Ok so I’ve finally done it. A few months ago a friend lent me his old G5 Macintosh to play with. I told him it would be a fun “toy,” but that obviously I would still use my Windows machine. At some point I realized that it could be handy at times (who doesn’t want a built in Linux terminal in their operating system). So I started using both simultaneously, side by side. Every so often, Vista would of course freeze or slow or just restart for no apparent reason, causing me to have to use the Mac more and more by default. Eventually I realized that I was hardly using the Windows machine at all.
When the time came for me to build a new computer, I decided to make the leap. I took out a loan and signed away my first born and bought a Mac Pro.
