Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

If you don't understand and know how to really get under the hood of the Unix side of OSX then I can understand how you would feel like OS X can't be for geeks that like to tinker. I feel there is far more tinkering one can do with OS X then can be done on Windows. Think about all the open source software, servers etc available to the Unix part of OS X. It is amazing how many things you can install and do from the command line. Plus all the built-in tools, such as Curl for FTP on the command line and for scripting, CUPS, and on and on. I have quite a few apps that I wrote to automate some of the powerful command line apps that are installed as part of OS X. Fun stuff for a tweaker!


the point is that 99% of macOSX user don't bother at all, because that is far from the mac user culture (as much a writing a virus/trojan for a mac )
