far as i know Os X is BSD based ..
And i thought they posted windows out to people for free ;P
I don't think apple would actually give a toss ... they want you to use
their machines not somebody elses.. Maybe if everyone wanted to "pay" for it
then apple might look into it .. but until then shouting "i want a fast
stable quicktime player for Linux/Bsd for free!" will be like taking a piss
against the wind. They have nothing to profit from it except listening to
people bitching about how buggy the would be prog is.

WMware isn't always a great solution. The computer you want to run
Quicktime on mightn't be powerful enough to run two OS' simultaneously. Or
maybe like me, the individual might not own a copy of a Microsoft OS (Not
quite true, I think I have a DOS 6.22 diskset somewhere).
What most people here would probably be looking for is a player that runs
natively on *nix. Which means that the way forward is to keep beating
over the head until they give in.
Or if OS X has quicktime support try to bring it across, though not being a
programmer, I don't know how feasible that would be.
