Outline of Mac Diatribe

Please understand I’m of two minds about the Mac, and so my remarks should be taken like those of a concerned parent, rather than, say, a Palestinian suicide bomber.

My main points are

  • Lack of games
  • Inadequate developer documentation, including horrifying backward steps
  • Lack of affordable hardware
  • Counterproductive “boutique” model
  • Ignorance of the real competitive advantages over Linux, Windows
  • Poorly managed transition to OS X
