News: "People buy computers that run the software they need"
I always thought that the sensible way of buying kit was a) work out what you want it to do b), find the software that does it, then c) get a computer that will run said software.
OSX is built on Unix, so seems logical to me if that's what their software is written for. Isn't that why coders buy Macs?
I have much less sympathy/more derision for those who buy a Mac, then try to find software that does what they want.
What? I have to buy Office again?
But what about my old gribblewiggl software?
Not available, er why did you buy a Mac?
Because Apple says they're the best computers in the world and they're a really great company who would never lie to us or abuse our ignorance.
