After mostly using my windows machine for some time I had forgotten how wonderful it is to have a real unix under hood, as in OS X. It’s so great to be able to just alt-tab to a terminal window and have a real unix shell there. There is of course cygwin for windows but it’s not the same thing, emulating unix on top of something won’t be the same as the real thing. Too bad my old iBook with just a 600 MHz G3 processor is started to feel a bit slow. I’ve been drooling over the new iBooks with G4 processors, but I’ve already got one laptop, what would I need another one for?
