Apple As I was casually browsing around today, I came across this blog post. It's about the recently released VLC media player for the iPad, which you can use to play just about any video under the sun on your iPad. The blog post is a complaint about a bit of help text that's not properly rendered inside the application - annoying, but no dealbreaker. Until I actually read the text - this is how you're supposed to get content on your iPad?

is a POS (and I am not talking point of sale) that makes even windows media player look good, and is used primarily as an initiator to : "Well it works just fine on Mac it is windows fault that user switching is ...*blah*...maybe you should try a Mac". Which just irritates the heck out of me, especially in light of "all user data is lost on OS X when switching to multi user environment" bug thingy ...


Stop being a lying scumbag; the 'data bug' is related to a guest account:

How many people use a guest account on their Mac? the number could probably fit into a telephone booth with enough space left for a pole dancer to strut her stuff. The number of people affected but it? bugger all. Has the bug been fixed? yes it has.

Come back and tell me when you've written a large complex piece of software without a single bug and then I might remotely care about your 'contribution' to the discourse.

If I am a "lying scumbag" (needles to say I deeply disagree with that label), how come you didn't refute me. After all it is beyond the point as to how many people use the guest account. The point is that a serious OS should deal with this in a proper manner. The way OS X did reeks of half baked OS!!

No, this is what you said:

"all user data is lost on OS X when switching to multi user environment" bug thingy


Which has never existed, the bug was relating to the guest account and NOTHING to do with 'switching to multi user environment'. Research your posts or GTFO.
