  • I don't think you're the only one. I never made the switch to Apple myself, but over the last year or so I've seen a lot of Apple switchers going back to Linux. This was particularly apparent at YAPC::Europe last week.

    I'm interested to know why this is. Certainly it has a lot to do with the kinds of issues that you mention. But I also think that Linux support on the laptop has come on a long way in the five or six years since most people switched to Apple.

    • Well, my reasons my seem petty to many people, but at the end of the day, Apple has, on several occasions, left me high and dry and there's nothing I can do about this. If these were minor glitches in software I could choose alternatives for (such as when Safari kept crashing after an update), then it wouldn't be such a big deal. When I hit a single point of failure, though, I get kind of grumpy, particularly when it's something I have no possibility of fixing myself.
