Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

This is the sort of pack mentality amongst even developers, and not just rabid users, that hacks me off about the open source 'community'.

Good thing that never happens with closed source development because what you cant seedoesn't exist.
Considering how utterly abysmal much closed source software this kind of behavior and thinking is obviously not specific to open source.
