Catch it while you can!” Read the full interview at MacSlash. 4 Comments 2002-12-18 2:15 am All well and good until he metions using X-Serve servers for compiling and all. This smacks of Apple marketing and not true computer coding. Subtle but ruined the “interview.” Vic 2002-12-18 2:39 am Hey, Not really. He’s talking about something analagous to: http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-osfarm.html?d… except it’s on a package-for-the-masses level instead of for Joe Developer. A step forward. It’d be something like gentoo without having to do all the messy compiling of the packages/environment/system yourself (‘cuz we all know that it’d use some sort of system configuration file to tell the compiler how to target the build…) Peace, ‘Rithm 2002-12-18 6:42 am considering that DarwinPorts is hosted by the OpenDarwin project and OpenDarwin is sitting on an Xserve — i think this makes sense… 2002-12-18 3:21 pm Steve Jobs is such a control freak. When a person of Hubbard’s stature has to have his answers screened, it’s ridiculous. And, this is to be his last interview? I love Macs, always have, always will, but this sort of thing is so Jobsian. Apple will post software updates and then pull them with no explanation, same with TIL articles, etc. Then they reappear with no explanation and everyone is left wondering what the deal is. I’m way off topic, so I’ll shut up and stop ranting.
