Windows "Eventually, we're going to see Vista come out. Yes, I know, even at this late date, Vista is still getting unexpected delays - it was set to go to manufacturing Oct. 25, but it's not going to make it - but it is on its way. My question, though, is: What version will actually work for you come that day?"

I agree with most of your points, but you have to remember, OS X inherited most of it's security philosophy and practices from Nextstep and BSD, apple just reaped the rewards. I am not saying it is a bad thing that they did that, it's just the way things are.

I'll take your word on the NeXTStep thing, since I really have no opinion on it one way or another. All I know about it is Apple took parts of it and incorporated it into OS X. But, yeah, whatever secure environment existed in BSD, Apple inherited and probably didn't do much to change.

Hey, if it works, right?
