WOOHOO!

I’m posting this entry from the living room couch using my brand new Apple iBook 14″. I’m just getting the hang of it right now, so no earth-shattering revelations. However, I can say that I really love the aesthetics and usability so far.

Oh… and the new wireless network kicks some serious butt. The AirPort card in the iBook and the ORiNOCO gateway are happily talking to each other with 128-bit encryption (and with a MAC address restriction on the gateway that only allows the computers I specify to connect).

The only pieces left are the extra RAM (to bring the iBook up to 640MB) and the carrying case, which had to be ordered by a friend (thanks, Misty!).

Why I Still Use Windows

The short of it: before GNU/Linux can become anything close to dominant on the desktop, those who develop it must figure out how to satisfy people like this guy[link defunct]. I identify with him. I saw this page on Slashdot today, and I must say that it comes pretty danged close to most of the reasons why I don’t run Linux on the desktop.
