I’m moving to Mac. I am, hopefully, going to get a MacBook Pro for my birthday at the end of this month. It is not because I don’t like Windows, no, it is for a few other reasons:
1. My windows laptop is slowwwwwwwwww…
2. Mac are cool. They have style, and are so über-cool. The GUI is much better than windows.
3. Xcode and the iOS SDK. Yeah, for about two years now, I’ve wanted to get a mac for solely this reason. I wanted to make iPhone apps! Also, I was tired of using VB to make programs for windows, I wanted to start developing for mac!
4. OS X Lion is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!! Have you tried it at an Apple Store? It it such an update to Snow Leopard. It is enhanced by the MacBook pro’s multitasking gestures.
Yeah, I’ll miss Windows, but I believe that Mac is the way forward for me. I’m not saying mac’s better than windows, I’m just saying that for me, mac is right – just because it has what I need and want.
Here are the top three programs I’ll miss from Windows:
Visual Basic. It is the best SDK I have ever used, it creates program’s for windows easily. I made program for my friends all the time. I guess Xcode is the mac alternative, I hope it will be this good!
Dark Basic Pro. It was the best 3d game programming language I have ever experienced. Unfortunately, the compiler is not available for macs, so I will have to find another, equally awesome 3d game programming language that is suited to macs.
3d RAD. I used this program for a Latin project at school once, I got 9/10. It is so easy to use, and the fact that it had a scripting tool helped a lot – because I like scripting.
There we have it. Thanks for reading what I think is my longest post ever. Remember, comment, like and follow!
I leave you with an image that made me chuckle:
