    You guys keep working on that. Meanwhile Apple will continue selling millions more Macbooks and Mac Pro's to hard core developers, scientists and engineers who have work to do and need a computer to get it done with.

    You do realise that almost all of the top 500 supercomputers run Linux [top500.org]

    My colleague is a Linux Zealot. I use a Mac. I am at least 2.5-3 times more productive than he is.

    Linus Torvalds is much more productive than you. He uses Linux. You should definitely switch.

    Seriously, my car also costs 15 times a much as my bike but it also gets more done.

    You're not coming across as a "different tools for different jobs" kind of a person. This makes me inclined to believe that you're the zealot not your coworker. Bikes and cars do not fit in the same categories and neither is a replacement for the other.

    Also, my Macbook Pro is 7 years old and looks like new.

    So?

    • Apple: sportscar; moves you around quick and looks good while you do it. Useful for a lot of personal tasks.
    • Windows: suv; a bit bloated and gas guzzling but reliable for basic user-level grunt work.
    • Linux: truck; From tractor-trailer on down to pickup truck, great at heavy lifting but it has to be fairly stripped down (e.g., android) in order to do useful user-level work. Most people wouldn't use the heavy versions of it, but for those of us who need it, it is indispensable.

    And here we have the crux of the Mac v. Linux argument.

    Well not really. I'm not the kind of person who believes that CPU speed is the only spec that matters,

    A 7 year old machine is getting quite long in the tooth. At 7 years old, compared to a new machine, it will be slow, limited RAM, heavy, have a completely usless spinning optical drive, a slow, spinning hard disk near the end of its servicable life on the end of a slow SATA link almost certainly an ageing battery and by modern standards a rather anemic sceen resolution and the backlight will be faded out considerably. And it will be heavy too.

    At 7 years on it won't be a good machine in any regards, unless the author has spent a good deal on upgrades in which case it's hardly a 7 year old machine and substantially more expensive too.

    Also, I frankly don't believe the author that it "looks like new" unless he's never used it as a laptop (i.e. carried it around). Cases (even metal ones) get scratched. Keys get dirty because even clean fingers have grease on. Things get worn if they're exposed to the environment. And if it hasn't been, well, my that's a pointless statement since anything untouched will look like new in 7 years except food.

How many Unix hacks does it take to change a light bulb? Let's see, can you use a shell script for that or does it need a C program?

Working...
