Edd, formerly a steadfast Ubuntu user of many years experience, now develops Rails applications and makes clear his appreciation of OS X as a Rails dev environment, especially using TextMate:
Developing Rails applications on a Mac is sweet, and yes, TextMate really is that good. My jilted .emacs languishes in lonely misery.
Edd’s opinions reflect his particular circumstances and current interests, but it got me wondering about other Linux-to-OS X switchers who write code: why did they choose Mac?
