How I kicked the Mac habit - with Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| After starting a new job this year though I was brought back around to Linux
| on the desktop. My first day at the office I was asked "so do you want
| Windows or Linux"? No brainer for me, even with my past pains on the desktop.
| Linux. (Oh, and they also asked me to pick a hostname themed off of a beer -
| I thought, man, I made the right choice coming here.) That was how I formally
| met Ubuntu. I ended up with a Hardy Heron box that has worked really really
| well.

| I’m living the dream, I tell you! I’ve swapped my MacBook for a Dell Mini and

Moving from Mac to Ubuntu: Why I’m switching

| Why I’m leaving Mac
|
| * *1. Crap file management.The Finder doesn’t work for me. No location bar
| * *and no tree strucure side panel makes it difficult to navigate folders and
| * *move files around the way I want to.
| * *2. Insufficient panels & customization. In Ubuntu I can have as many
| * *panels I want, can put all kinds of stuff on them, and can arrange them
| * *however I want. In OSX You just have the dock, and you can really only put
| * *applications or files on them, and you can’t even put in a separator to
| * *keep them organized.
| * *3. Various other annoyances. Such as:
| * * * * * * program menus are glued to the top of the screen on one monitor
| * * * * * only, which detaches them from the window. This is especailly
| * * * * * annoying when the program you’re using is on the second monitor.
| * * * * * * the date/time doesn’t open to a navigable calendar. I often use
| * * * * * this to check dates in the past or future.
| * * * * * * you can’t see hidden files unless you run a command from the
| * * * * * terminal to turn them on. Thus, hidden files are either always on
| * * * * * or always off.
