  • Sometimes I wish I was still running Linux.

    That's one of the reasons I switched back from Mac OS X to Linux.

      I need to make a big PRO and CON chart. I like iTunes, I like OmniWeb and OmniOutliner and OmniGraffle -- but these days I use them less and less. I like NetNewsWire (but Sage looks nice).

      QuickSilver is fantastic, but I don't use it much anymore, except to launch...

      • For me, the ability to upgrade every program on my box at my convenience, when I see fit, the ability to install almost any program I could ever want with a single command-line interface, virtual desktops, focus follows mouse, X11 apps that integrate with the rest of the system, and the source code for absolutely everything available and unencumbered was too much to resist... at least once open drivers existed for all of my hardware.

        • Do you like the LinuxPPC? Which distro do you use?
          • LinuxPPC is pretty handy. It's a lot faster than Mac OS X (even on the same hardware) and it's fairly easy to keep up to date. I use Gentoo, but I'm willing to try Ubuntu.

            My only niggle hardware-wise right now is that I have to mute and unmute the volume manually to reset the sound outupt after waking up from sleep. Everything else -- hardware accelerated video, DVD playing, headphones, USB, hardware suspend , internal modem -- just works.
