Short rant by a Mac user on The True Cost of Mac OS X.
Articulates one of the things that concerns me, at least about my use of OSX. In order to gets to the point were it “Just Work”, there is a modest outlay on these new applications. Not that this is a problem, but its something that has to be factored into the budget cost benefit analysis.
Plus the fact I’ve spent a large amount of time finding tools that work on Linux, that I enjoy using. Invest both time and money look at new applications is some thing I’m considering. That said, if I find one or two apps that really make life fun, I’ll probably swing. After all Fink and Darwin make it a breeze to install emacs or vim if I want too. 😉
