Addicted to Mac ?


I am always curious how many Muses Apple has hired in Palo Alto, why their engineers could design such a elegant desktop environment? I am totally addicted to the Mac Notebook, and would like to collect funds for a new MacBook, until I read this, summarized as:

  • Crippled FreeBSD kernel
  • Quasi-proprietary language – Objective C
  • Lame Finder, even Apple itself admits that
  • Mysterious configuration like Windows registry
  • Shareware community
  • Dedicated open-source

Ok, maybe the “MacBook foundation” can be used in other place…

UPDATE: the latest Mac Book seems a good tradeoff between the performance and price, still considering…
