From Linux to OSX - 1 Year Later

Filed under
Linux
Mac

A little more than an year ago I wrote my rant post The Linux Desktop Experience is Killing Linux on the Desktop and for the first time in 8 years I wasn’t a desktop Linux user anymore. I spent about a month wrestling with Windows 7, but let’s face it - Windows is ill suited for professional Ruby programmers like me (and it’s ill suited for most programmers, except maybe Java & .Net I guess).

Anyways, it was never my intention to stick with Windows - I was just doing my Mac due diligence. Now with 1+ year of OSX usage I’d like to share a few things about my experience thus far with you.

Rest here

But developing these initiatives does not happen quickly or easily. It requires strong leadership in information technology, expertise to determine which solutions work best for a campus, and a financial commitment to making sure the technology is sustainable.
