Ok I've been on the Windows side of things for.. since the MS-DOS days. Windows 3.1 etc...
I've always hated Macs, why? Because you couldn't run Window apps on a Mac. Because I never saw the need to have a Mac when a PC could do everything a Mac could do, even graphics wise, if you'd just buy real/decent hardware and not try and get some $800 sale computer to do your graphics. If you had comparison apples to apples hardware then I figure you were good to go. Also for 10 years my primary job was Windows Network Engineering, so of course I am way biased.
Then I started to develop, on the side at first, VBA, VBScript, Classic ASP, .NET 1.1, .NET 2.0... and Visual Studio's of course doesn't run on Mac....
Until Mac went Intel.
Now that Mac is on Intel hardware the world has opened up. You can now run Vista, XP OS on Mac pc. You can get VMFusion and run it in "Unity" mode which runs your Window Apps on your Mac! Crazy Stuff.
So I heard anyway.
Then my good, online friend, Mindshadow2k, kept hounding me how good the iPhone was... blah blah blah, does this and that. I didn't listen at first, but then I kept seeing the commercials, and would take a stroll through the Apple store... and finally started listening.
So I got an iPhone 3G... and wow, I was blown away and how user friends and intuitive the OS was. Way more then my Windows Mobile Phone.
I was so impressed that I started looking at the Macs. If the iPhone is this good, I wondered what the Macs were like.
So again with Mindshadow2k, dumping hints into my ear, and with the desire to start developing iPhone apps and try and make some side money, I finally went and got a MacBook Pro.
I've installed Vista via BootCamp and running VMFusion, and I love it!
I can run all my window apps and all my mac apps (not that I really have any mac apps other then iPhone SDK).
The Mac boots up faster then I can reach over and turn on my windows machine. It shuts down just as fast. It's amazing!
Well there you go, I'm tired of typing, well not really, I'm distracted easily :)
