Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

OS X and Writing/Coding

I've been using my G4 Powerbook all week to write this security chapter. Today I started coding and writing at the same time. This post is meant to vent that this laptop/OS is a DOG! It's so fricken slow! I have Eclipse, Word, Mail, Terminal and Internet Explorer running and I feel like I've lost hours for these apps to respond. The machine is 667Mhz and has a gig of RAM! What the hell?! I'll be coding working on my Windows box for the rest of this project, I'm tired of waiting.

Or even better switch to Linux.

I have a Red Hat 8.0 box but it's not portable - and doesn't have Word. Wrox is requiring that we writing in Word. I was thinking about doing this next week for the Struts chapter though. My Linux box is a lot faster than both. The thing I'm addicted to on my Windows box is the dual 19" monitors. I'd have to set this up on my Linux box to enjoy it more than Windows.

switch to Linux from Mac OS X.... you got to be kidding! :)) no way, Jose.

I am not kidding at all. Flexibility, Reliability, Usability and Performance. Flexibility: I can customize it exactly the way i want it from the kernel to the UI. Reliability: My machines have 200 days + uptime Usability: I have over 20 windows open when i develop spread over 6 virtual desktops and I have the best CLI. (OSX still don't have all the unix command line tools) Performance: Dual AMD + RAID IDE setup will outperform any Mac configuration at a much lower price.

You can use OpenOffice to write word documents and if you think that isn't compatible enough, you can use crossover office and run Microsoft Word from Linux.
