Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

It seems there's one or two angry people voting down perfectly valid comments. If you don't think what's being said is right, please take the time to respond and enlighten us.

And finally, a plea for OSNews maintainers: it would be nice to see who is voting down just for the sake of it.

Don't be bothered by the voting system so much, a higher score won't benefit you at all. At best it tells how many people think the same as you, thus how unoriginal you are.

Unfortunately a lower score makes your post "invisible". Well not completely, but you (the reader) needs to take an extra step to see a modded-down post. I've modded up posts that people have modded down simply because (to me) it appeared they were doing so out of some sort of bias.
