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".

I'd argue that being native on OS X is about as important as being native on BeOS.

Sure, you can get something else to run, but it'll suck in comparison.

Or to put it in a less gentle way:

You can put Grandma in a dress and take her to prom, but it doesn't mean she's going to get lucky.
