Windows Ars Technica is running an interesting article about the Mail application on Windows 8. It's one of the first party Metro applications, and Ars' conclusion is that it's really, really not up to snuff - it can't even compare favourably to the mail application on Windows Phone. The sad thing is, however - this applies to virtually all Metro applications.

RE[5]: Too many platforms

I tried Netscape 4 on a Linux 2.6.32, works without problems. Just have to install some older libraries through my package manager.

Interesting. I have incompatibilities in libstdc++, where the ABI has changed so I can't simultaneously support NS4 and anything else...

"What Mac OS X from the early days are now deprecated?

Don't just reflect the things I said about Win32 on Cocoa, this is stupid.

I didn't, this point was purely OS X from the outset. Note the original poster was talking OS X, not Cocoa.

Why on earth do you reference "Carbon" here?

Well, it's still OS X, which is what the original poster was referring to.

But you see the same with Cocoa too, just with simple googling...
