Yes, it’s official – I now do osx.

My dear wife got me a Macbook for my birthday, and I’ve hardly touched my PC for a week.  It’s like having a souped up linux box with a kick-ass GUI.

Special note – get the base 512 ram, and buy 2GB of OWC memory, if you’re gonna buy a Macbook, it’s much cheaper.  I should be getting my 2GB upgrade tomorrow, and I’ll be running memtest to check it out and reporting back.
