Response to: Linux vs. OS X

That's a good point. If I had used kernel 2.4 and an RPM-based distribution, Linux would have been less interesting to me.

I don't perceive an administration burden greater than I had with Mac OS X (especially when using a distribution that handles package management gracefully), but I am comfortable upgrading configuration files by hand if necessary, so what is acceptable to me might be too technical or complex or burdensome for plenty of other people.
