Why I use a Mac

Some brief musings on why

  • Dictionary app
  • Really good text-editing and typesetting features built in to the OS
    • More complex on linux and near impossible on windows
  • Nice UI because I’m used to it
  • Very decent keyboards
    • For me they’re better than most, but I do have a soft spot for old ThinkPads
  • Slick design, feels like tool not a toy.
    • I remember my first Powerbook G4. That thing was the Festool to my Bargain Barn Dell laptop.
  • Predictable
  • Unix system under the hood
    • no need for separate subsystem like on Windows
