I don’t want to say it, but I can’t help.
Mac OS X
Ah…so when does that cost of ownership of a PeeeCeee actually come in lower than buying a Mac? I think it’s only lower the first week you own the box…then each day, week, and month afterwards the cost of ownship increases exponentially. So actually the risk of getting hosed with an equipment failure or needing to reinstall the OS is just around the corner…the question remains as to how long you can avoid these pitfalls. I really liked my Cisco-issued IBM ThinkPad T22 for the first 15 months, then the ownership experience declined dramatically. I reimaged the system and it was never the same. I avoid using that laptop like the plague now, and rely on my Titanium PowerBook for day to day work and life computing tasks. Granted, it’s not perfect either, but it’s really a joy to use and it’s reliable. It just works! — RL
