Now I can compile, make and install packages! I can do things in the terminal that took me months to figure out in DOS, and I'm loving that it's easy enough to do when you don't want to do the nerdiness. And it cleans up real nicely; people are always asking how I get my Windows box so nice on the desktop threads It's for sure an experience that every geek must seriously try. Fun, flexible, and so much cool stuff! After I get my Mac box, I don't think I will be going back to Windows. I will be using my mac for all the Adobe software and video production... but I think that's it.
