This morning I recieved a tweet from an “internet friend” of mine by the name of Don McAllister. If you don’t know Don and you use a Macintosh you owe it to yourself to check out screencastsonline. He does weekly “screencasts” or videos taking of software in action, and basically lets you take software packages for a ride without even installing the software on your own Mac. Pretty cool!
Anyway, Don has a personal blog as well called My Own Reality. His brother recently purchased his first Mac, a MacBook. Apparently Don’s brother told him that with his switch to Macintosh his days of installing “cracked or dodgy” software was over. Don muses about this and his own feelings and why Mac users seem to feel this way almost universally. I have to admit, I feel the same way, I just don’t do it. Why, most software is priced reasonably, a lot of cool software is free and a great majority of the software is very good.
He’s a good guy, even if he does live across the pond.
