Things I Have Been Doing Since We Last Met #4 - Switching to a Mac

Two years ago, wanting to replace my aging desktop PC, I overcame my longstanding Apple apathy (Applethy?) and bought an Apple PowerBook, the 15" aluminium edition - and I haven't looked back since.

There were a number of reasons for the switch, which I will perhaps detail at a later date. For now, all you need to know is that the Apple OS X operating system is every bit as intuitive and user-friendly as everyone says, that it's much more stable than Windows, and that it will interact perfectly happily with Windows PCs and file formats.

Plus - and I'm sorry, but this does matter - the hardware is gorgeous. If it was gorgeous but sucked ass, or was ugly as sin but kicked ass, that would be one thing. But gorgeous *and* an ass-kicker? You need one of these beauties.

Re things you have been doing since last we last met:

doing yoga + buying a mac = becoming a hippie

I hadn't seen fit to link the two like that, but now that you mention it... maybe I could tie-die a shirt or two. That would be, like, really cosmic, man. (Thinks for a minute of other hippie cliches to recycle; gives up.)

Besides, no true hippy would own a Mac. I would assume a strong preference for home-rolled FreeBSD. Anything else would be, like, selling out to The Man, man.
