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".

Enjoy all the stress

Dude, what *stress*?

Its not like these different GUI-based apps are really, fundamentally that different from one another. They've all got windows, buttons, checkboxes, menus, etc.

My idea of stress is trying to parse one of g++'s template instantiation errors (usually about 2 screens long). That's stress. Using a (slightly different) GUI is not.

Seriously, stress?
