PowerBook G4

I am a long user of Windows OS (at home) and various distro of Linux (at office). While looking for a notebook as a mobile device, I found out that my wife's PowerBook G4 quite interesting. Powered with Leopard Mac OS X 10.5.8, I realize that this device has a gorgeous look (very very intuitive UI) and powerful inside (I talk about the kernel, which is BSD-based kernel). Anyone who is familiar with Linux, will fastly adapt to work using the Terminal. The CLI included is almost as complete as the linux's tools I'm using at office. And if that's not enough, I can add and customize yourself using MacPorts. Equipped with this Terminal, I can do my works as an engineer flawlessly. And I have the benefit of using the beautiful and simple UI when I want to use it to develop a website.

The only drawback I found, this PowerBook G4 is not using Intel Processor (yet!). This is, only a little, bothering me when I want to run .exe (32bit windows application) files. But, I can live with that (at least for now) :D

I'll back to you, with reviews of any mac apps that I've been using. Stay put! :)
