They’ve had it with MS. Their Dell PC, six years old, can’t be upgraded to Win7. Even if it could, they’d have to back up, format and reinstall. Which, for the record, is a shitty stupid thing on Microsoft’s part. My upgrade curve from OS9 to OSX did not involve a single format of the HD. At all. And that was nearly ten years ago, when Apple was trailblazing. MS has no excuse for this. None.
I was arguing for Ubuntu, but Mac won out in the end. The superb pricing on the Mini is part of what did it, but I’ve been hacking code longer than my nieces have even been alive, and that may have been a factor as well. It was Linux or Mac, ultimately; they’re more or less totally disgusted with Redmond.
I did agitate for Ubuntu, but in the end, Apple won out.
Because, you know, it works. It just fucking works.
Thanks, Bill, for proving with Windows 7 what I’ve been saying for years. Now focus your company on XBox, Windows Mobile, and Microsoft Foundry. You’re excellent there. Keep it up. Cede the desktop to your betters.
