There’s an interview up with the creator of mach_inject, the OSS libraries that lets many apps override functions in any running process to change its behavior. It is very long, and touches on everything from compilers on the PowerPC to Apple’s difficulties in breaking into the business market and why WebObjects is dying.

I enjoyed every minute of reading this. A great and informative interview.
this is one of the best things I have read posted by OSNews in a long time!
one of those reads that leaves you feeling smarter. a pleasent change of pace for osnews 😉
Big chunks of this were kinda over my head, but on the whole I really enjoyed this piece.
Very to the point about what is wicked keen in OSX and what needs work.
(And now I have few more things to research. )
