Apple "It's not that I despise Apple or the wonderful products it showcases year after year, but the fact that almost every first generation Apple product has serious quality assurance issues bugs me beyond belief. Let's take a look at two of Apple's most successful products, the company's portable music player and its notebook series."

Not Unix, huh...? Is a MicroKernel not a Kernel?

I guess they are guilty of false advertisment..

http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/unix/

Can I run X (the windowing system) on Mac OS X?
-YES

Can I run Gnome, KDE, on Mac OS X?
-YES

What about the Darwin Project, is that NOT Unix...?

Or the other tasks and jobs that UNIX can do, now done with Mac OS X.....?
-YES

and about this E-commerce you speak of...
this is true on that end, but when it comes to Mission Critical Task.....like, ummmmm, space travel, securing banks, and government networks....you just dont use Windows for that....(Ebay is currently using Sun Solaris, is that E-commerce?)

Besides, Unix is the REASON we are able to even have this discussion ONLINE in the first place.....so who gives a flip about microsoft....
