I bought a Mac. This is worse than buying a windows machine. Why? Because if I buy a windows machine, I pay my M$ tax, then blow it away and return to Linux. Now, I have bought a mac. Granted, I could setup a dual-boot setup and run all those great Linux apps in a separate partition. I don't want to.
I am very very happy with my MacBook, and it is treating me very well. I have not hit a single dependency problem. I have not had any hardware conflicts. I've been able to install most of my favorite GNU programs, and I'll be installing a few more today.
Beyond being able to install the open source programs I love, I am able to do what I want without having to worry about it. Granted, one of the first things I've done was to get rid of Safari and install Firefox, but I still love this computer.
Ok, So I'm a Mac Fanboy. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go download some back editions of Mac podcasts.
