Why Developers Are Switching To Macs

protohiro1 Re:Strange Complaints (771 comments)

Sounds to me like you're a windows admin at heart, and are tying to do everything from the gui. Really, if you want to administer os x you need to get ok with the unix command line. Also you might want to learn a little more about how to run a web server on unix. (hint: you can have more than one php.ini file)

Why Developers Are Switching To Macs

I would say that os x is not the right os for a server in general.

Finder sucks. I just use the terminal for everything pretty much.

protohiro1 Re:Why Apple beat Microsoft (771 comments)

Our company lets us choose macbook pro or hp windows laptop. Most people seem to go with the mac these days, but we are developing web code that runs on linux machines.

Why Developers Are Switching To Macs

protohiro1 Re:No one I know uses a Mac for dev work (771 comments)

I work at a large internet company. We get to pick either a mac laptop or a windows laptop, plus a redhat desktop to run our code on. The vast majority of new hires go with the mac. But, we are generally writing php or c++ and many, if not most, use vim or emacs. I would say developers now at my company are about 30% mac, 50% windows and 20% linux. Our production machines mostly run linux. I think the mac is a great development platform, because it runs office, vim, textmate and I can and do run windows in vmware.

Here's a catchphrase for you: perfect is the enemy of the good. By waiting for perfection you throw away your chance to change things.

protohiro1 protohiro1 writes  |  about 8 years ago I just got a new job at a large internet company in Silicon Valley. Very exciting. My title is actually Engineer, which I find kind of disturbing on some level. I went to FILM SCHOOL. Anyway, now I am moving to nerd mecca...

I've turned in to microsoft, all the stuff I did for Elise's blog wasn't enough and I want to keep adding features. Anyway, until I do it, here is a great article. It manages to articulate something I feel pretty strongly about: the fact that wars kill people.

protohiro1 protohiro1 writes  |  more than 11 years ago Yeah, if you speak french natively you would have noticed based on my last entry: I Do Not Speak French As A Native Language. My last entry was lame and shrill as well. Yeah, like I own french or something. Whatever. I can be a jerk sometimes.

Une sig, mes amis, UNE sig.

protohiro1 protohiro1 writes  |  more than 11 years ago Je ne suis pas sûr, mais je crois que quand on dit, "sig", on veut dire "une signature". Le mot est féminin. Mais je vois beaucoup de gens avec une sig qui dit, en français, "ceci n'est pas un sig." Et pire, le peinture très connu de Magritte est "Ceci n'est pas une pipe": Pipe est féminine.

Alors, j'èspere que les gens qui lisent ce journal vont changer leurs sigs.

Ceci, elle est bien une sig.
