In a couple of months, it will be almost a year that I have been using a Mac. I remember some years ago, I never even thought of using a Mac – and not using it turned out to be one of my biggest mistakes.
Last summer, my sweet (not) MS SBS 2003 server crashed, without a single explainable reason or cause. During the pain of reviving the bloody piece of crap (endless hours spent for more that 2 day), I was talking to someone who said why don’t you switch to Mac. I never knew back then that there was a Mac Server, and that Apple even made servers, I even never liked to look at the Apple website.
And there I was, checking the Apple line! I decided then that my next laptop should be the Mac book. It wasn’t long until my Toshiba Qosmio died on a business trip to Europe – Total Loss – lucky me I just had it backed up. I got back home, and there I got my first Mac ever, a MacBook Black which I can not live without.
At first, I was considering to have a MacBook with Windows XP installed on it – this would have been my biggest mistake – for the love of God, why should one need to run Windows after having an OS like the Mac OS X.
The Mac OS X itself is one of the best OS’ I have ever used. It’s simple and it works – just how I like. I just love each and every single detail in it.
Keynote makes me ask myself, how the hell were you doing presentation with powerpoint?
The Dashboard – just great!
All in all – it just works, whether you want it or not.
I will continue using Macs for a long time, and I find it quite distant to switch to something else.
As for the MS SBS 2003 server, it is now replaced with a Mac Pro running Mac OS X server…
