I'm a software developer with over 20 years of experience on systems including MVS, VM/CMS, Windows, OS/2, AIX and HP-UX. I had been using Windows on my desktop at both home and work. I started looking for a new machine for home and decided that I didn't want to get Windows again. Over the years I've become a Unix and Open Source fan. I started asking friends and coworkers about running Linux on a laptop, and one of them showed me his PowerBook running OS X. I was fascinated, and bought an iBook about a month later. I have had no regrets, and found myself inwardly cheering when I saw Macs running OS X at JavaOne.
