Back to the Mac

My first Mac was a Mac Plus in 1988. I worked through a series of machines include the MacSE, SE/30, IIfx, II-lc, Powerbook Duo 230, and finally a PowerMac G3. That was my last Mac and I kept it running until 2003. (My Mom kept it running for another three years after that.)

Sadly, in 2003 I needed a new machine, I had a job that required me to use Windows, and I was feeling cheap. So I bought a run-of-the-mill Pentium 4 machine and made the leap to Windows and Linux exclusively for the last four years.

When I began my new job back in March of this year I specifically requested a MacBook Pro. Fortunately, GenoLogics is open-minded enough that they have a bit of everything: Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac. I've been using this new Mac to the exclusion of all else ever since. It is so wonderful to be back with a Mac.

The great news is, with the Intel based machines, if I really need Windows I just fire up Parallels and I'm good to so. Easy.
