I found out first thing this morning that Douglas Adams, the author of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy died yesterday at the age of 49. Not only was he a very humorous writer, but he was also a big Macintosh fan and I’m sorry to hear that he has passed on.
Maccentral offers additional thoughts: “I’ve been a Macintosh user for as long as there have been Macintoshes, right from the very first one,” Adams said to Apple. “It was elegantly thought out, intuitive, and it was such a pleasure to use that you wanted to hug it. It was also ludicrously slow and underpowered, of course, but that was a small price, as Butch Cassidy said in the movie, to pay for beauty.”
