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".

Exaggerated? That's understating the case a bit.... how about *dead wrong*!?

Yes, well, that's really the whole joke, isn't it?

The allusion is to a quote attributed to Mark Twain, who was reported to be dying in London. He told the man who found him at his house in New Haven something like "the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."
