    Apple to ship 2.5 million Mac's thanks to Vista

    Linky

    Vista is carp unless you use Microsoft Live One care with it. Why don't they wise up and include it with free updates every year instead of charging £37 a year so that we can actually use Vista?

    Microshaft for you I guess

    Macs are standard issue for web devs at Yahoo! Europe, and I think now also in the States.

    Also for developers at several other web-focused PLCs that I'm aware of.

    TBH, if you're not writing Windows desktop applications, the only reason not to use a Mac is that you prefer Linux. I haven't met a professional software developer working on OS-agnostic applications who voluntarily uses Windows for a couple of years now.

    Nobody who's serious about web development would consider Windows as their primary development environment for a second - when you need to add the last few fixes to cope with the bugs in Internet Explorer, just run Windows under Parallels or VMWare for the necessary hour or so.

    Of course, if you're working with the epic fail that is ASP.NET, well, you have my sympathy... it must be sad to be unable to do your job to the highest standard possible because of the brokenness of your platform

    ASP.NET is no more/less broken than the Java equivalent (whatever the fook that is these days).
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Hasn't this argument been rolling on now for about 16 years or so. I remember being a student and debating quite vigorously. If only I'd known then ...

    Honestly, I'm starting to think Mac fanboys are the computer equivalent of evangelical Christians. You love your mac, great. Good for you. Keep it to yourself then please and stop chapping me fecking door banging on about how great they are.
