Just followed the /. link there and was wandering thru the apple website.
I was reading up about the kernel and how it "is based on Mach 3.0
from Carnegie-Mellon University and FreeBSD 3.2". Pretty nifty!
And then I saw......"Mac OS X debuts with public pledges of support from
more than 100 developers, including Adobe Systems, Microsoft, Quark,
Macromedia, Palm Computing, id Software......"
So does this mean that M$ would be bringing out what is essentially fbsd
products? (ok so IE for HP-UX already exists, but you know what I mean!),
and yeah they'd probably be all linked into this new cocoa suite, but if
you could port the cocoa libs, then thoeritically M$ could port any
product off OSX onto fbsd/linux? Right/Wrong? I mean they probably won't
but it does open the door for the possibilty and make walking thru the
door even easier!
I am probably totally way off the mark with this (wouldn't be the first
time) but interesting developments none the less......those G4's are
beginning to look rather desireable! :-)
