Remember when we gave you deets on the new Parallels 3.0 last week? Good news: it's done and released already. So if you've been waiting for it with sweaty anticipation, clean yourself up and go grab a copy. Tally ho, dual OS cowboys!
ps sammy baby what drew you to mac? In networking it would seem you would stick to windows or linux just for practicality sake. And yes telnetting blows. I can see the dang routers from here but it acts like I am talking to the other side of the world.
That's a good question, and occasionally I wonder to myself how it happened too. ;)
A few years ago I was doing a side job that required me to travel to NOLA (this was pre-Katrina) for a trade show. At the time, I didn't have a laptop, just a desktop that I was dual-booting XP and Linux with. I thought, "Hey, all the well heeled UNIX heads are playing with OS X these days, maybe I'll get a Powerbook to take to the job with me." (The job paid very well, so I could afford to make a casual decision like that and write it off as an expense.)
So I did, figuring that I'd just use it as a backup machine when I got home. But it didn't work out like I planned - the more I used it, the more I liked it, especially since virtually all of the lightweight development work I was doing on servers at the time could be replicated right on the laptop, but with a super-pretty interface.
Anyway, the only reason I boot up my PC at home now is because I really liked HL 2. Now I'm considering picking up a refurbed Mac Pro to do photo editing (because my 2 year old powerbook is still in great condition, but it labors a little bit editing 12 megapixel 16-bit raw files...).
