I did it /g/. Been here for almost 5 years and I finally did it. I bought a MacBook Pro.
It just werks. I don't have to deal with buggy xfce. I don't have to deal with shitty battery life. I don't have to deal with clunky ass thinkpads.
They say my freedoms are now gone, but I haven't felt more free than now.
>implying apple stock is succeeding
OP here, Apple makes gud laptops, but their stocks aren't going up significantly any time soon.
When I first turned it on, there were like 50 fucking programs on it, I was like why???? fuckin normies a shit.
I'll eventually turn it around and make it not so fuckin gui dependant, but I'm ok with it.
You did good anon, now thanks me later for pic related.
I got a mac to use from work, and the control+spacebar (I'm on my linux machine now so I can't remember the exact keys) is one of my favorite shortcuts, because it reminds me of dmenu and gnome's searching.
OS X is a gorgeous OS, and the text rendering it fantastic, i just wish you didn't have to buy an apple computer for it to just work, as it runs fine on my thinkpad, it's just fucking wireless cards not working.
I have nothing against OS X, but your attitude is completely shit. What's the point of living in a house and having 'nothing left to lose' than living in a maximum security jail? Why aren't you in prison right now since you don't care about your freedom?
Get a broadcom-based wireless card from eBay for $10 and you'll have working wireless
I'm sure there are newer cards that'd work better but I bought a Dell DW-1510 (AKA BCM94322) for my Latitude hackintosh and OS X supports it natively.

Also got my first rMBP a few days ago. Feels good not to have to tinker with shitty half-assed Linux distros.
>get $1000 Lenovo Yoga 700
>Intel HD5000 + Nvidia GT940M

>tearing and lag everywhere
The problem with Linux is there are over 93843290483 distros all maintained by amateurs in their spare time, which is why nothing is fucking standard and nothing works properly out of the box.
>jumps from typical lelnovo driver issues to the fallacy of no linux distro being well maintained then looping back to the being inept part
You think you're making an argument which is the saddest part.
>nothing is fucking standard
This bit about Linux distros really kills me. Nobody seems to be able to agree about fucking *anything*, ESPECIALLY when it comes to the user-facing portion, leading to shitloads of mediocrity unless the user is willing to put in the time to fix the various shortcomings and inconsistencies.
I really, really wish the community would try harder to set aside their differences and work together in a more focused and concerted manner. As it is it's utter chaos with thounsands upon thousands of needless forks and an asston of duplicated effort.
>works on my machine
The thing about Linux is that it's amazing when it works with your hardware out of the box.
When it doesn't, getting it working ranges from absolutely trivial to rabbit hole to hell.
Congrats, and welcome to the glorious Mac master race. Whenever someone points any flaw in OSX (which is flawless, btw), be sure to bash anything they say and tell them how utterly wrong they are. When the argument begins to go south, just accuse them of being poor. BTW, when you see any anti-Apple stuff on reddit, downvote them to oblivion. There are tons of us doing the same :)
This song is the story of a former Windows fanboy after he realized how Microsoft fucked over users with Windows 10:
He needs to discover Linux, though.
Which is why it isn't for everyone. Where you see a needless fork I see someone learning and proud of what they have done. The other upside is there are many alternatives and you can find what you like best.
You say chaos but I see creativity. Duplicated effort is a fact of life, just be glad some choose to learn from it.
It is about using the right tool for the job, if that is Mac for you that is fine, for some who have an interest in how computers work and whose career paths take them away from software engineering that may be linux. I owe much of my job stability to what used to be basic to anyone with a computer but now is covered in classes students need permission from the engineering department to take.
Calm down and quit caring so much about what other people are doing.
In a world where excel spreadsheets are considered by many to be advanced computing I applaud anyone who needlessly forks a project.
But doing it again should be easy.
OP here, Will check it out when I get get home, thank you.
No. I tried CTRL+C to cancel a process in terminal, nothing happened. Starting getting fucking upset cause I looked up solutions, didn't find any.
>called "putting the fun back in computing".
IMO the GNU/Linux scene would be much more fun if projects were more deliberate and well-documented; think Debian's pace and organization with Arch wiki/FreeBSD handbook quality of documentation.
Trying to troubleshoot bugs and issues with Linux stuff that hasn't been around for at least three years is probably one of the most unfun things I've ever done. Docs are rare leaving one to scour a tiny handful of forum posts, half of which never came to a solution and got a flurry of useless "works on my box" replies.
