Comment on "Complexity is Too Expensive"
by Nathaniel Nutter — Jul 11
Mark's essays got me thinking, and I really do agree with everything he said at least as far as data preservation goes. The problem is the data he is talking about, his videos, photos, music, documents, emails, etc. derives much of its value from being easy to create. I came really close to switching to Linux several times over the past 10 years or so. It really seems like no matter how much Linux improves there is always some problem that keeps it from "just working."

Like I said, the value of Apple's software (and many third-party cocoa developers') is that things are usually so easy to do and that makes it easy to create. I am have more control over my data than I do over my creative abilities so for now I am a Mac guy, and I suspect that will not change.
