So, I have a bit of a confession here. I have recently purchased a new Mac Book Pro. It’s about 2 weeks old now and I can’t say the transition has been painless... It’s hard to migrate from working in a almost exclusive windows environment for the last 12 years (My first computer was a mac OS 7). I have to think a lot about how things work now keyboard shortcuts are different... Applications are different I sorely miss my editplus, I love that application. It is one of the few that I actually registered - and highly recommend it to anyone who does any type of file manipulation or scripting...
Anyway, I’ve been working on a super secret project that will eventually evolve into developing an application for the iPhone and to do that type of development then you have to have an Intel PC mac. It is kind of crappy - but I was in the market for a new PC anyway my previous laptop was over 4 years old (still running very well but showing a bit of age). I will say that GlassFish has never run better, and it is truly amazing how much development software it comes with out of the box. I’ve started playing with Objective-C and Cocoa just a bit and they are very cool I can totally understand why a developer would want to use the Cocoa Framework and XCode.
Anyway, I just wanted to get that off of my chest... I’m not a zealot yet - it is just a tool after all but it definitely a powerful system - and a 17“ wide screen is a beautiful thing indeed.
