I think you have me confused with another Grant. I did have a mac for
a few months once, but I have never been a mac lover.
I have always been a die hard linux guy and have tried to work for
companies that create linux distributions: Caldera for 5 years,
Novell for two (after the Suse purchase), and now Red Hat.

Don't be tempted by os-x. Fedora Core 5/6 can look just as good.
I go through periods where I take an extreme approach. For instance,
I only ran linux for three years and then went through a year or two
where I dual booted. I am now back to the extreme where I only run
linux and look down on anyone who runs any non open source OS.
But hey, thats my choice. :)
