A Long Road Back

Not counting a PowerCenter clone, the last Apple computer I bought for myself ran OS 7.1 and looked like this… Google Image Search PowerBook 140

Ten years later, I’m having a wee of a time setting up my new MacBook Pro.

Why a decade between Macs? Don’t promise Copland and deliver System 7.5. Remember “Conflict Catcher”? All water under the bridge.

Today, ironically, was about Windows. I created a Boot Camp partition running Windows Vista with full Aero. A great environment to demo Ript. I can also use VM Ware Fusion to run that partition as a virtual machine within OS X.

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.
