Don't like to write the question in one line, so I'll write deployed, and to read it was interesting and nice reply.
The last time I was drawn to Apple. It started after quite a long vremeni conducted in complianee kernel Gentoo a couple of attempts to collect LFS, etc., etc. Probably wanted "stability" and "just worked".
And it just so happens that we had the opportunity to order a new computers. And I thought — why not? Going to order a iMac with a simple (more bosses will raise a punishing look and will be sent to hell, because the notion of a computer is the monitor, and they really do not understand why it can cost under 100k)
And immediately raised a few questions for avid MacOS users, I hope you give a full answer =)
So, let's begin.
1. For work I need AutoCAD, but since "no money" and "here's another, to buy such an expensive thing," he we all have is a pirate. On the rutreker I found autocad for the Mac. The question is — is it difficult to put on poppy the pirate cracked. Or is there in Windows?
2. As I recall, the version of VirtualBox is and under the poppy, i.e. in the extreme case I can do as I did working in the Ubuntu — dev, it XP, it academic?
3. Is there any for the Mac at all free. Or is it just for the money in the AppStore (Mac opponents claim he is)
And finally — what do you think, is it worth it?
