Switchback: Horrors of a Windows Power-user Trying to Switch to Apple OS X

But it turns out that even when I try to live an Apple life, that is a pretty lousy experience too. How could that be, you say? The apparent point of Apple’s existence is to create a beautiful and polished user experience. Well, it turns out that what Apple does is beautiful and polished *graphic design*. Actually interacting with the system is something else. —Ben BedersonSwitchback: Horrors of a Windows Power-user Trying to Switch to Apple OS X (HCI User Advocate)

You are now grinding your axe.





Seriously, I’m blogging this because I miss the love I used to feel for my Palm PDA and my Dell laptop. I still have a Palm and a Dell, but I don’t love them anymore. I just use them.



I will never love the Windows/PC symbiont. (Is that the right word?)



I wanted Bederson to love the Apple, because I want to believe that it’s possible to make complex technology that works beautifully and beautifully works.
