In Builder AU, IT consultant and Java developer Ben Stringer has written a review about the move from a Linux development environment for Java to one with an Apple Power Mac G5. He covers setting up the G5, installing his development tools, and evaluating the system’s performance. While Stringer feels there are pros and cons to using a Power Mac G5 for Java development, he sums up the experience this way: “The Apple Power Mac G5 system with the cinema display made a fine Java development platform, and should be considered by anyone who likes a stable, attractive and quiet computer, and is not constrained by a budget. It was able to run all the tools I require for my development environment capably and quickly, and it was a pleasure to use.”
