    On the Michael work i see this kind of statement:



    "A MUST BUY"...
    " If you are interested in purchasing Mac OS X 10.6, it is available through Amazon.com for just $25 USD."

    Please, make benchmarks, it's ok, we like it, but try to not make any mistake like this; because, IE, you forgot to mention that it's NOT legal to use Osx on non Apple branded PC.

    Apple Hardware DO NOT cost like a normal Pc hardware...

    You forgot to mention the most IMMENSE restriction about this software product: you have to buy Apple Hardware to work with.
    So you mean that Michael's words should be something like:
    So if you don't care about spenading an enormous amount of money on restricted hardware and software and if you find proprietary software so attractive so to can't live without it (in other words if you are a Mac OS X user) and are at all concerned about the performance of your system blah blah blah...
    Well it doesn't change anything man. There are reasons to exist both users who use free software and users who use window$ and Maco$X. To repeat them all the time is tiresome.

      The GPL serves the FSF nothing more. Every companies contribution to the linux kernel for example serves their product.

        Again, you think, and your wrong. Read the developer papers on OS X before assuming because your assumptions have no basis in fact.

          Your habbit to begin flame-wars and to convert threads goes well deanjo but how convining can be someone who accepts eagerly the so restricted licenses of Microsoft and Apple when judge GPL negative?

            As someone who has worked under all of those licenses I have every right to be negative about them. If I had my way, everything would be public domain.

            Code is nothing but a form of math. Imagine what the world would be like if someone put restrictions on the ability to add 2+2.

              It is, I just said you are not convincing by using your right. Especially you.

              If I had my way, everything would be public domain.
              With words is easy, your attitude though with the people/software/licenses which at least try to do that, says the opposite.

              Oh I couldn't agree more, but that's exactly what the proprietary software, that you defend, does. Because of that they got an X bigger than OSX's one from me.

                I totally disagree: it change A LOT.

                Benchmarks are welcome, but advertising and supporting Locked-in and restricted products on a site like this one, it's an absurd, IMHO.

                  It's a completely unrealistic goal anyway.

                    And I have to disagree with you. If I put out code free of any restrictions my goal is to benefit the end user, not political agendas. If someone wants to use my code and want's to slap it in a proprietary app so be it. This philosphy has worked well for sqlite which is everywhere and the end result is everybody gains.

                      So you want to benefit the end user without adding restrictions. Nice and welcome. But the restrictions your code will have when someone uses it for its proprietary app don't matter? Are they for the genearl benefit? Like that you produce much more restrictions than you intented to do when you offered the code without any at all.
