Wow, I feel bad for not posting an update here sooner. But the end of the deathmarch left me with almost no energy for anything computer-related, and I resolved to stay away from computers on my vacation. (I cheated a bit, but I was pretty good about it in general.)

In other news, I've decided to try Mac OS X out. I bought a new iBook (14", 933MHz G4 CPU) complete with 640MB RAM and an Airport card. I pondered getting a PowerBook instead, but really an iBook is fine since I just want to tool around with Mac OS X a bit. I haven't followed the Mac world too closely since I parted ways with my old Performa a few years back, but Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) looks like it could be the Perfect Unix: a great Unix back-end (based on FreeBSD 5) combined with a great UI. Plus, Xcode looks like a pretty nifty IDE.
