Ubuntu 11.10 vs Mac Air

It seems that I am jumping between these things. Now I am back with big laptop and ubuntu 11.10. Mac is hooked up to my desktop display to handle business emailing and PDF creation with stability. But development, nothing beats Linux in there.

Now I have my Thinkpad EDGE with latest ubuntu again in one project and I already enjoy following things (compared to Mac):
  • SSH read/write mounts :: These are essential if you work with remote Linux servers.
  • Disk space. My 64 GB SSD is showing almost 50 GB free after I have Ubuntu installed. Compare that to Mac Air 64 GB disk which is always full.
  • N9 integration. SSH mount to N9 and off you fly, compared to iTunes struggling.
