I have been thinking of getting a new computer and I have been Kind of drawing towards a Mac. Mainly because I just like doing things differently. I was wondering if Macs had any benifits over a PC. Or maybe what some other peoples takes on Macs over PC. Thanks! [ November 14, 2005: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
Seriously, OS X is a wonderful environment for Java. Not only do you get the stability of OS X, you get a true Unix command line.
The only drawback I can think of is because Sun does not provde a Java implementation for OS X you usually need to wait a bit for Apple to come out with the latest and greatest version. This hasn't been an issue for me since I don't adopt new Java versions until they've been out for a while and well tested.
