I have been recently trading emails with Basquette, who describes herself as a recently separated, mother, writer, blogger, and newly minted as a solo practitioner. What have we been talking about … Macs, of course. About two weeks ago, Basquette swiched from a PC to a Mac, and she has written a series of posts on her entertaining blog, the basquette case, about her experience. Some of her quotes about the conversion are:
I know it’s just a computer. But for the briefest of moments, I … sheesh … I get the Rabid Mac Freaks. I don’t condone it, mind you, but I get it.
- I wanted to show those remaining skeptics out there that in this, at
least, the RMFs are right: it works right out of the box, without any
- It’s been a week, give or take. And what I’ve found is that while the initial giddiness might have worn off ever
so slightly, it didn’t wear off by much and the experience is still
vastly different (in a good way) from the initial use of any Windows PC
or laptop I’ve ever played with.
You can read some of Basquette’s posts for her first hand account of her "conversion": switch-hitter; was it as good for you as it was for me?; and the adventures of mac babe, part 2. She has a penchant for provocative titles (which I borrowed for the title of this post) and a distate for uppercase letters (e.e. cummings would be proud), and her blog is both great and unique for it! I’d say "you go girl" but that would make my middle-aged male whiteness even more comical than it already is.
