“Back in June I told you about my decision to make a serious
change in my computing life: moving from the Macintosh operating
system to Linux. As I’ll describe below, after a false start my
migration is now proceeding well.
“My decision to switch didn’t reflect any major unhappiness with
the Mac OS, which I still consider the class in the desktop/laptop
market. Rather, it reflected my problems with Apple.
“Specifically, I was concerned because of the implications of
the company’s huge success with the iOS family of products — the
iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch — and its smothering control of the
ecosystem around those products.”
