I’ve always bought other notebook brands in the past. This year I’ve decided to get a MacBook Pro for one special reason — I want to create an iPhone app. That means I would need to use Mac OS X because developing an iPhone mobile app. The other reason is so that I could test the web sites I create on the Mac. But not everyone needs the reasons I just mentioned to buy a Macbook.
I’ve been a long time Linux user. But recently I’ve started transitioning to the Mac OSX operating system mainly because I have to create mobile apps for the iPhone mobile platform. The move was actually smooth since Mac OSX is just another flavor of the Unix operating system. Most of the software I’ve been using on my Ubuntu computer actually runs on Mac OSX. I’ve decided to write a post about my fresh experiences as being a new Mac user.
