AOL. I bought Steve Hanley's (the money's here Steve, honest) G3 Powerbook and 
threw OSX at it initially to overwrite Steve's er.... vital files.

I too have enjoyed the OSX experience enough to leave it there and defer a 
Debian crossover until I see a pressing need. It, um, just *works*. And it's 
pretty. Sure, some of the system level stuff I'm accustomed to doing on a 
Linux box is not there, but on the whole I don't actually need it. Some of 
the paradigms require a brain-shift, but not a painful one.

Forgive me Linus, for I have sinned....
