Long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a little kid visited a science museum and saw a little marvel: an Apple Macintosh computer. Since that day, I've been allured by any computer displaying an apple logo.
Thanks to a friend, I've been in contact with Macs since System 7. Being from Europe, Macs were always prohibitively expensive. With my friend, I lived all System 7, 8, and 9. I remember learning with him to use Quark Xpress and playing F-16 Flight Simulator and, of curse, Marathon!
Not so long ago, I moved to the US of A and, as a Linux user of many years, I could not get myself to buy a Windows laptop. So I got my first Mac, my own Mac, a little wonder called iBook G4 12". Since then, it's been a workhorse, traveling all over and generating lusting gazes from any person around. Later came a couple of 7x00 Power Macintosh.
As I was getting tired of solving Windows support calls from my family, I got my sister a Mac Mini, my wife an iMac and my dad a MacBook. Now I only get calls about family get-together, no more tech support calls.
One day, my wife surprised me with a Cube! This shows beyond any doubt how much she loves me :'-)
Fast forward a couple of years, and I listen on TWIT's Mac Break Weekly (or was it the Macworld podcast?) this nice chap from the RetroMacCast talk about classic Mac computers. And I subscribed to it on January, 13th, 2009. Since then, I've been listening to all episodes; currently I'm on Episode 79. One day I will catch up :)
For the future, I'd like to get a little little marvel (a retro Apple Macintosh) to be displayed at home.
