- I use linux and OS X simultaneously on the same screen.
A Gefen KVM switch works now reliably in a 1900x1200 resulution.
Unfortunately, DVI/USB switches are still quite expensive and nothing seems to work
well for larger resolutions.
- Windows compatibility: Parallels (mostly to test things) and bootcamp (for games)
solve all the needs.
- I use case sensitively formated external hard drives to bypass the
insensitivity of the HFS filesystem.
- I always have to be careful about things like cp -r test.key/ ~/desktop
which move all keynote files in test.key onto the desktop with the need to cleanup zillions of
files. This is different from
cp -r test.key ~/desktop
which does, what one expects. In linux, both commands do the same. The hickup happens often
because the bash commandline completion (using [tab]) always adds a slash at the end.
- On my Happy Hacking Keyboards, there is no key for
opening the CD tray. But the commandline helps drutil tray open
or drutil tray close.
- Despite the lack of a CAPS key, happy hacking keyboard rarely
switch into CAPS. In case, it does, solves it.
- In OS X it is possible that the window size can become too large to be adjusted. This can happen for
example due to a screen resolution change (presentation). For webbrowsers, the sceen size
into the address bar.
- My wishlist for the iPod Touch (Oct 2007):
- sync PDF's in the iTunes library with the ipod.
- Safari to download pictures and put them into the Photo folder.
- A todo list.
