The last straw was when my friend Michael Sitarzewski showed me Parallels, which allows Mac users to run Windows seamlessly on the new MacBook Pro. I need Windows for much of what I do (actually, I need the applications), so that’s why I’ve never made the leap. However, much of what I do is LAMP-based development and it’s really nice to develop on a Mac. I’ve had a Mac at home for some time to do video and music work primarily, but never for the office.
Today, all of that changed. I am writing this post using the new MacBook Pro, and so far it’s working great. Safari still seems completely unusable to me, so I did have to use Firefox. For example, WordPress didn’t show most of the editing controls under Safari.
I’m hopeful I can do all of my office work on the new Mac. I decided to really give it a try. We’ll see. If you have any tips for me, please let me know.
