Convergence: Mac, Unix, Linux

I wrote my regular biweekly column yesterday for The Seattle Times about encountering the growing convergence of Mac OS X and Unix/Linux uses. At the O'Reilly Mac OS X Conference back at the beginning of the month, it was pretty extraordinary to see Titanium after Titanium running mostly OS X, but quite a few with single or multiple boots into flavors of Linux and (mostly) BSD Unix.

I'm not the only one charting this convergence: Doc Searls has written about it extensively, and in InfoWorld this week, Jon Udell, who was also at the conference, checks in on the same subject on the developer and technical side of the fence. (InfoWorld devoted a big chunk of the current issue to a special feature on Apple in the enterprise.)
