Nice episode! I also went from OS X to Linux, and I very much agree with the "i don't want steal your software because i don't believe it's worth as much as you think it's worth" thing. Cool stuff.

Interesting journey

Interesting ep. I find I prefer to hear the opinions of people who, in the normal course of conversation, point out the distinction between the l-i-n-k-s and l-y-n-x clients. :-)

I am currently exploring my own OS virtualization trollop dark side. I am unrepentant so far even though there are virtual HD files waist-deep across my actual HD...

Good show!

Hey, It was really interesting to hear this journey from the other perspective. It's pretty easy to assume that people have come moved from Windows to free software, but for some reason I don't imagine many people going from Apple to free software. Thanks for the insight! Oh, and I have an interest in virtualisation too so it was good to hear about that too. :)
