My mom asked me why I got an Apple laptop. "So that I can run OS X", I told her. I seriously think that OS X could make a big dent in the Windows market share. It's got the GUI, and it's got the Unix. What more does one need?
Other bits of joy that I love:
I didn't get it just for fun, of course. I have two Perl-related book projects in the works, and I didn't want to be tied down to my desk to work on them, since certain people in my house tend to crawl around and get into mischief.
