  • I just got a Mac, and I must say so far I am not impressed. It just feels clunky, I still prefer KDE over Aqua. I seem to use the mouse a lot more on the Mac. I guess I just need to get used to it, but I am not sure why I should spend much time trying.

      After having GNU/Linux as my desktop OS for a few years I got a Mac with Mac OS X and I must say that I can see why many people think that it (Mac OS X) is the better desktop OS. (I just love having a terminal with *real* transparency :)

      However, I can't see myself producing any quality code using Mac OS X. Under GNU/Linux I use LarsWM [umich.edu] as window manager, which is extremely minimalistic. I hardly ever need my mouse then. There isn't a regular way of moving windows using the mouse, actually. So since I'm used to not having to worry about the windows positions it distracts me when I have to do anything else than copy'n'paste with it.

      On the other hand, Mac OS X is excellent for art stuff, IM and websurfing. So I come to the old conclusion: "Use the best tool for the job!"
