Mac OSX? :-) Don't worry, it's Unixy underneath [0]

Since installing RH8 some time last year, I decided to take a 'hard line'
and only boot Windows only if absolutely unavoidable - a "dogfooding"
exercise so to speak to see how good RH8 really is on the desktop. The
experiment has been successful - I think I boot Windows perhaps for five
minutes every two months. I do my accounts with GnuCash, use OpenOffice
for all my invoices/letters, play RTCW:ET and Unreal Tournament, do
document scanning with xsane, play mp3s, play videos with the excellent
Xine (which understands Redmondian formats like wmv).

Being old school Unix, I still use pine for email :-)
