A Switcher's Tale: PC to Mac: Back and Forth

"It's true. I'm switching to a Mac. Of course, I'll be switching back to a PC shortly after, and then switching back to the Mac sometime later, and then back and forth - switching from Mac to PC and vice versa - for the foreseeable future."

Confirmation of the "use the right tool for the job" mantra. A longtime Microsoft blogger is switching to a Mac, but not abandoning Windows. He claims that "... the goal is to be comfortable enough to move between machines and use the best tools on each one with as little friction as possible." Makes sense to me. This article generated lots and lots of comments, predictably flaming the author from both the Microsoft and Apple camps, interspersed with some discussions on running this type of setup using a shared keyboard and mouse (Synergy software on the PC and on the Mac). An interesting read.
