The podcast for developerneurs
I left mac for windows almost a year ago.
So happy I did.
I have an Sager 15 inch laptop from XoticPC.
I have 64gb ram, 8gb video card, 2 x 512gb micro ssd raided, 2 x 2tb sata hd raided.
For less than the price of the Apple MBP
And I can buy a macbook for apple stuff, so i get the best of both worlds, and 2 laptops, same price.
The Ubuntu stuff is ok… but it doesn’t gel with the file system as well as I would.
It’s still in its own lil world.
I haven’t missed anything really on the PC, except for having to use PUTTY for ssh stuff.
Putty works pretty well, but it was nice to be able to do that from terminal.
My personal quote: I’d rather die of thirst than drink from the cup of mediocrity
While this phrase has a certain old world wisdom feel to it, it is actually a very recent expression thanks to Stella Artois ( a beer ).
The advertising slogan was so successful that it won in its category at the The Global Advertising Awards and has since found its way into the English language.
