James Duncan Davidson: Presenting Mac OS X. It really does seem to be the case that more and more alpha geeks are making Mac OS X their desktop OS of choice. I’m still stuck in Windows-land at home, and at work I use Windows with my right hand and Linux with my left hand, but I find myself yearning more and more for a Mac every day. The thing is, I don’t know if I can ever justify buying one for myself (if my employer wants to buy me a Mac, I’m right there), because Apple hardware is just a crapload more expensive than standard PC hardware. At some point, I may have to cough up the extra bucks though, just for the coolness factor.
