Mac frustration

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
This is a rant.

I just want to get on with some django development. I'd like to have my web application display user upload images. So I need PIL. But to get it I've got to compile it from source and hence need XCode, or use pip (which needs llvm-gcc-4.2, and hence needs me to install XCode), or use random instructions from the web that might or might not work.

I don't want to write Mac software, why should I need XCode? I don't have to sign into some store to install software on a linux computer, I think it's bullshit to have to sign in to install something that is listed as being $0.
 
The sooner I get a decent operating system (like Debian) installed on this MacBook Air the happier I'll be.
