\n That's right boys and girls, I now own a Macbook. And I see no reason to put linux on it. It all started, you could say, with Songbird. I love the Songbird player for linux it is very nice and has tons of great features, but after a kernel backport to get my wireless working, Songbird started seg faulting. I install, uninstalled, reinstalled, compiled from source. I always got the same seg fault. I've had issues of this nature before, and usually I format and reinstall linux on my system. The only problem is, that this is my development platform. I work on my laptop. I can't continually have issues that require time consuming reinstalls. On top of all this, I just got an iPhone and realized right off the bat that without iTunes, the experience would be painful. So I got a really great deal on a carbon-fiber Macbook. I don't know how I lived this long without it!
For starters, everything just works. I press a button and my calendars are all synced (iCal, iPhone, GCal) as are my mailboxes, bookmarks and songs.
I also don't feel like I am betraying my roots, because MacOSX IS freebsd after all. If I want to see a terminal, it's easy. One of the first things that I did was take over the root account
and volia! your root is belong to me!!
