Nu am privit niciodata OS X ca pe un sistem de operare pentru oameni mari, dar definitia data de Marco Arment prin 2005 este atit de valabila astazi…
“No wonder I love OS X so much.
Itâ€™s perfect for grown-up computing. I hardly need to change any settings. Nothing gets in my way. Everything just works.
When I close my Powerbookâ€™s lid, it sleeps. When I open it, it resumes. When I want to use a peripheral, I plug it in. When Iâ€™m done, I unplug it. When my network connection changes, I donâ€™t need to know about it. I donâ€™t need an extensive suite of system maintenance utilities to protect me from the poor design of the operating system. When I want to read something, I read it. When I want to write something, I write it. The hardware and software work without intervention.
I donâ€™t need to worry about spyware, adware, viruses, worms, trojans, backdoors, firewalls, defragging, the Registry, or â€œhackersâ€. Iâ€™m not paranoid that I might accidentally view the wrong email or website and it will exploit a bug and install malware without further action from me. I donâ€™t need to shut down every night or reboot regularly. I donâ€™t even need drivers for most of my hardware – even many devices that require drivers on Windows.
Where does this leave desktop Linux? Absolutely nowhere. But thatâ€™s a long enough argument to be its own article.
Are you moving toward this grown-up computing? Consider a Mac. After a few months, youâ€™ll be amazed at how productive youâ€™ve become and how little time you waste keeping your computer in an acceptable, reliable state.”
