Return of the Mac

Return of the Mac

A ton of people who write software, design websites, and run networks (read geeks) have switched to Apple. Even Linus Torvalds, the guy who wrote Linux, is using a Mac now. Torvalds, of course, is running Linux on his Mac.

Slashdot, once the home of rabbid Linux users, has an Apple Section and covers almost every piece of Mac with the same geekly fervor as they do Linux and Windows stories.

At this point Macs are not only for graphic designers, but are also firmly in the world of code monkeys. OS X is based on BSD, unix under the hood, and if you don't want all that eye-candy on your screen, you can always install FreeBSD or Linux.
