Re: Programming on a MAC

Posted 01 November 2012 - 01:26 PM

I develop software using a Macbook Pro, for eventual installation on a Linux server. It is great for this, as it's UNIX-based, and has a 'proper' commandline.

These are the tools I use:

* Eclipse
* VMWare Fusion (I have a Linux 'sandbox' VM which is the same spec as the server I deploy on)
* Cornerstone (SVN client)
* Macports (you can use this to download alternatives for most commands you would use on the Linux command line)
* VIM

Most of the time, I am in the command line, or Eclipse.

I found XCode great when I used it to develop simple C++ applications. I haven't used it for a long period.

Actually I wasn't expecting any great answers here. I was asking to gain insight as to what other people were doing. Obviously most of you don't do anything worthwhile other than look for something to gripe about. For those of you who gave helpful insights I appreciate it.

I would still consider someday getting a Mac...I think the OS is pretty nice these days. Not sure I really agree with their direction in hardware at this point though...I am speaking of the 21" Imac which can't be upgraded once you buy it. I think if they keep going in that direction that will be the death of the IMAC.

I think at this point I would consider getting the $799 Mac Mini.
