True, it’s for my daughter, and she’ll be taking up to UCSB when she moves up there at the end of the month, but it’s still somewhat of a milestone.
No, I’m not planning to switch over. I’m actually pretty happy with my current work environment in Windows XP. But I am very likely to buy another Mac. I won’t use it as my primary computer, but I can use it to test my websites and familiarize myself with the instant messaging products available for OS X.
Frankly, I like the interface and the product design a lot. OS X is beautiful… simple and elegant. I think it will serve my daughter quite well. And software for students is a bargain! I was able to buy Microsoft Office for OS X for $149… and it includes license keys for up to three computers! It pays to go to school.
