18 Days With Snow Leopard

I have been using my mac for 3 months and I havent shared my os x experiences so far. Post title refers to longest uptime in this time period. I thought dividing my experiences in to sections would be more logical: one for end user side and one for for developer side.

First, I want to discuss end user view point of mac os x which is snow leopard and compare it to the other operating system (you got that). Any kind of software installation is killer easy, i.e. installing Snow Leopard takes 20 min.s (depends to your hardware) without annoying drivers installation and configuration steps. Also, its same for application setup, just drag & drop the file to the Applications folder, that’s it!

It is fast, very very fast when compared to other os and it uses less memory and cpu resources with less power. You can imagine how fast your os when it doesn’t run crappy viruses, antiviruses, antispywares … etc.

As a developer/architect I have used linux, windows, os x, solaris and in my opinion; the only os for a real software developer & designer is mac os x. I’m ok with linux but hacking something to work takes time which I don’t have recently. I believe linux is for more production environment not development.

Mac os x provides to developers the power of unix os with more manageability. Isn’t that awesome when you have symbolic links? Also, cross platform products, (I mean real cross platforms products not like .net which works only windows) are available for os x too and I believe future has to be independent.

In both sides, mac os x provides better hardware and software when compared alternatives with clean design. So far, I’m happy and more productive with the os that I have which is called Snow Leopard.

PS: Apple doesn’t pay me for to blog about them. But It would be nice if they denote my scientific projects

A Delayed Post

I don’t know why it takes so long to post something but significant things happened in last few weeks which made my entire life to change. I’m not going to share it at the moment, may be in time.

So, I want to mention some events that I wanted to write about but I couldn’t.
JavaDay Istanbul ’09, yes, I was there and events were based on JavaFX as JavaOne ’09. Some photos from the day.
I liked touch wall (I made this word) JavaFX demonstration, it was funny and I also, admired the women who has spoken very fast and without any break in one hour about mysql.
I know, many things happened about technology but the last one is Google Chrome OS. An OS with annoying features for Microsoft and Apple. I support you guys go ahead you really force some old guys to improve their products like Microsoft IE.

Are you there?

Yes, but I’m a little busy with work, university, personal life … etc. I know it couldn’t be a reason not to blog but I do it, I usually complain about being busy when I don’t write anything. Anyway, it has been two weeks without blogging and so many important things happened that I want to mention. I can’t talk too much about them, in brief;

First thing is Google Wave If I have to tell what I think about Google Wave in one word, it’d be amazing. Imagine that something like an operating system runs on web and it is real time. I can’t believe that Google is killing Microsoft day by day and Microsoft still sits and watches it.

Second, RIA, I had a chance to test Adobe Air with Flex 3 and Microsoft Silverlight. I’m not going to compare and contrast these two technologies but I like the idea behind Adobe Air and Flex 3.

And last one is about Windows 7, it is much better than Vista but I’m not satisfied what I’ve seen. It is faster than Vista on file operations like copy, paste …etc. However, I can’t say same thing for all. In general, it works fine but still far behind Apple’s Leopard.

I’m having trouble with my stomach for two days, I might have food poisoning but I’m not sure that, just trying to get rid of it.

I’m a rock star

Yes, I’m a rock star but not the one you already know, a geek one. Today, I’ve seen the best TV ad of 2009; Intel TV ad “Sponsors of Tomorrow”.

So, if I rearrange my top companies having best ad campaigns;

Microsoft needs a new agency, seriously.
