Apple, oranges, no Apples
Well if you have read my previous posts I have never been an apple fan. From TRS-80 I went to IBM-PC clones mainly self built. I have cobbled together some pretty epic systems (when running Prophet BBS) that had untold of storage capacity for those days … something like 36 CD’s online, terabyte storage with a Novel server 12 lines really hot stuff.
Again you will know that I chucked in RBR and JLogica to help Greg with his project Channelpace which went live as an invite system last week. He started me off with a macbook-pro to do the stuff I need, after fart arsing around with won doze for all these years it was a real eye opener, all of those things that I used to need to do to keep my system running … GONE, want an application if it is in the Apple AppStore click and it is there ready to use. All this stuff about the new Windoze well .. geez .. where have all you people been?
I am in the process of totally removing everything windoze based, Helen has an iMac now and she loves it too .. bye bye fugging around half the day making the poota do what yah want, sure an Apple costs more to buy, no doubt about the Apple Tax! but once you have it running Windoze looks like a nightmare! All within a Unix wrapper WOW!
