Mwhahahahahaha. What is this peace of crap;
"I have to reboot to install the Quicktime mpeg plugin. What's up with that? I can't believe that I had to reboot the machine just to install the mpeg2 codec player for QuickTime."

This guy doesn't know that quicktime is part of the OS and that the Quicktime app is just a front end.

"That is just so lame it's funny. Especially given that they are using the Mach Microkernel which is incredibly inefficient in part because it is a micro-kernel."
looooool. The micro-kernel of mac os X isn't used as a micro-kernel. Anyone that has only read the documentation of Mac OS X knows that.


"They take the efficiency hit of a micro-kernel but they still don't have a modular system to the point that even a codec needs a reboot?!?"
cf. up.

"Other bugs? Malicious web pages can install dashboard widgets. Egad! Didn't we hate pre-SP2 XP for allowing this? "

Was fixed ONE WEEK AFTER Tiger was out.

"Who would have thought that a decade after the famous 1984 Big Brother ad, it would be Apple with the highly controlled largely cathedral OS and IBM would be spending hundreds of millions of dollars on code it allows anyone to share and to contribute to? "

The most funny, this guy think that IBM loves the linux community. He doesn't understand that they are all working for free for IBM.

Your link is just another link to a guy that doesn't like Apple.

Doesn't change the fact that it actually makes no sense that Qt is part of the OS. I wonder why no one ever sued Apple for not being able to remove Qt from the OS... ;) .

looooool. The micro-kernel of mac os X isn't used as a micro-kernel. Anyone that has only read the documentation of Mac OS X knows that.

Indeed true. Mac OS X uses a hybrid kernel, just like the WinNT kernel.

Yup. Apple tries to achieve the same with Darwin, only it isn't as succesfull.

Because Apple sells the hardware AND the software. It is pretty different.
Anyway, if this guy want to read mpeg-2 without rebooting, he just has to install mplayer or VLC.

Wrong way to look at it. IBM is working for free for us, the Linux community.

You can say that, but IBM is the one with cash in their pockets.
