CHUCK:  Hey everybody, and welcome to Episode 60 of the JavaScript Jabber Show. This week on our panel, we have AJ O’Neal.

AJ:  Yo! Coming at you live from roughly an hour outside of Philly.

CHUCK:  Awesome. We also have Joe Eames.

JOE:  Hey there.

CHUCK:  Merrick Christensen.

MERRICK:  Hey guys.

CHUCK:  And I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.tv. This week, we’re going to be talking about our development environments, setups, desk space, chairs, whatever. I’m really curious to see what way you guys have and what wisdom you have to offer.

Yeah, let’s get into it. The first thing that I want to ask is, the semi-holy war between Windows machines and Macs and Linux machines. What are you guys all using for your development?

MERRICK:  I use Mac. I feel so lost anytime I’m on a Windows machine and set.

AJ:  I only use operating systems. So, the only two that I know of that are readily available are Mac and Linux.

CHUCK: [Laughter] How about you, Joe?

JOE:  I use both, significantly.

CHUCK:  Both, meaning both Windows and Mac?

JOE:  OSX and Windows. I don’t use Linux.

CHUCK:  Awesome. I mostly use Macs.
