OSX Server, appcelerator, and the iOS SDK

Well, I finally did it. I installed OSX on VirtualBox. Normally, I am pretty anti-apple, and I still maintain they are evil. But after using OSX for a bit, I can say that a lot of my opinions on it were informed more by Apple corporate policy than how it actually functions. It is, after all, a pretty fun OS.

I will be glad to finally be able to code in TextMate.

Right now I am still DLing the massive iOS SDK, 3.5gigs, oi!

I am not saying I have fully converted to iFaggotry just yet, and constantly having to type these lower case i’s is really annoying, but I will say that I am not as uncomfortable about using OSX as I thought I would be.

I have also setup App Accelerator Titanium, basically at the request of a client who wants an iPhone app developed, or at least is thinking it over, so I decided to look at some options and come up with a nice treatment on what it would take.

As an unrepentant nerd, the idea of using a new OS is kinda cool, so I am trying to have as much fun as possible.
