Least frustrating system

stevenf​.com:

I don’t con­sid­er myself blind­ly brand-loy­al to the Mac.

I know, right? Co-founder of a indie Mac soft­ware com­pa­ny?

I find Mac OS X to be the least frus­trat­ing of the cur­rent­ly avail­able options, but the buck cer­tain­ly doesn’t stop there. We have miles and miles to go in terms of mak­ing com­put­ing bet­ter. I want my socks blown off, and I don’t care whether it’s Apple, Microsoft, Google, or the open source move­ment that does it, as long as some­one does.

I hope that mak­ing it1 Some­one Else’s Prob­lem will work out for you. If you put your faith in Apple/Microsoft/Google, or even in the open source move­ment, you can expect what you get. Since at least I can par­tic­i­pate in the open source move­ment, if it doesn’t blow off socks, I can say that’s my fault2.

  1. “total usabil­i­ty utopia”, for lack of a more all-encom­pass­ing word
  2. in part, of course :)
