The secret is out — I decided to get a MacBook Pro. It’s something that I have been considering for a while, but it still feels a bit strange getting an Apple machine. As anyone who’s met me knows, I’m not a big fan of Apple. Sure, I have an iPhone. But I’m not a particularly big fan of OS X, and I’m often critical about Apple’s software and business practices.
So why a MacBook Pro? Isn’t that like buying into the dark side?
Well, let me assure you first of all that I’m not a "switcher". I’m not going to port Trowl to OS X, and I’m not going to start wearing black turtleneck sweaters.
