Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

Interesting thought Thom,
Ik kan ook eits nederlaandse gerspeeken, mar om dat ik nooit nar in sckool in Holand gewiest mijn gebruik van U tall is helemaal gesprooken.
To answer your point, yes Apple could be a LOT more confident and relaxed about Pystar but if Apple wanted to LICENSE OS X to the great unwashed masses then it could do so, IF it wanted to. The reason it does not is because it has ALWAYS put customers ahead of profits. If Apple licensed OS X it would become the biggest vendor overnight, just as it became the biggest Unix vendor overnight when it replaced OS 9 with OS X. However... this would mean dealing with endless compatibility issues which it has never had to worry about. It also means true ongoing plug and play for Mac users.
tot siens!
