Happiness is ….

getting an email saying that the Mac Pro I ordered on Wednesday has shipped. I should have it by Tuesday. Yes, I’m making the switch. My main desktop has been Linux for at least 10 years now, with a backup Windows machine for a few things. But I got tired of the bugginess of Fedora. And with the development of Parallels and other VM systems, it’s now possible for me to consolidate my two main desktop machines (I’ll still have one or two server boxes for development). I can’t wait.

    Hi Mark. I made the switch last year and besides a couple of hiccups it was worth it.

  3. You’ll like it.
    The switch should be really easy.
    I still develop on Linux (Rojo and Tailrank) but I’d never replace OS X on my desktop……

  4. Mark, good luck with your Mac. Actually coming in over the transom to introduce
    Openyear, we’re a startup in Mt. View. Openyear is doing Social Compensation between talent. Wondering if you have a minute to learn more. You have my email, my cell is 650.464.6355. Thanks Mark.
