Is all the rhetoric about Apple really necessary, here?
and we all know they are not even close to be productive for developing software. They’re slow, interrupt our work often but we still use them as our culture shifted from succeeding by building great tools to workaholism.
Personally, I used linux-on-the-desktop for many years (much the same setup as described here, actually) — and I switched away, to Macs, for exactly the opposite reason: I got tired of the latest breaking update, or driver misconfiguration, or whatever-the-hell-it-was-this-time, getting in the way of me *just being able to open up my computer and start writing software*.
I love me some Linux; but please don’t imply the rest of us use Macs because we don’t know better, or because we’re simply fools. We do it by choice, because they’re superior for us. 🙄
