Bye Bye Mac

2005-03-21 20:40 - Rants

Long story short, I'm not keeping the Mac Mini that I recently got. I was hoping that it might be the best of both worlds, a nice GUI on top of a stable unix base. But, it's just too weird. Here's a list of the things that irked me as I tried to get used to it.

There's lots of other things, big and small. But at some point, I realized that the annoyances are too great, and the benefits too small. It's perhaps nice for first timers, or casual users, but the Mac just doesn't float my boat. How sad to realize that Windows is the lesser of two evils.

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.
