Technology is an amazing thing. With it, we can create wonderful tools and solve very complex problems. Technology has the underlying foundation of many of the world's most powerful and memorable civilisations throughout the history of our species, and it's something that many people take very, very seriously.

Keita and I (Jason) have been using computers for the vast majority of our lives. I started out with a hand-me-down 8088 in 1994 and haven't looked back. Keita has been using machines for as long as he's been literate, if not longer. We know our way around our machines, and we use the tools we find to be the most effective. At the moment this means being heavily invested in the Apple ecosystem. But what if this isn't the most effective way to accomplish our goals? What if there are better alternatives out there?

In this podcast run, we'll discuss the possibility of making the switch from Apple's OS X to a flavour of Linux. This isn't just an OS replacement, though. There's a lot more to it. From hardware, to software, to ecosystems, we'll go over the reasons we're thinking about switching and challenge each other to justify our reasoning. The goal of this show is not only to answer our own questions before investing a great deal of time and money, but to hopefully answer some of yours.

Feel free to listen along and, if you have any questions, be sure to get in touch with us on App.net, Twitter, or through the contact form on this site.

You can find Keita as on app.net and @sleepy_keita on Twitter. I'm on app.net.
