Big Software and VMs
In the last 12 months, I have been involved in 2 separate projects which required me to run a specific coding environment on a Windows VM. Now before you go hating, let me reassure you that I have plenty of respect for those who develop on a PC. This [rant] is not in reference to PC vs Mac. Some of my best friends use Windows. No. Both projects were based on Java frameworks (cross platform friendly, right?) from two of the biggest software companies on the planet. Yet, the dev software only worked in Windows.
Big Software, there are a lot of developers who use Macs (and Linux based os's) to develop, and the number is growing.
By the way, it wasn't Oracle or Microsoft.
