Using a Mac in a Windows world

As a "SQL Server guy" first and foremost, I often have to defend my use of a Mac both as a travel and presentation laptop, and as my primary development workstation.  Today over on my work-related blog, I penned a story explaining my experiences, why I chose to switch platforms for much of my work, and what kind of problems this has caused for me.  It occurred to me tonight that, since I am doing a good portion of my SQL Server development from a Mac, that it might be interesting to some of the readers over here on at least one angle.  If you are thinking about getting a MacBook for travel, or a Mac Pro / iMac for day-to-day usage, or just want to laugh at what a helpless fanboy I've become, please feel free to read my story.
