You won’t believe what I almost did tonight. Excited by a few products that are Windows-only, as well as the ability to update the firmware and have more fun with some of my gadgets, I decided tonight would be a good time to pick up a copy of Windows and run it with Boot Camp. Plus I would get to see what this Vista thing is all about.
But then I did about 30 seconds of research and learned that:
- Vista has about 18 different versions.
- They’re all expensive.
Not something I feel like dealing with on the first day back from a long weekend. I may give in and buy Windows someday, but not tonight.
Jason suggested that I install Linux instead if I’m looking to play around with another OS. Some quick searches have suggested that the time I would have to invest into installing it would probably be even worse than the cost of Windows. I don’t want the OS to be something I have to think about, even if it would give me major geek cred.
I’m sticking with good old OS X for now. Not everything is compatible with Mac, but at least I’m comfortable with it.
