I’m a Linux guy; Windows was never my thing honey
Apple seemed interesting, but required too much money
I have ideological problems with Apple too,
What with all the DRM and hardware lock-in they do.
But people are crazy about Apple, and I used to wonder why,
I had a dream: to own Apple products that I didn’t have to buy.
A few months back my wife gifted me an iPhone, bro!
And then at work I got the new Macbook Pro!!
Thus suddenly I was an Apple user,
Sure, some people called me a sore loser.
Allow me to share my early experiences,
Some accolades and some grievances.
I’ll try to keep a neutral tone,
Shall focus on the Mac and not the iPhone.
Integration, integration, integration!
The attention to detail gives a wonderful sensation.
User experience is the key,
Excellent design is for all to see.
They’ve taken care of the enterprises,
Exchange support, Google integration — no surprises.
It’s by far the best laptop I’ve ever used,
The hardware is slick, the software is smooth.
But boy do I hate iTunes,
It’s so broken it should be called Looney Tunes.
Try connecting multiple iPhones to the same device,
Or plug your iPhone in another laptop (poor advice).
Sync is threatening, sounds like a bully.
“I shall sync or destroy”, that just sounds silly.
The Terminal app should aspire higher,
No 256-color support leaves much to desire.
Keyboard shortcuts are hard to find,
Change them? you must be out of your mind!
“Features” like “Spaces” are overrated,
More like awaited, belated and deflated.
I’m certainly not blown away,
But a Mac is convenient, I have to say.
