LXer: The Only Mac I Use

Tuesday 28th of October 2014 09:57:35 AM
Mac? Only if it's a vim macro. Okay, so the title is a bit of a troll. Although people are, of course, free to use whatever computers they want, I've personally never liked Macs. I've always found it strange how many Linux advocates rail against Microsoft, but hold their tongues when Apple does the same things. In any case, this isn't an article about that—it's actually about vim macros, because a vim macro is about as close as I'll get to a Mac—or Emacs, for that matter. Hey, that makes two holy wars in the first paragraph—not bad.

First, we started with Windows XP, then we moved to nothing but Linux because Microsoft refused to sell us licenses that were cheap enough to make our organization viable. Also, in less than a week of uses Windows, we were flooded with calls from parents complaining about viruses and malware. At that time, we were placing six computers in homes per week, so the complaints were a logistics nightmare for us.
