laptop, so I won’t be hauling my _own_ laptop around much anymore. So I don’t really have an _excuse_ to buy a Mac right now…

Update: here is another “pro mac rant”:http://www.rohdesign.com/weblog/archives/000174.html with some scary statistics; 50% of windows boxes are running software that the owner didn’t install? Wow…
