I’m very happy to say that, after using Windows on the desktop for about a year, and various flavours of Unix on the desktop for about six years, I’ve Switched back to the Mac (which I happily used for about six years before that).
Specifically, a very kind colleague (thanks, Andrew!) in the office down the hall sold me his 667Mhz 15” Powerbook G4 for a quite reasonable price (due to the hardship of getting himself a 17” Powerbook).
I’ve got pretty much all of the applications I need on board; I may have to get Virtual PC for Quicken (the Mac version is HORRIBLE) and our weird in-house expense application.
- How do I get Safari to recognize a new SSL CA? [answered; see comments]
- How do I import my Mozilla bookmarks.html file into Safari?
- OSX’s WebDAV still doesn’t do SSL.
- How do I get a preview copy of Panther? ;)
Interestingly, the hardest thing to switch has been RSS; as far as I can see, each aggregator on each platform has a different approach, none of them interoperate regarding OPML import/export, and feeds that worked fine in Sharpreader break in NetNewsWire. Argh.
