OS X who?
by guppetto on Sun 26th Jun 2005 08:12 UTC

With OS X appearing on X86 PC starting next year, this is just the kind of news KDE and Linux needs in preparation for the upcoming eye candy wars of 2006. XGL may be the final answer, but a quick fix at this point is a major shot in the arm for the OS that was supposedly soon to be on a respirator because of apple's big news. Now the only thing that's really needed are some step by step instructions of how to add this hack for non developers. Good thing I don't have that problem, because I'm a developer. This hack is sweet and fast.
