I really want to support OSX development.. but since they have no plans to support anything else other than their own systems.. I think I will just play around with it and ditch. I mean.. there are applications I use that are Windows only.. it'll be hard to switch unless they come in Mac editions later. In a way, compatibility is sometimes as bad as Linux . I think even printer choice is limited..
I'm not sure if I really want to invest in a Mac.. because more often than not.. I wonder what I am paying for more.. the name? or the molded plastic? what's in it for me other than the awesome OS it comes with?.. then again.. the same can be said about some Dell computers.
Of course, there are exceptions.. like the Mac mini.. or iTV.. you can't build anything near that size using custom pc parts.. and they suck so little power. So if it has to be a Mac, I might give those two a shot. It is at this point in time where you wonder.. where are the custom laptop pc parts? mobile cpus, mobile mobos, mobile gpus??
Thanks for all your positive replies. Now I won't feel that bad about building a hackintosh.. or hell.. maybe even trying a mac keyboard on a pc. Basically, the guy likes anything apple.. if it's made by anything else.. it's "ghetto". Dell? "Ghetto + Ugly" HP? "Ghetto" Anything that's not an iphone, itouch or nano? "Ghetto"
I don't know.. perhaps I am better off not talking to him about computer stuff anymore.
