Humor Every now and then, you come across things that make the internet worthwhile. So yeah, there's this whole genitalia length comparing competition going on between Adobe and Apple, where both companies are actually arguing, with straight faces, which of the two is more open (which to me comes across as Mario and Zelda arguing over who's less of a sell-out). Luckily, though, there's the internet to make us laugh.

Your timing is off. Mac OS (on the 680x0 at least), ran better than Windows 95/95. I never had trouble with communications dropping the way I did with Windows, which is why I relied on OS/2 on 80x86 machines.


Oh, you mean it ran better because of lack of any memory protection (which was optional... go figure) or because applications need to specifically designed to use preemptive multitasking and, if not designed that way, MacOS was using a cooperative multitasking with all apps sharing a single process? ;-) So when your calculator app banged, ALL processes needed to be closed...

Hell, Windows 3.x had memory protection and in Windows95 all apps used preemptive multitasking without requiring to be specifically designed for that.
