Loving life in Bizarro World
Authored by: macslut on Apr 15, '06 10:48:48AM
I haven't had a chance to comment here in a while. I started a new job about a month ago (I can't disclose where). I usually tell potential employers that I'm platform agnostic, but once in the door, let them know that I prefer Macs. This time, the CTO and the Sys Admin were both Mac users and offered me up a Mac. Oddly, some of the production people I would be working with insisted that I needed a PC because there was (of all things) audio software that they wanted me to use that was Windows only.

Oddly enough, there was an excellent piece of audio software that was Windows only that was very well suited for our production needs.

As the OnMac contest was starting to show results, I delayed my purchase until the hack was released. I bought a new MacBook Pro 2GHz. Hacked it to run Windows that weekend, followed by doing it with Boot Camp the following weekend. The audio software I need to run works wonderfully well in BootCamp and in Parallels VM. I've had no problems whatsoever with it, as compared to the more expensive and brand new Windows Media Center PC I was using until I got the Mac. In fact, this MacBook Pro is the fastest and most problem-free Windows PC I've ever used. I think the problem-free aspect of it comes from it not being loaded with pc vendor crapware and a buttload of conflicting drivers.

As a result of seeing how great the MacBook is, others in my office have switched and now this is pretty much the standard issue machine for the company.

Well, I could write more praises for my MacBook, but I'm about to reboot so I can get me some Grand Theft Auto action...did I mention that games run incredibly well?
