Mac OS X Late last night (CET), we reported on the story that the VLC project needed more developers for the Mac version of this popular video player, or else the Mac variant may disappear. Just about every website out there reported on this issue, but it turns out it all got a bit exaggerated (on the internet? Surely you jest...). We spoke to VLC developer Pierre d'Herbemont to clarify the issue, and they've also put up a wiki page about the so-called demise of the Mac version of VLC. He also detailed what, exactly, they meant by "Apple is blocking us".

rather than a slow and buggy product, not ready for prime time (but with perpetual "awesome nightlies!")


I find this to be a gross mis-characterization of what things were really like. I've been using Firefox since it was Phoenix and started somewhere around the .5 series. Back then I was still on Windows and up till then was (of course) an IE 6 user. Was Phoenix perfect back then? No. Did it have some bugs? Yes. But it was easily a better browsing experience than IE 6, even in that state. I give big time props to the devs for getting things working so well so quickly.
