I'm a little worried. I think I'm turning into a Mac whore. I find myself browsing Apple.com every day to check for the new faster PowerBook models with that slightly faster CPU and larger harddisk that I want. I want the top-of-the-line 15″ model because I can now for once afford a little luxury.
There's even the temptation to switch
$EDITOR from vim – which works
fine on Mac OS X – to BBEdit;
it seems all the Mac loving web-hackers use it, and it does have some cute
features (as it should at $199). I also discovered Ogg Drop which enables Mac OS X to play my preferred format of
compressed digital music. I have nothing to loose in the switch. Really.
I won't miss running OpenBSD
current or FreeBSD
RELENG_5 on my main computer, it's not that interesting for me
anymore, and a modern Mac still have the wonderful Unix commandline integrated
with the OS that I rely upon for so
