Great PC to Mac OS X Switch Story

You may not know it, but I'm a big time Mac guy and in particular I love Mac OS X after switching over about 2 months or so ago. This morning I found a great story by Geoff Barrall at BlueArc on how he became so frustrated at his PC, he decided to switch to a Mac Powerbook running OS X.

What I found most amazing is, this guy is highly technical and has setup massive data centers and yet feels completely out of control in managing his lowly Windows PC... well he did until switching to OS X anyway. Here's a great quote:

"I often wonder how the average businessman or home user copes with this kind of situation. I have spent years building data centers and have some degree of technical competence but simply cannot seem to keep my desktop PC in good order."


Personally I love OS X because it never crashes. Well, I take that back, this week I had a crash after running for 2 months! So, if you're getting frustrated with your old PC, seriously consider a Mac running OS X. Visit a local Apple Store and check out the Macs and OS X... I think the switch will do you good! ;-)
