The thought has finally came to me. I am going to ditch linux, eradicate any presence of it on any desktop use. Not because I hate it only because I find other platforms like Windows and Mac are much preferred choice for the job.
Linux is fine when using on a desktop, not a laptop. Don’t try to use anything desktop related. That’s a bliss :) Compile some stuff, run some technical apps (mostly command line stuff). Superb!
I can only hope the quality of linux distros and desktop apps will improve in the future.
What’s so great about linux is the kernel. It’s always the kernel. Its open nature and well maintained by hundreds of companies made it a huge success in the server arena. But afterall it is just a kernel, to call it a superior technology compared to other counterparts(nt, bsd, mac) just doesn’t make sense to me.
I have a passion for photo and video stuff which both mac and windows can provide me what i need. Most importantly both have proper color manangement!
I built a hackintosh. It has a quad core processor. All under 2k :) It’s performance is comparable to a Mac Pro, which is almost two times the price (close to 4k :|). I mean Mac mini is an overpriced, slow hardware. Imac is basically a notebook motherboard attached to a cheap TN panel lcd monitor… Mac Pro is top quality stuff but that’s some hefty price to pay. I really wish there will be a mainstream version of mac pro that is reasonably priced. Meanwhile, I heard Apple will be making TV soon :| :o
