Mac OS X Hi, I'm Thom Holwerda and I jailbreak my iPhone. There, I said it. Some suggest all jailbreakers only do it to pirate applications, but those of us familiar with the practice know there's a whole load of other reasons, the biggest of which is customisation. The iOS isn't pleasing to look at in my book, and hence, jailbreaking allows me to make my iPhone pretty. Jay 'saurik' Freeman, the man behind the Cydia App Store, is going to bring Cydia to the Mac, to bring the kind of customisation options from Cydia to the Mac.

"it's unforgivable Apple hasn't implemented this."

if it is unforgivable, why than you still use Apple iPhone? ;)

and

"Now that I'm using my MacBook Air, I'm reminded of just how cumbersome and clunky Mac OS X can be compared to Windows 7 and Linux (they still haven't fixed the Finder - either Apple is entirely oblivious to a decade's worth of complaints, or they're really short on developers)."

lol! yes, yes... Windows GUI is so much better that Mac OS X... not!

I do not see what Mac Cydia will change?!? You have for last 3 decades third party application that modify Mac OS. So what will Mac Cydia change?

Because I'm not rich, nor does OSNews have a wealthy parent company which can give me free shit. We're not Engadget, Gizmodo, Ars Technica, etc.

So, you were rich when you bought it, or did that purchase make you poor?

I'm not calling you stupid, I'm just suggesting that perhaps you caught 'early adopter syndrome'.

I did that with the Sega Saturn. "It dropped to $200, and comes with 5 games! That's all I want for x-mas!"
You can imagine how that turned out.

I did have alot of fun with it, and I'm glad I never had to put it on its side or upside-down (thing still works perfectly!!).

Automatic updating and dependency resolution.

PS,
Did you just say "...NOT!"?
Are you wearing Zubaz?
Do you have a mullet?

I'm sorry, but... wow.

EDIT: PPS,
Yes, I know that's not a real apology. I'm not really sorry.
I see a joke to be said, and I say it.

Some people really like the Windows UI, myself included. I really love the Windows 7 UI. It is subjective.
