heh, ... what a little side note can do to a thread
anyways, since my original questions was already answered by a someone and i also confirmed this i am ok with this turn of events ... but the topic is misleading for other people .. so a new thread (if its worth it) would be better.
dunno if UBB features this but Moderators care for a split?
anyways yes OS X still has quirks that seem to glaring that it makes me believe these are quirks simply ugly hacks to get OS X out the door. The BeOS guru goes Mac OS X article lists a bunch of them. I do believe Apple will work them out. Apple simply needed something out the door and apps to be written for the platform.
OS X is final in alot of areas and working but a joke in some others. Unfortunatly those can be such a huge drawback to make the whole OS so inefficient to make you make people either stick with their old PC or their good old Mac OS.
My reason to make the switch would actually be hardware (do you guys here that often? i doubt it
- well actually its ****ing hard to resist the beauty if a powerbook)related combined with a good faith that Apple will manage to fix OS X within 2002 to a level where all areas of the OS have been given atleast some basic level of love.
If Apple manages to "fix" OS X in 2002 they can be quite proud if themselves of having achieved what so many people have tried to achieve in the Unix platform. And by basing it all on the Unix Platform they have achieved what so many Windows Users have dreamed off as well.
