linux claims to be easy to use like OS X. in my recent experience, it isn't. it's still a total pain just to install stuff like Rails. tutorials happily tell me where to get RPMs of a dozen things. When I try apt-get (package manager) it can't find all the dependencies it needs to even install ruby. A tutorial tells me to compile and install rubygems from source.
Even the linux-like application package managers for OS X work better than the originals. I never had any trouble with Darwin Ports.
I'm not saying linux is bad. It's a good thing and it's improving. I'm just saying OS X is easier and more friendly.
and don't tell me i did it wrong. that's beside the point. i used google for a while. i still didn't figure out a pleasant way to install a rails environment. that's way too hard.
