Mac OS X "It's no longer possible to write a single app that takes advantage of the full range of Mac OS X features. Some APIs only work inside the Mac App Store. Others only work outside it. Presumably, this gap will widen as more new features are App Store-exclusive, while sandboxing places greater restrictions on what App Store apps are allowed to do." Anybody surprised by this, here's the clue stick. Please proceed to hit yourself with it.

How much time is left until Apple will lock the bootloader on Macs making necessary to jailbreak/root the device if you want to install Windows or Linux or BSD ?

Isn't being able to run Windows via Boot Camp or Parallels a selling point for Intel Macs? How many people buy Macs and don't run OS X as the primary OS?

That's me ;) I have 3 Macs and if they ever remove Boot Camp they will definitely loose me as a customer... I really just like the hardware.

To me OSX is like a really high-end Belgium Ale. I drink it occasionally and when I do I really enjoy it, but I can't handle it every damn day. Most of the time I just want a Bud...
