OSX, if you can afford it. There's something to be said for the experience on a closed platform.

That said, if you cannot (or won't) go Apple, then Ubuntu (or some other Debian flavor) generally has the best all-around support for laptops. There's something to be said for an eccentric billionaire supporting your organization with large no-strings-attached checks.


My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

[stevenlm87]: Needs help. I am taking an online class for perl and is using Padre. How can I get a list from the input in this code? print "What are your favorite hobbies? "; my $hobbies = <STDIN>; chomp $hobbies; print "Your favorite hobbies are '$hobbies'\n";
[toolic]: what does your input look like?
