I needed a laptop one day
But I new what the salesman would say:
"An Apple a day, keeps the doctor away
If you buy Hewlett Packard you're knackered!"

I wouldn't touch Apple with a full hazard suit and a bargepole.

I had one to work on once for a customer and there was little I could do to help.
Even their software on other machines clogs the whole machine up with software and is pretty much impossible to remove since it puts hooks into nearly every section in the registry.
It is often easier to re-install from scratch.

Subject description: changing to software
 

nomadBSD

Last night on distrowatch
I did see
nomadBSD

Thought in my head
that's BSD, not mad?
No, they said it's nomad!

nomad like EasyOS?

Let's try and see:
dd'ed it to USB
Launched on my 2 boxes
what did I see?

nomadBSD with i915 looks nice
with gma500 no go
a wannabe nomad
no nomad
yes mad, so sad.
really sad and slow.

nomad is no go and thicker
but Easy is quicker.
