Over the past 48 hours I have fallen completely, totally, and hopelessly in love with OS X.1 and this G4. As in, so in love I can't pull myself away until the wee hours. Everything is so tight, so well composed, so _designed_, so coherent. I've complained publicly about MacOS for years. But almost every single complaint I've had about Macs has been addressed. I think they've really finally nailed it with OSX. It's so invigorating to have that excitement about computing that I originally had with BeOS again. Only this time, it doesn't feel like a futile battle. Apple has a chance, has industry momentum that Be never had.
This whole user experience is just so sexy...
I do have some complaints, so it's not perfect. There are things that remind you you're still using a young OS. But overall, it's so on the right track it's not even funny. I can't say I regret dabbling in Windows after leaving BeOS behind, or the three months I just put into learning Linux - they were good educational experiences. But this feels like coming home.
