The cult's newest convert

My old Sony VAIO PCG-XG9 Linux laptop, which has served me well for three years now, has been falling apart... literally. The plastic casing is cracked and split in numerous places, and I can almost open the laptop up without undoing any screws now. I've used that laptop for so many hours that the paint is worn off where my wrists rest, and I've even replaced the keyboard once already. It needed replacing.

For a number of months now, I've also been seduced towards the fruity side of the computer industry. I've been watching Apple's MacOS X rise to maturity with the allure of unix underpinnings and stability, with the hardware and software availability of a major desktop.

So I did the logical thing and gave in. I am now the owner of a new 1GHz Titanium PowerBook G4. Yay! I've been lusting after these laptops for months now anyways. It's all good.

Only problem is, now I have to go and help the TCL/Tk folks get Tk working better on MacOS X. It's quite pathologically broken.

If the spousal unit gets an offshore job, he is getting an Apple laptop with DVD player.
