So it's my second day here at FiveRuns, and I'm sitting here spending some QT with my new MacBook Pro when my iPhone rings. It's my old Fedora 8 laptop calling... again.
"Really, Todd, can we work this out? We really had something special going here. I thought you loved open source?"
Wow. That was below the belt. Of course I love open source. I mean, I worked for Red Hat for 6 years, for Pete's sake. But now that I'm out of a monogamous relationship with OSS, and have integrated a bit of non-open-source into my life, I have to say... I'm pretty happy. Plus, all the cool-kid developers I know are using Macs, and they seem to have come to terms with it.
"Okay, fine, Todd. But can you at least dual-boot me on your Mac?" says Fedora.
No, because then I would be configuring you all day, like I used to do. I need less complexity in my life, Fedora. I want to be told what to do sometimes - you know, as they say in my new world - convention over configuration.
"Okay, will you at least load FireFox?". Absolutely. Done.
