    Looking at the video, it strikes me that Apples "continuity" effort is their internal solution to the "convergence" issues that have detracted (IMHO) from other OS's in the past few years. I'm...

    Please understand that, short of releasing their driver as FOSS, Apple is doing the right thing here. Binary firmware blobs are a bad thing, and the only thing that is "special" here is that people...

    The part where it pretends that our species is intelligent, mature, and responsible enough to develop technology that safely harnesses the energy released by nuclear fission.

    Indeed. I often find it puzzling whenever someone develops for a platform that I do not personally benefit from ;-) I honestly believe that they fully intend to support porting efforts 'after' they...

    But that's just it... forks are no different than branches, merges, tagging, versioning, etc. It's not something to be 'liked' or 'disliked'. It's an entirely neutral construct. I will concede...

    Yeah, but the commenters here seem to view "to fork" as some derogatory, profane, and harmful action. It's difficult for civil discourse to exist when there's such a grand misunderstanding.

    I was going to comment on this, and realized that this thread was beyond the help of any sane and reasonable individual.

    Do you guys get paid to toll this forum? Seriously, what gives?

    Indeed. We even have a special term in the english language, and in copyright law, for the relationship between OSX and the components that it is 'derived' from.

    The two projects complement each other., they do not compete against one another. What is good for one can only make the other stronger as well. That's why we bother.

    Allow me to jump on the bandwagon.

    I think ReactOS is a great idea and wish them success. When I need to open an "Aldus Pagemaker 5.0" file that someone made in 1997, I do not want to have to pay...

    Dear AMD/NVidia,

    Your nomenclature schemes needs to change. Please fix it, or I will personally make it my mission to troll every "Radeon 10,000 Series" review next year.

    Sincerely,...

    Michael,

    That "Steam Machine" of yours sure has a strange looking desktop. Is that the Office 95 toolbar on the left side of the screen? What's with the "Jersey Turnpike Public Restroom" color...

    I do not know whether Intel "insisted" that vendors use SMM, or was forced to provide SMM and leverage it because they perceived that MS/HP/Dell would resist kernel-side implementations in an effort...

    I think you might be misunderstanding the case here. Apple implemented a subset of the spec in firmware (cold plug) and the rest in software (hot plug). Is this really considered deviation? Aren't...

    The man speaks the truth.

    While uninteresting to most of us, it boils down to the following.

    Physical access to a computer/device = Game over / Compromised
    Remote access to a computer/device...

    I do not necessarily disagree with this. I do think that iPodPhone/Pad was the catalyst for quite a few Mac converts, though by 2007, the Mac (and OSX) was in good enough shape to handle the influx...

    What's up with the unnecessary over-pimping of "Ubuntu" on Phoronix lately? Are they a sponsor now?

    I believe Apple/PS3 use Darwin, which appears to be a derivative of FreeBSD.
