GTK+ The GIMP toolkit (GTK+) matures to include yet another platform. This project aims to bring native GTK+ support to the Apple Mac OS X platform. The basic implementation is sponsored by Imendio AB and the work so far has been done by Anders Carlsson (of Imendio).

"I take it you slept through that class?"

i was obviously much more awake than you ever were considering that you claimed that newtons laws disproved chaos theory. perhaps you aren't aware that newtons laws came centuries before chaos theory.

The concept of Newton's Laws disproves Chaos Theory as a concept. I'm sure at some point in time you could come up with something approximate that appeared to fit what was happening, but that's all it would be - fitting what was happening. It was only when someone gained more knowledge and comprehension of what was going on (Newton) that we understood. Like I said, Chaos Theory is something you use to explain something you don't understand or comprehend. Einstein was dead right although he didn't know it, and he and us just don't have enough knowledge to explain many, many things yet. Coming up with half-cocked theories based on probability is not an explanation.

Since when was chaos theory proved anyway, and really, what's it got to do with physics? It's been widely recognised that global chaos theory and other fields of worthy study are complete bollocks. They explain nothing.

However, you've succeeded in going completely off-topic and not answering any of the points made. A round of applause.

Segedunum, you've spent a lot of time saying what you don't believe and pronouncing Mark Twain-like obituaries on business models.

Does it bother you that people are working on open source versions of OS/2, VMS, OpenStep (aka GNUstep), Windows (ReactOS), BeOS, ....? Does it bother you that people have a *choice* to work on these projects, use these projects, and form their companies around these products? Aren't there better things to do in life than trying to tear down people who have beliefs and desires that are different than yours. (Note, this does not mean they disagree with you. Their beliefs and desires came before even meeting you, so disagreement with you isn't their aim.)

Let's make this more positive. What do you believe works in the open source world and which business models work? From reading your past posts, you seem to be in favour of Red Hat's Java initiative (which is based off of GCJ, which is effectively LGPL).
