Aki at Aki’s Blog has given up on the Mac dream after four years as a PowerBook user, and is moving back to Windows. And not just back to Windows, back to Windows on Dell.
He mentions price, Java-support and battery life among his reasons, not least “Reasonable tools exist in Windows… such that many of the productivity gains I got on my Mac are now possible in Windows.”
What does he miss? His old 12″ PowerBook has Unix and was sexy, two words that you don’t often see close together.
