quote:Not everyone who wants to run Mac OS X wants to purchase a prebuilt computer for it. You should know that if you're posting here because this site is mostly made up of enthusiasts.
quote:Mac OS X w/ Front Row isn't comparable to Windows MCE
quote:Our beta version of Vista came on two separate DVDs, one for x86 and one for x64, but we're not sure at this point if Microsoft is going to package Vista in a dual-layer DVD with an installer that can pick the right version, or if it will continue to come on separate discs. It's also worth noting that Vista will choose which version of itself to install based on the product key used, as now all versions (for x64 and x86) will use the same installation media, which will be a relief for doing reinstalls.
quote:Out of the box, Vista's firewall is a full-featured firewall that can block inbound and outbound connections. Tiger's firewall can't do the latter
quote:When a version of Mac OS X ships with a proper GUI for controlling outbound firewalling(as is the Apple way), then it will be capable by a reasonable definition.
quote:Granted there is still quite some time before final release but even with RC1 of XP it was a rock solid stable OS that I used as my full time OS and never had any issues whatsoever
quote: The real problem however lies in the fact that I know I will move up to Vista at some point, but not because it's a better OS than XP but that I'll be hindered by continuing to use an older operating system.
quote:There are far better means of controlling permissions within an OS that would have made a lot more sense that what we have now with UAC
quote:What has OS got to do with programming?
quote:Linux is going to replace Windows
quote:OSX officially runs on x86 hardware, as long as it has an Apple logo on it. We did it to not have to worry about drivers and such. Yeah, as if you don't both have the same Intel chipset to support.
quote:To be fair, microsoft supports a huge number out of the box. They just can't support all of it.
quote: Windows has such a feature called Windows update
quote: But no, in order to retain the economic's of the IBM clone market, there needs to be no such Apple like control over the market.
quote:6. Instead of asking for permission all the time, why not allow the control panel to open, then ask, then do not ask again when using anything in it?
quote:7. Like mentioned, why make it so hard to hide the turn off button? Stupid.
quote:11. Usual Microsoft behavior: Change for the sake of change (that damn power button!)
