Re:Sheesh. These fake 'switchers' are really boring.
Not a fake switcher by any means.
My house has Unix machines of different flavours (AIX, HP-UX, Solaris, SGI Irix), various Unix clones (Linux), and lots of Windows machines. All sitting behind Cisco networking (firewalls, routers, switches). Why? Well, most enterprises are complex and Windows is important.
But, when I do development work what do I choose to work on... A Mac. Since I got most things working in Eclipse (yes, even C Sharp and MSIL via Mono) its more comfortable. When I test I use Virtual PC or Bochs on PowerPC or Parallels on Intel if I have to target Windows.
What do I use for authentication? Windows AD becuase of Kerberos (RFC1510) and LDAP/POSIX (RFC2307).
Yet, after 20 years of Windows (yes, C and x86 assembler with Windows 1.04), I just got fed up with viruses, spyware and constant patching. A researcher from Sun told me to try a Mac and I laughed at them. One of the leading figures behind virtualisation and high end processor design told me to try one. I wanted to be balanced so I did try one - fully intending to make fun - but I was hooked. So, my main development machines are now iBooks, Mac Minis, Mac Pro, etc.... Even MS use Mac Pro's for some of the Windows Developers - running Windows of course.....
The Mac has less of an attack surface than Windows Vista, but may not be inherently secure by design although I suspect it possibly is. However, it doesn't have the idiots who target it day after day. So, end of problem...... I stilll run firewalls. I still have virus checkers. I haven't suffered from a virus, trojan, or spyware since I switched. Yet Spyware or untested patches in responses to spyware was causing lots of wasted evenings before. I'm happy - are you?
So, grow up. Some people really do switch.
